Algorand was launched in 2019 and is designed as a payment-focussed network. It aims to create a business-ready protocol that solves the blockchain trilemma. Algorand deploys a unique two-tiered structure combined with Proof-of-Stake to achieve this and offers both incredibly fast transaction speeds and transaction finality.
The project attracted a diverse set of early-stage investors due to its potential use case and ability to provide a foundation for existing businesses, and new ones, to easily create projects operating globally in the decentralized economy.
Algorand uses a unique and permissionless pure Proof-of-Stake protocol that supports the scale, open participation, and transaction finality required to build systems for potentially billions of users. It is built on Byzantine agreement and is unique to the network. This means that the ecosystem reaches consensus in a completely decentralized manner and is fully scalable.
Any user who is online and possesses stake is eligible to participate in the consensus protocol. Algo holders are randomly selected every time there is a new block. They then “validate and approve” the subsequent block in the chain.
Block generation does not require any expensive computation. Participation costs are very low and are therefore not a barrier to participation. The more ALGO a user holds, the higher their chance of being selected to verify and validate new blocks and transactions. This process allows Algorand to approve and finalize transactions in seconds
Furthermore, Algorand’s block rewards are distributed to all ALGO coin holders. In this manner, all ALGO holders earn rewards instead of just block producers. A user receives a number of rewards proportional to their stake for every block committed to the chain. Algorand does this to encourage new users and to accelerate its path to decentralization. Also, Algorand enables users to create smart contracts and tokens that represent both new and existing assets. The platform allows developers to use the Algorand Standard Asset (ASA) protocol to do this. For example, stablecoins such as USDT and USDC exist as ASAs on Algorand’s blockchain and have higher throughput and lower transaction fees than Ethereum.
ASA’s also enable Role Based Asset Control (RBAC). This means that assets can be controlled with flexibility. For example, assets can be quarantined for investigative purposes, or a transfer of assets can be forced if regulations or any law requires it. As well as various user protections, such as asset spam protections that prevent unknown assets from being sent to users without their explicit approval.
Algornad also supports NFTs. The platform facilitates almost instant finally, nominal transaction fees and also fractional ownership. This means that assets with higher prices can have shared ownership through NFT, thus making them a lot more accessible.
Designed as a tool for developers to easily create new applications, the use cases for Algorand are wide-spreading. As well as more commonly seen crypto use cases in DeFi, gaming, and stablecoins, the Algorand platform has facilitated projects in real estate, copyright, microfinance, and governance.
For example, as central banks continue to research networks to host digital currencies, Algorand has become a viable option, the Marshall Islands has chosen it to host its central bank digital currency.
