Why ALGO has a spot on our suggested coin list
ALGO is a fantastic method for quick peer to peer transfers typically taking less than 30 seconds to perform a transaction. In fact, the transaction speed of ALGO is nearly instantaneous. The Algorand Blockchain achieves this by way of Atomic Transfer. Algorand Atomic Transfer is built into the first layer of the Algorand Blockchain. An Atomic Transfer is an irreducible batch transfer of assets. To put it simply, all the transactions happening within an Atomic Transfer need to go through, or none of them go through. This feature of the Algorand Blockchain guarantees safe transactions, and incredibly fast speeds! The cost of a transaction on the Algorand Blockchain is 0.1-1 ALGO. Currently 1 ALGO is worth about $1.40 USD. This means you can use ALGO to send both large and small transactions instantaneously for around the cost of 1 USD!
Now that we have covered the usefulness of ALGO, let’s discuss why The Algorand Blockchain is being used for a multitude of DeFi projects. We will also discuss how the projects being built on the Algorand Blockchain can lead to bullish price action for the ALGO coin. Previous cryptocurrencies have seen problems with security and overall usefulness their the blockchain grows in scale. Algorand is different than many other DeFi projects, in that many of Algorand’s most useful features are built in to the first level of the Algorand Blockchain. This is useful for developers who are building on the Algorand Blockchain and users alike. Basically, the Algorand Blockchain can continue to scale in size without compromising its own efficiency.
The Algorand Foundation is another big driving force. The Algorand Foundation offers grants to developers who are building on the Algorand Blockchain. The foundation has reserved $250M USD which is strictly used to fund Algorand blockchain based projects. For traders of ALGO this means grater stability of the ALGO coin.
Algorand is currently making some big moves in the world of smart contracts. The Republic of the Marshall Islands has selected Algorand to power its sovereign national currency known as SOV! This is the first instance of a nation adopting a standard digital currency in history! The Marshall Islands SOV currency will circulate alongside the US Dollar and is primarily intended to aid the Marshall Islands participation in the global economy.
