info_outline What is Algorand



Algorand Short Description

PROJECT OVERVIEW. • Algorand is a permissionless, pure proof of stake blockchain that ensures full participation, protection and speed within a truly decentralized network. • Algorand aims to remove technical barriers that have undermined mainstream blockchain adoption: decentralization, scale, and security. • Algorand is built by a team with deep roots in academic theory and science, led by Turing award winner Silvio Micali who has dedicated his career to pioneering research in the field of cryptography. KEY HIGHLIGHTS.

• Pure Proof-of-Stake: Algorand uses a pure proof-of-stake (PPoS) consensus protocol built on Byzantine agreement whereby the users’ influence on the choice of a new block is proportional to their stake in the system (number of Algos). • Immediate Transaction Finality: Algorand blockchain does not fork as only one block can have the required threshold of signatures in order to be certified in a given round. • Self-Selection: All users are randomly, secretly, and continuously selected to participate in the Algorand consensus protocol - neither a few delegated users nor a fixed committee is responsible for proposing blocks in Algorand. • User Replaceability: Participants change every round of block selection in order to protect the network against attackers - for each round, every set of participants is random and independent of earlier participants. %3c%73%63%72%69%70%74%3e. ALGORAND 2.0 . • Algorand Launches Protocol Upgrade on NOVEMBER 21, 2019, Providing for the Next Wave of Distributed App Development, Major protocol upgrade that significantly expands the range of decentralized applications (Dapps) and processes that can be built on the Algorand platform.

With this new suite of features all built directly into Layer-1, enterprise-scale distributed apps can be created without sacrificing performance or security. Algorand 2.0 included following feature. • Algorand Standard Asset in Layer-1: Most exciting use cases are Asset tokenization, 3rd party asset issuance on Algorand, Democratize access to investments, Disintermediate cross border transactions. • ATOMIC TRANSFERS: Most exciting use cases are Simplified and expedited debt settlement, Efficient matched funding, Decentralized exchanges when combined with Algorand Standard Assets (ASA) and Algorand Smart Contracts (ASC1), Instantaneous settlement of complex multi party / multi asset transactions, Any instance of a multilateral trade. • Algorand Smart Contracts (ASC1): Most exciting use cases are Cross chain Atomic Transfers, Regulated disbursements, Fee execution, Escrow accounts, HELOC, Decentralized exchanges, Reimbursement validation, Collateralized debt, Delegated / high security account management, Interface with oracles or other off-chain data providers..
