What is Algorand (ALGO)?

Algorand (ALGO) is the native cryptocurrency of the Algorand blockchain, an open-source smart contract blockchain network for DeFi solutions, dApps, digital assets, and NFT creation. The Algorand blockchain is designed, from the ground up, for complex applications, with the aim of guaranteeing speed, scalability, and security while being cost-effective and precise.

Algorand is backed and funded by the Singapore-based Algorand Foundation and was created in 2017 by Turing-award-winning Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor Silvio Micali. The Algorand mainnet went live in 2019.

 

What Makes the Algorand (ALGO) Coin Unique?

The Algorand blockchain is built with a unique proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism called pure-proof-of-stake (PPoS) paired with a Byzantine agreement (BA) protocol. The mechanism allows for a random selection of blockchain validators, almost like a lottery with larger staking accounts getting a higher but random chance of verifying blocks.

When a new block of transactions is proposed to the blockchain, a committee of voters is selected to vote on the block proposal. If a “super majority” of the votes are from “honest” participants, the block can be verified and secured. Voting power depends on the size of the stake. Higher-stake accounts will likely have more voting power, but randomly selected committees enable the protocol’s good performance while allowing anyone in the Algorand network to participate.

The protocol is fast, and each blockchain node uses minimal computational power, making it potentially more energy-efficient than other chains. Algorand is a competitor to Ethereum and is apparently faster, but so far, it lacks the liquidity and patronage of Ethereum. Algorand aims to remove barriers for developers as the system does not require technical smart contract programming.

 

What Is Algorand (ALGO) Used for?

Algorand (ALGO) is the token used to govern the network via staking in Algorand’s PPoS consensus mechanism. It has substantial utility across the Algorand ecosystem and is used to pay transaction fees on the network and to reward staking network participants. ALGO is also a tradeable asset and store of value that is widely bought and sold on exchanges.

Algorand also has its AlgoFi P2P lending protocol, which allows participants to earn rewards in the form of interest for lending cryptocurrency. Users provide liquidity to interest-generating lending pools to participate in this initiative.

 

How Does Algorand (ALGO) Work?

Holders with a minimum of 1 ALGO can stake their tokens and become part of the Algorand network validation process. Validators are chosen at random by the Algorand protocol to confirm blocks of transactions.

Developers can build dApps, DeFi projects, and tokens on Algorand, just like on Ethereum. The Algorand network is available to any company or individual, but the network has been designed to handle enterprise-level use.

 

How Is the Price of Algorand (ALGO) Determined?

The Algorand (ALGO) price is influenced by market conditions and by the adoption rate of Algorand as a smart contract blockchain. The supply of ALGO is capped at 10 billion tokens, which adds some scarcity. All ALGO coins were minted when the network launched. Algorand’s liquid supply increases as pre-minted tokens unlock and are distributed.

 

The following factors can influence ALGO price:

  • Supply, demand, and scarcity
  • Liquidity
  • ALGO market sentiment
  • Wider cryptocurrency market sentiment
  • The success of the Algorand blockchain
  • How Algorand performs against competitors such as Ethereum and Solana
