What is ALGO ?
Algorand is a quality blockchain project and it is easy to see why it has a huge audience in the crypto community. This protocol is designed for high performance and comes with fast transactions and low fees. It has a very knowledgeable team behind it, led by Micali, an MIT professor, which gives them credit. It is easy for developers to use as it supports many programming languages. There are no obvious weaknesses in Algorand. It has strong competition with a number of smart-contract blockchains. In fact, Algorand is a good choice when it comes to investing in digital currencies with growth potential.
In general, ALGO is very good in terms of fundamental analysis and volume of currency transactions. In July 2019, Algorand’s price was around the $0.56 mark. Beginning in 2021, the currency began to experience a bullish trend. A multi-year high of $1.71 was reached on February 12th, 2021, after it had been trading at a price of around $0.56 for most of January.
This increase might have had several causes. There was an increasing demand for stablecoins at the start of 2021. Stablecoins combine the stability of fiat currency with the decentralized nature of cryptocurrencies. Algorand emerged as a competitive alternative for stablecoin issuers at the beginning of 2021 because Ethereum had high gas prices. Later, El Salvador declared on August 31 that Algorand would serve as the foundation for its cryptocurrency infrastructure. At that time, the coin was trading for about $1.112. The cost quickly increased over the next few days, reaching a new post-launch record high of $2.38 on September 12, 2021. As the crypto market started to experience fluctuations in 2022, ALGO as well has experienced all-time lows. But just like in 2021, ALGO saw some recovery when file sharing software developer LimeWire chose Algorand to power its NFT marketplace. As it can be seen through ALGO’s growth pattern, important news and collaborations can greatly affect its price. On that note, FIFA announced its partnership with Algorand at the start of May, making the network the organization's official blockchain platform and source of its official blockchain-supported wallet. Some crypto market professionals predict that ALGO price in 2030 might even reach up to $4 mark. You should keep in mind that the psychology of users greatly drives the crypto market sentiments. We recommend you to do your own research and get help from experts before investing.
Is Algorand reliable
For a public blockchain where all users can safely transact, hold valuable assets, and create reliable enterprise applications, security is a must-have. Algorithms in Algorand maintain protection against intrusions on the network at the level of the proof-of-stake protocol. All while, it preserves the security of each user's account. According to Argoland’s security team, for a user to take part in the proof-of-stake protocol, their account must be active. Online users do not use their private payment methods, such as credit cards and their signing keys. Instead, a user must create and register a secret participation key. An online account may propose and confirm blocks using this key. After a predetermined number of rounds, the participation key expires and must be replaced by a new one in order to continue participation. The spending key (the keys they use to sign transactions and spend their stake) and the participation key of a user are additionally separated. Therefore, even if a user's participation keys are compromised, their stake is still secure.
It is worth mentioning that Algorandy is a decentralized open-source network that uses a two-layer architecture in order to achieve scalability, security and decentralization. Algorand’s key aim is to create full decentralization with high security and scalability while achieving 1000 transactions per second and fast block finalization.
