Algorand Blockchain is an open-source software company working towards constructing a borderless economy. The company created a Pure Proof-of-Stake protocol with open participation, scalability, security and transaction finality. Algorand aims to solve the three main problems faced by blockchains today, called the blockchain trilemma of: security, scalability, and decentralization.
Blocks are built into 2 phases in Algorand. These blocks are built through lotteries known as “cryptographic sortition” which allow fast transactions and ensure that the time of waiting 30+ days for transactions to be completed are truly behind us.
The first stage is the Proposal Phase: A single token is chosen, and the owner proposes the following block. This proposer is only identifiable to the whole network during the propagation phase: it is already too late to interfere. In Pure PoS every token has the same power to be chosen.
Voting Round: a board of owners of 1,000 random tokens are selected, approving the new blocks proposed by the first user. In contrast to the fixed committee system in various Proof-of-stake or Proof-of-work blockchains, this random selection of the committee members makes the protocol extremely secure against outside party attacks as hackers are unsure of what creators to target.
There is a total supply of 5.54 billion Algorand tokens with approximately 3.06 billion in circulation currently.
Algorand was founded by MIT computer science professor, Silvio Micali, in 2017. He is famous for his fundamental contributions to the theory and practice of secure two-party computation, digital currency, cryptocurrency and blockchain protocols. Micali has been renowned as one of the most innovative thinkers in the cryptocurrency realm.
