About Blockchains

What is Algorand?

Algorand emerges as a blockchain platform committed to fostering transparency and enabling the growth of decentralized projects and applications. Operating as a public, decentralized blockchain, it leverages a Pure Proof-of-Stake (PPoS) consensus mechanism to uphold network security, efficiency, and decentralization. Powered by the Algorand Consensus Algorithm, the network employs a combination of cryptographic techniques and random selection to attain consensus, effectively addressing the constraints of traditional consensus mechanisms.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum emerges as a decentralized, open-source blockchain platform empowering developers to craft and deploy smart contracts alongside dApps. Pioneering the smart contract concept, Ethereum enables self-executing agreements with terms directly encoded into its blockchain, eliminating the need for intermediaries. Additionally, Ethereum serves as a hub for the creation and exchange of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and various digital assets. Its intrinsic cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), facilitates network transactions and incentivizes miners to uphold network security. Ethereum's evolution to Ethereum 2.0 introduces a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, aiming to enhance scalability and energy efficiency.
