Algorand builds technology that accelerates the convergence between decentralized and traditional finance by enabling the simple creation of next generation financial products, protocols and exchange of value.
Algorand created the world’s first pure proof-of-stake foundational blockchain designed for the future of finance. Beyond the elementary requirement of an open, public network, Algorand’s technology enables a set of high performing Layer-1 blockchains that provide security, scalability, complete transaction finality, built in privacy, Co-Chains, and advanced smart contracts that are essential in a FutureFi world.
Our continuing technical innovation and development is focused on:
The first use of Algorand's blockchain technology was the open-source Algorand MainNet. The world's first pure proof-of-stake protocol, the Algorand blockchain is overseen by the Algorand Foundation and is open for any individual or organization to interact with.
