Algorand is a cryptocurrency and blockchain protocol that aims to be simultaneously scalable, secure, and decentralized. It uses a consensus algorithm called pure proof-of-stake.

What Is Algorand (ALGO)?

Algorand (ALGO) is a distributedledgerthat aims to remove the technical barriers in the blockchain and has a permissionless consensus mechanism

According to the Algorand whitepaper, the current blockchain faces the main challenges of the “blockchain trilemma”: security, scalability, and decentralization.

Algorand relies on randomness to solve the blockchain trilemma and uses the pure proof-of-stake (PPoS) algorithm built on a Byzantine agreement. A Byzantine agreement is a protocol for communication that allows the distributed system users to reach a consensus in the presence of malicious actors. PPoS helps achieve greater scalability without compromising the decentralization and security of the network while preventing a potential 51% attack

  • Decentralization: Algorand does this by selecting validators randomly from all token holders. The PPoS algorithm automatically picks the nodes belonging to the next group that becomes eligible to add blocks. Everyone can be selected by the system, thus maintaining decentralization on the platform. This ensures security (an important element in the trilemma), and no one knows who the next validators will be. On the platform, the PPoS algorithm uses staking to allow every token holder to potentially become a block validator. Thus, all users hold an equal chance to be chosen by the system. In this way, the network ensures decentralization. 

  • Scalability: Currently, Algorand processes over 1,200 transactions per second and aims to process 3,000 transactions per second with instant finality.

  • Security: Algorand is an unforkable blockchain that enables a high level of security.

ALGO is the native utility token of the Algorand network. The token is used to secure the consensus used to build each block on the platform and pay for every transaction. The platform aims to use the token to govern the growth of the Algorand ecosystem and as governance rewards for those who commit to voting as part of governing.
