Along with these features, the speed of processing more transactions and decreasing computing power needed to implement the network, were considered by the Algorand team.One of the things that distinguishes Algorand from other projects is the use of the Proof of Stake mechanism. With proof of stake, new transactions and blocks can be created and processed faster and more efficiently. According to the network's developers, this process allows Algorand's blockchain to be universal, decentralized and secure.
