ALGO Facts : Did you know...

By SBenbow | SBenbow | 21 Apr 2021

I like ALGO mainly because I trade in it and therefore I am mentally invested in this specific altcoin.  So whilst waiting for some of those trades to take place (be it minutes, hours, or days) I decided to do a bit of research and present you with four fun Algorand facts.

1) Algorand powers the first national digital currency

The Marshall Islands were the first country to adopt a national digital currency.  The digital currency, known as the SOV will circulate alongside the US dollar, and Algorand was selected to power the SOV because it was deemed to have the best functionality required to issue, manage, and distribute SOV on a global level.

2) Algorand is one of the fastest tokens to be listed on Coinbase

The ALGO token becomes one of the fastest tokens to be listed on Coinbase on 9th August 2019.  It was the 14th August when you could transfer ALGO to your Coinbase Pro account ahead of trading the next day.

3) A 1,500%+ Return?

If you had purchased $100 of ALGO on March 13th 2020 at it's lowest value you would have received 978.47 ALGO coins.

If you had sold 978.47 ALGO coins on the Feb 13th 2021 at it's highest value you would have recieved $1,534

That's a 1,534% increase (15.34 x investment back) by hodl'ing for only 11 months.


4) Maximum ALGO to be Minted?

The fixed maximum supply amount of Algo to be minted is 10 billion.

In fact the entire ALGO supply was minted at Genesis at the launch of the network. 

Pre-minted tokens will be unlocked and distributed according to a schedule by 2030.  Less than half of all Algo has already been released.
