Independent Reserve are great. I've used them for over a year now and they are very helpful and responsive to any questions. Highly recommended.Adam D.Google review
The quality of service which Independent Reserve provides is something that you don't find in many other crypto exchanges. Its customer service is fantastic. For a person who just started with cryptocurrencies, his customer service officer, Roger, patiently guided me along the way — highly recommended.Yim S.Google review
Great local and simple to use exchange with outstanding support. I had an issue with transferring currency between an investment platform and an exchange due to my error. Their support went above and beyond to help me out.Patrick I.Google review
Highly recommend Independent Reserve for the level of efficiency and support I've received on many occasions based on lack of experience in cryptocurrency trading on my part. On every occasion the staff have been unbelievably patient, caring and accommodating successfully resolving matters beyond my expectations! Great work guys!Eddie B.Google review
I find the level of service by the support team at Independent Reserve to be prompt, knowledgeable, patient!!! and they work with you to solve the issue. Yesterday, I was using PayId for the first time and after a few false starts, Melanie had me all sorted out. A previous issue I had with my initial purchases was also extremely well-handled. They way they handle queries, educates you and gets you off to a good start...Graham T.Google review
As someone who has integrated to over 20 crypto exchanges via their APIs, I can say Independent Reserve has the best API documentation by far.
Their customer support is also excellent which is something most exchanges sadly lack these days.Nick AddisonConsenSys
I organise and host blockchain meetups and conferences and am always hearing very positive things when it comes to Independent Reserve which is why I always recommend them.
They are by far the most trusted crypto exchange in Australia for consumer trading as well as institutional investment, and offer a great 'open order book' unlike most other Australia exchanges.Lucas CullenBlockchain developer
I find Independent Reserve to be one of the easiest, smoothest cryptocurrency exchanges that I use.
The client onboarding process was simple, it is easy to deposit funds and I particularly like the transparency of market depth and speed of execution.Claire Wivell PlaterManaging Director, The Fold Legal Pty Ltd

What is Solana (SOL)?
Solana is a cryptocurrency and layer 1 protocol specifically created to improve blockchain scalability. Built for speed and high throughput, the network's ability to scale allows Solana to process faster, cheaper transactions and support a wide range of decentralised applications (dApps).
The Solana platform features built-in support for smart contracts and provides a more efficient building environment compared to Ethereum. Solana smart contracts, called Programs, make it easy for developers to build, test and deploy their own Web 3 products without needing any prior blockchain experience.
The Solana ecosystem is diverse and hosts a wide range of services that includes; gaming, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), music apps, decentralised finance (DeFi), and decentralised exchanges (DEXs).
Programs (smart contracts) are written in Rust, however, the protocol can also support other programming languages, including C++ and Solidity (Ethereum) as well as other third-party clients, like Substrate (Polkadot).
The native token of Solana is SOL, which is used as a utility token to pay transaction fees on the Solana blockchain. Solana has 360 million coins in circulation and a total market cap of approximately 533 million.
