Unlike previous blockchains, the Algorand platform solves the “blockchain trilemma” by offering the true decentralization, scalability and security that businesses need while also distributing opportunity to everyone who builds applications or transacts on the Algorand platform. Algorand provides an infrastructure for existing businesses and new projects to operate globally in the emerging decentralized economy. Algorand’s first-of-its-kind, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake protocol supports the scale, open participation, and transaction finality required to build systems for billions of users.
