What are Wrapped SOL Tokens on Solana?

The Solana blockchain uses a native token called SOL to fuel transactions on the network. In order to promote wider adoption and use of the Solana blockchain, the team behind Solana created Wrapped SOL (WSL). WSL is an ERC20 token that is backed 1:1 by SOL tokens held in a secure multisig wallet. This means that every WSL token in circulation is backed by a corresponding SOL token on the Solana blockchain.

WSL tokens can be used in any Ethereum-compatible wallet, making it much easier for users of the Ethereum network to access and use the Solana blockchain. In addition, WSL tokens can be traded on any Ethereum
