Why Algorand

The blockchain industry is at an inflection point.  With deep roots in academic theory and scientific white papers, the enormous promise of this transformative technology has largely gone unfulfilled as a seemingly intractable trilemma of technical barriers have undermined the trust and capabilities necessary for mainstream adoption and business relevance.  Until now.

Built for a Decentralized Economy

Decentralization matters to businesses because it matters to their customers. As consumers drive economies toward an increasingly digital, transparent, and borderless reality, businesses must embrace technology that supports decentralization to both remain strategically relevant and to participate in the economic potential of this new decentralized world.
