On June 19, 2019, the Algorand Foundation, based in Boston, Massachusetts, debuted its blockchain mainnet. Simultaneously, it completed a sale of 25 million tokens for $2.40 each, raising $60 million. “The Algorand Foundation is the first organisation to run a completely transparent worldwide auction on its own blockchain,” according to the company’s news statement. (Despite its “global” nature, the Algorand Foundation website notes that “participation in auctions is not possible for the following excluded jurisdictions: United States of America and its territories, Canada, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Cuba, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Republic of Crimea, People’s Republic of China.

Algorand is the high transaction and settlement speed protocol for a permissionless blockchain, according to an online cryptocurrency statistics and research news service. Silvio Micali, the creator of the Algorand Foundation, is an MIT professor and the 2012 Turing Award recipient, an international honour for computer scientists.

Algorand is a business that is developing an open source public ledger that uses the Byzantine Agreement message-passing protocol to establish network consensus. The Algorand protocol is currently in its early stages of development, but it is intended to be a blockchain-based payment network.

Funding

Algorand’s creators, who include MIT professor and Turing Award winner Silvio Micali, have received $64 million in investment from venture capital companies Pillar and Union Square Ventures. Algorand stock investments have the option of being converted into tokens.

Consensus Mechanism

The blockchain’s consensus process works in one of two modes: permissioned or permissionless, comparable to a proof of stake protocol. This enables a block producer to create honest blocks with little processing. The blockchain presupposes that two-thirds of the block producers are trustworthy and that the process is not adversarial or Byzantine.

Secret Self-Selection

Algorand is working on a decentralised consensus technique that uses hidden self-selection to find fresh block producers and validators.

Users pick a leader, who is in charge of proposing the next block, and members of a committee who are responsible for voting on the validity of that block, using a verifiable random function based on a seed produced in the previous block. This cryptographic lottery produces a rotating, random selection of self-selecting committee members. Members of the committee perform the computation in secret to see if they won the lottery by chance, and they do not divulge their identities until they send their message or vote to the network using a credential in the form of a digital proof or signature. By obscuring the identities of the committee until after they have propagated their information to the network, this secrecy is designed to increase network resilience against committee member corruption by a hostile adversary.

Player Replaceability

Because the Byzantine Agreement procedure is multi-step, there is a risk that enemies will corrupt committee members after they have been disclosed in the first phase. Algorand attempts to address this problem by having each step of the Byzantine Agreement process carried out by a player-replaceable protocol in which committee members are swapped out at each step, preventing the adversary from predicting the committee member in any step until after they have completed their task.

Forking Probability

Because the chance of a protocol fork is expected to be 1/1,000,000,000, blocks can be deemed final after validation.

Network Assumptions

Security is predicated on a two-thirds majority of online nodes being trustworthy. The protocol also makes the assumption that all communications will reach honest users in a timely manner.
