Algorand has solved the famous blockchain trilemma by providing a permissionless, Pure PoS blockchain that is simultaneously fully decentralized, scalable, and secure. The Algorand network launched last June via a world-wide Dutch auction, conducted on chain, proving its ability to handle tokenization at scale. In this talk we shall focus Algorands next wave of technology: Vault, Pixel, Self-Validating Transactions, and Atomic2 Swaps.
