DuckDAO has always strived to keep up with the latest technology and diversify our users’ choices. The DuckSTARTER platform is where they provide public token launches for projects and investors alike, making a case for a wide array of blockchain availability as we move towards a blockchain-agnostic platform.
Since its inception in 2021, the DuckSTARTER platform has added 4 of the largest blockchain networks for support. Today, they’re pleased to introduce the world-renowned Algorand blockchain to DuckSTARTER.
Launched in 2019, Algorand is a powerful and advanced layer-1 PoS (Proof of Stake) blockchain built for payments and creates a worldwide borderless economy. The network is known for its high efficiency and throughput, boasting between four to five second block times and over 1,000 TPS (transactions per second).
Its underlying blockchain infrastructure is designed to remain one instead of a multi-chain approach, allowing it to retain faster transaction finality. It also provides high levels of scalability and security to allow for the natural progression and evolution of decentralized financial systems. Given its PoS consensus mechanism, there’s no mining on the Algorand network, directly translating into lower fees and more sustainability.
Algorand was founded by Silvio Micali, an MIT professor, and is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. The team comprises a variety of computer scientists, mathematicians, researchers, scientists, and economists who are looking to develop advanced technologies to help widen financial opportunities on a global scale.
The Algorand Foundation is a non-profit that manages and funds the project’s core development. $ALGO is the native token that helps power and run the Algorand protocol.
