What is Algorand?
Algorand, founded in 2017, says it’s a permissionless, public and decentralized blockchain. It’s similar to Bitcoin or Ethereum in this respect. It’s designed to serve as a base-level blockchain protocol on which other dapps can be built and smart contracts operated.
One thing that makes Algorand different is that it claims to be highly scalable, so it’s not prone to the same bottlenecks or fee issues that Bitcoin or Ethereum frequently are. It uses a proof-of-stake system that provides immediate transaction finality, which eliminates a lot of the forking problems of earlier blockchains.

What to consider when buying AlgorandThere are risks involved in purchasing any cryptocurrency, and even though ALGO aims to offer more assurances through its money-back and Dutch auction system, it still carries many of the same risks as any other cryptocurrency, including a complete loss of funds in the event of hacking or other misadventure:
- The prevalence of protocol-level blockchain tokens. There are a lot of base-level blockchain protocols out there, and Algorand is operating in an extremely competitive area.
- Complications. The Algorand system is complex, and there may be issues with bugs or other errors down the line.
- Regulatory issues. As a public, permissionless blockchain protocol, Algorand occupies something of a regulatory gray area, and it may be unpredictably affected by regulatory shifts.
- User participation. Algorand emphasizes user participation, but this might be lacking if everyone is only interested in it for speculation.
