As Algorand rapidly approaches the launch of our MainNet, I am more convinced than ever of the massive opportunity we have to reboot the financial systems of the world. As the first blockchain to solve the infamous “trilemma” of decentralization, scalability and security, Algorand is uniquely positioned to be the first public, pure proof-of-stake protocol that fulfills the promise of blockchain for developers, businesses, and users who want to participate in the borderless economy.

To that end, I am presenting an update on Algorand this week at Consensus in New York on Wednesday, May 15th at 10:30am. I plan to talk about the latest Algorand technical innovation and roadmap required to build a truly borderless economy. I hope to see you there!

I also wanted to include our latest protocol technical paper, and three of Algorand’s latest blog posts that offer the most up-to-date information on our core protocol, and our forthcoming technology.

Current Algorand Technical Paper:

Additional information on the Algorand core protocol can be found on the Algorand Foundation website (https://algorand.foundation) that was launched last week.

See you at Consensus. Go Algorand!
