Crypto Asset Statement

What is Algorand (ALGO)?

Algorand is a decentralized financial network and cryptocurrency platform. Designed for low environmental impact, its pure proof-of-stake (PPoS) consensus mechanism enables high transaction speeds and instant settlement, without sacrificing security or decentralization. Algorand nodes reach consensus about what should appear in the blockchain through this PPoS consensus based on a staking system (instead of a Proof of Work mining system like Bitcoin’s) to verify new transactions and produce new crypto tokens. The ALGO cryptocurrency is used to participate in transaction processing and network governance. You can buy and sell ALGO for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade ALGO for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade ALGO to CAD based on the ALGO price.
