If you think that’s bad, my average for ALGO is $1.59 🤡💀🪦

Mentions:#ALGO

ALGO was intentionally fucked by the governance model. Used to just receive interest for every second you held it. They wanted to hold everyone captive while they were being dumped on. Still my favorite chain to interact with regardless of how much I have spent on my bags.

Mentions:#ALGO

They aren't. QRL has been quantum secure from genesis and while ALGO has hired a cryptography export in the form of Chris Peikert, they still use elliptic curve cryptography for their signature scheme which is absolutely not quantum secure. Algorand is going to have the same problems as everyone else

Mentions:#QRL#ALGO

No it can't, not simply. This is a massive undertaking that will be a minimum of 5 years assuming the core devs can even come to consensus on which algorithm to use There's a real chance we have a sufficiently capable quantum computer by then (IBM says they should have one by early 2030s) running Shor's algorithm which can crack ECC - what BTC, ETH, and all other cryptos are using for their signature scheme. The only projects that have even mentioned it are ETH and ALGO but are still using ECC. Vitalik even said in his blog post that ETH will wait for a quantum attack to occur, then perform a rollback which will damage the immutability of the chain. https://ethresear.ch/t/how-to-hard-fork-to-save-most-users-funds-in-a-quantum-emergency/18901 QRL is leading the small subset of coins actively addressing this problem of being quantum secure from genesis. Bitcoin cannot simply fork to solve the problem

There recovery and there is recovery against BTC value. Example: - ALGO needs to go about ~25X to reach 2019 ATHs in USD value - ALGO needs to go ~150X to reach 2019 ATHs in BTC value The opportunity cost of falling for a bullshit tech meme shitcoin sold by a scammer who kept 20% of the supply to himself is immense. This lesson could have been learned just looking back at 2017/18 shitcoins like XRP, IOTA, etc.

How about ADA, DOT, XRO, VET, Link, ALGO? This sub is not only about BTC, other people are 100% in alts. Are they bad holders?

People think meme coins attract dumb money Algorand may have the the dumbest investors in crypto. A couple of months ago there was a lot of spam threads marketing Algorand as the first shitcoin to have Python. I commented that dozens of now dead shitcoins like NXT, Stratis, NEO, ARK, Kommodo, etc all had Python. Bagholders said ALGO was undervalued and the era of price tanking was over with ALGO at $0.28 > Algorand is extremely undervalued because of terrible price action during the last three years as billions of coins entered the circulation. That era is over. https://np.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/1bp74fp/algorand_becomes_first_layer1_blockchain_to_use/kwucwtk/ Today ALGO is $0.14 and if you go back and the ALGO bagholder is in denial and has come up with conspiracy theories that some whales are suppressing ALGO prices > Almost no one sells. Check the exchanges' hot wallets. Despite the foundation selling MMs still need to borrow Algo to push the price down and keep Algo at its current 67th place. A big accumulation is happening too. Well, they want to shake out all weak hands, buy low and once the macro and news are good enough pump it up hard. https://np.reddit.com/r/algorand/comments/1dfdhy0/algorand_algo_price_recovery_looks_bleak_as/l8ifty3/ Nothing has changed since 2017. People are still falling for the same meme tech shitcoin scams and when they feel the slow and eternal rugpull, they come up with conspiracy theories about price suppression bullshit. Algorand investors now take the cake on crypto idiocy.

ALGO truly is my biggest disappointment

Mentions:#ALGO

One of the reasons why new coins do well is you don't have an army of bagholders who looking at exit prices to get off the ride. For example, look at some of the worst performers, not just from November 2023 but going back 4 years from today: June 16, 2020 - ALGO $0.24 - CRO $0.11 So basically almost every single person who invested and/or even DCA into tanking prices is at a loss. This is almost a guarantee that these coins will never recover to anywhere near ATHs with everyone holding huge losses and looking to exit at price points much lower than ATHs.

Mentions:#ALGO#CRO#DCA

If we assume coins/tokens will hit their all time high marketcaps again then I see two coins/tokens whose prices must go 10x in order to get there - ENJ and ALGO. I see others going up 3-7x to hit their all time high marketcaps. Remember, most of them will not hit their All Time High prices because since the last bull run, more coins/tokens were released into circulation.

Mentions:#ENJ#ALGO

By that logic I guess you're being paid to sit around and post on every topic about ALGO.

>Now With SOL , I have not tipped my toes on that SOL project- feel is a pump and dump. My mistake, sorry, jumped to conclusions. >You think SEC will approve an ETF on SOL before ALGO ? Lord, I hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me at this point. Still, I don't see it happening. I think regulations will help sort out this entire mess of a crypto market soon enough. Europe and MiCA regulation leading the way.

Thanks for clarifying the issue about the third party wallet. Once that fiasco happened, I never looked back on Algo . Now With SOL , I have not tipped my toes on that SOL project- feel is a pump and dump. You think SEC will approve an ETF on SOL before ALGO ?

It was a third party wallet. And you're waste deep in actual shit coins. ALGO is absolutely superior to SOL in every way, charts aside. Moonboys may disagree, but this is but a temporary speculative time in history. SOL is an embarrassing, short term blip.

Mentions:#ALGO#SOL

Me too. I bought close to ATH in 2021. I bought ADA for 2 dollars, after a lot of dca my average buy price is 1 dollar, still down a lot. Similar situation with DOT, MATTIC, ALGO, XRP, VET. Just a few coins pumped in my portfolio this year

ALGO was one of the most shilled last run. Everyone hates losing money.

Mentions:#ALGO

Sell all of your ALGO right now and buy when it bottoms out in the next 3 months.

Mentions:#ALGO

It's much easier to find an alt with such a chart compared to one in the green, see ATOM/FTM/ALGO and so on and so on 

This subreddit hates ALGO though.

Mentions:#ALGO

Almost all are except the newer ones like FET. Even the ones that pumped in the last months are down a lot like SOL. Fortunately, I sold lots of my coins at the last swing up and I think its a good idea to buy back. Neither ADA, ALGO, nor MATIC will disappear. Also eyeing AVAX, AGIX, SOL, FET, but they are currently too expensive in my opinion. They need to lose much more.

I am bagging ADA, ALGO, (CHZ), MATIC. Isn't it always the same, when people say it's dead it gets a sudden revival?

Me too. I'm not checking charts anymore. I dca little bit, but only monthly not weekly. My poryfolio is down and it's my mistake - I underestimated meme coins. Instead of buying MATTIC, ALGO and DOT I should have been loading PEPE. I don't expect anything good in the short term, I just hope to at least break even in 2025

He should accept all of the beaten down alts. Then start talking about amazing utility and interesting possibilities beyond BTC’s store of value. Campaign contribution limit of $3,300 is approximately 20K ALGO. This was $65,600 at ATH($3.28).

Yeah fair point and thanks for your thoughts. Seems like coins with utility don't hold the same gains as memecoins can, but such a gamble. I have some good ones this cycle (ROSE and LRS) and some old ones too (ALGO, VET), but my memecoin just hit the 100 mil which is why I really asked though this post didn't get much traction.

If you were investing in 2020 I'd say great! lol. You don't have Solana, ETH, AVAX, Arbitrum etc.??? Link is great for long term investment, I always purchse during the bear but ADA, DOT and ALGO are all dead. Look at their chain activity, no one is building on them which means they're not making money. I get it, they all have great tech, and great stories but this is crypto. When the bear hits everything is going to fall 90%, your best bet is to maximize your profits but looking at what ppl are actually using and talking about

Update, I sold NOTCOIN to re-distribute the investment into HBAR, ADA, DOT, LINK, ALGO, and RNDR

> matic would suffer from the overcrowded competition Yeh, L2's are going to beat the sidechains. But its also interesting, governance tokens with vesting periods, ARB, OP and STRK give me "ALGO" type vibes. Whereas, MATIC, is atleast used for gas. That said, I intend on exiting that this cycle too, and plan on becoming 99% BTC/ETH. There are far more accessible and safe options for ETH staking now too.

I think the following qualify as blue chip: BTC ETH XRP XLM LINK ADA LTC Cryptos like HBAR or ALGO have the potential to make it there.

All of you pro-crypto democrats must be teetering on the edge of suicide. It’s the democrats in the U.S house and senate that have been the biggest roadblocks to crypto adoption/fact. Elizabeth Warren. Brad Sherman. Sherrod Brown. Maxine Waters. Sean Casten. Gary Gensler at the SEC. Trump has said in the past that he wasn’t a fan of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and that’s because BTC is inefficient and there is a lot of crypto garbage out there. What Trump means to say is that he is pro ISO 20022 coins. (XRP, ALGO, XLM, XDC, HBAR and a few others). And don’t start the “Jay Clayton was a Trump appointment and sued Ripple on his last day in office” argument. Because most politicians are scumbags. And it was no skin off Clayton’s nose to file a law suit on his last day. He wasn’t going to be in the job that Gensler took over. It was Gensler’s job to try and thwart Ripple’s progress. Which he did. But now that case is coming to a final resolution. Gensler is about to be gone. Trump is about to be President again. Crypto is at the heart of these presidential campaigns and the democrats are losing the argument. You democrats are on the wrong side of history on this issue (along with countless other issues). So what do you love more? Crypto? Or Elizabeth Warren?

They should hire some memecoiners for Marketing. It's somewhat ridiculous, but also understandable that there are several memes that do better in terms of appreciation than ALGO.

#Algorand Pro-Arguments Below is a Algorand pro-argument written by CreepToeCurrentSea. > Algorand is an open-source, decentralized cryptocurrency and smart contract platform founded by Silvio Micali on 2017. It operates through a Proof of Stake variation called the Pure Proof of Stake. It officially launched it's main network on 2019. It's native token is called ALGO. Algorand is composed of a company and a foundation. The company functions on the core development of the protocol whereas the foundation oversees award funding, cryptographic research, on-chain governance, and decentralization of the Algorand network including nodes. > > # PROs > > **The Founders** > > * The creators/founders of a network/protocol are one of the most important factors influencing its future. The more experience they have in the field, the more likely a project will succeed. Enter Algorand's founders, Silvio Micali and Jing Chen. Micali is an Italian computer scientist and professor at MIT. He is best known for his early work on public-key cryptosystems, pseudorandom functions, digital signatures, oblivious transfer, secure multiparty computation, and is one of the co-inventors of zero-knowledge proofs. Chen is Algorand Inc.'s Chief Scientist and Head of Theory Research. Game theory, mechanism design, distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and algorithms are among her research interests. She is a member of the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University. She is also associated with the Department of Economics and the Center for Game Theory in Economics. This is just a summary of their experiences, and it demonstrates how serious they are about finding a solution to the blockchain trillemma while also improving the Algorand protocol's unique strengths. > > **The Protocol** > > * As indicated previously in the introduction, Algorand employs PPoS, a variant of the PoS algorithm in which validators of the network are not rewarded and are not at risk of being slashed. It becomes hard for the minority to cheat, and cheating the system would be illogical for the majority because it would devalue their assets. There is also no token locking, thus a user's tokens are always available. Based on this rationale, regardless of the amount of alleged bad actors in the system, it would result in a loss for them while keeping the network safe. > > **Security** > > * Security is essential for a network to run efficiently, safeguard digital assets, and build confidence with other companies/entities. Without this, a network will eventually fail or, worse, be hacked. Algorand divides security into three levels: user security, consensus security, and partition security. > * User-Level Security is primarily concerned with the security of a user's stake. Users will be given a spending key as well as a participation key. The Spending key will be used to sign transactions and spend stakes, whilst the Participation key will be used to propose and confirm blocks. Both these keys are separated with the Participation key being secret and can be stored in cold storage. > * Consensus-Level Security focuses on preventing bad actors from corrupting the network by seizing control of block generation. This is accomplished through the secret and random selection of users to participate in the certification of blocks. The bad actor will be unable to determine which user will generate the block, and by the time the bad actor does, the action will have already been completed. > * Partition-Level Security increases resistance to network partition attacks. The goal of bad actors who do this is to double-spend their money in the network by creating a contradiction of transactions, completely asynchronous the network, and have complete control over who receives which messages and when. This does not happen in the Algorand network because the bad actor cannot deceive the users in the same round with this strategy because the Algorand blockchain will never fork, and all transactions in the network are final. > > **Scalability** > > * Algorand utilises Pure Proof of Stake (PPoS) consensus, in which network validators are not rewarded and are not at risk of being slashed. In contrast to Bitcoin's Proof of Work model, it will not require network participants solving cryptographic puzzles for the production/validation of blocks, resulting in less computation waste. A user only needs to generate and verify signatures and count operations, with the cost based solely on the number of selected users for each block, which is constant and unaffected by the overall network size. As a result, the network would be able to serve millions of users while maintaining a higher TPS and lower computation cost. > > > **Crypto Rating** > > * Algorand received a 2 out of 5 rating from the Crypto Rating Council (CRC) in its Securities Framework Asset Ratings. When an asset appears to have many characteristics that are consistent with the Howey-test factors, it receives a score of 5. When an asset appears to have few characteristics that are consistent with the Howey-test factors, it receives a score of 1. Based on this rating, the SEC will be less likely to rule Algorand as a security. It also helps that both the foundation and the company, Algorand, are committed to decentralized development. > > *Sources:* > [*https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algorand*](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algorand) > [*https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.1607.01341*](https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.1607.01341) > [*https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silvio\_Micali*](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silvio_Micali) > [*https://www3.cs.stonybrook.edu\/\~jingchen/*](https://www3.cs.stonybrook.edu\/~jingchen/) > [*https://www.algorand.com/technology/technical-advantages*](https://www.algorand.com/technology/technical-advantages) > [*https://messari.io/asset/algorand/profile/technology*](https://messari.io/asset/algorand/profile/technology) > [*https://www.algorand.com/technology/security*](https://www.algorand.com/technology/security) > [*https://www.algorand.com/technology/scalability*](https://www.algorand.com/technology/scalability) > [*https://www.cryptoratingcouncil.com/asset-ratings*](https://www.cryptoratingcouncil.com/asset-ratings) ***** Would you like to learn more?

There’s never been a harder inverse r/CC than ALGO

I don’t think you’ll regret some mid caps like RNDR, ALGO, TNSR, TIA

>Comparing L1 performance, without discussing the centralization of consensus, centralization of development, and overall security model is entirely useless. Of course, 100% agree, no brainer. But how would you pack that week long discussion into less than 60 seconds?? The ad was a funny poke at the fact that Algorand provably and demonstrably runs circles around the depicted competitors ranked in the top 10 by MC. By the way, ALGO consensus is 100% decentralized and that's irrefutable and not argued by anyone in honest conversation. Centralization aspect lies solely with the relays and original tokenomics. And yeah, there should be serious honest & objective compare and contrast discussion about tech, top to bottom. You probably don't realize how overlooked or purposely excluded Algorand is by competitors or "journalists" with their cherry picked misleading data. Algorand is effectively saying HEY LOOK OVER HERE, and rightly so. It has some of the very best tech in the game but gets ignored or dogged in favor of shit that doesn't work well but has a shit ton more liquidity. >L1 scaling, which is complete nonsense. Fine, harp on scaling, but guess what? Algorand has proven to not break a sweat with more valid sustained tps than all three of those chains. It's not speculation or theoretical, it's proven. (And that proof/load testing was initiated entirely by a community member/dev using donated ALGO for the tx fees.) I'm not sure why you can't applaud advancement in blockchain. We should exhaust the L1 before relying on L2s, and ALGO is certainly one of the strongest L1s and undeniably more solid than BTC/ETH/SOL. At any rate, please satisfy your skepticism by researching Algorand yourself. Start with Silvio Micali and work forward to today and the 2024 road map.

>The statement that Algorand Foundation or AT “brags” tells me a lot about you. You’re on a mission to destroy or unable to get over your losses. Or maybe price is all you really care about which yeah no judgement here whatsoever. I'm not on any mission to destroy nor do I have any losses. You deducted that from a single word I used? I really don't think that word was in any way offensive. I'm just discussing things and you are, for some reason, getting offended by what I say and shifting your tone to passive-aggressive while not properly addressing any of my arguments. Should I apologize for offending you by giving my opinion on something? >The one thing I saw in your post was “bear market” and that is the biggest factor explaining the presumption or characterization that the tide turned on Algorand. So, according to you, Algorand Founation and Algorand Inc making a lot of bad moves from committing $100M to Drone Racing League, failing to vest tokens they OTC sold to 3AC, losing $35M on Hodlnaut, failing to grow the ecosystem which eventually led to the majority of VCs selling their $ALGO and leaving the blockchain for good didn't have any effect on where Algorand is today? You think the bear market is the reason why ALGO recently printed a fresh all time lows on both ALGO/BTC and ALGO/ETH (one year into the bull market) is exclusively because of the bear market and not because of people losing trust in organisations behind Algorand? >Every enterprise has growing pains and makes mistakes. There are too many fantastic new partnerships and products in the Algosphere to ignore now. Look forward! You can call them growing pains and mistakes, but it still doesn't change the fact that a lot of people left when they realized the extent of damage they did. >I don’t and haven’t speculated on Algorand. I treat my investment in Algorand no differently than any of my other long-term investments. Sure I’ll sell some if it pumps and does multiples of my average cost of $0.3. But I will be keeping bags and more importantly sharing in its development for the long haul. Okay, I think we are at the root of the issue here. You're a holder so you'll naturally be biased in your interpretation of what I wrote.

You're a proven Algo hater time and time again yourself, and OP has brought the bullshit accusations countless times. The obsession is unbelievable. They petitioned the meta sub to officially ban Algorand because of these bizarre suspicions and accusations. What's worse, they don't flinch at the endless barrage of ETH or SOL propaganda. Somehow that stuff is fine. Did you know, according to them, I have a ton of alts and I'm a paid shill! Why? Because I hold ALGO, support Algorand, and argue facts. You guys keep allowing that nonsense, despite a very long list of reasons why ALGO is obviously legit AF.

I can just see Chat GPT shilling ADA, DOT, ATOM and ALGO.

The joke’s on them. ALGO is one of the worst performing coins in all of crypto over the last several years. ALGO bros dismissively shat on every SOL post and comment since SOL was under $10. SOL is up 20x since then, and **ALGO is only up like 12% in that same time lol**. 2000% vs 12%. Pathetic. ALGO bros are broke and desperate, and now they’re scrambling. Not a single person on CT is talking about ALGO. Reddit is literally all they have.

Interviewed for the marketing role at Algorand and I declined after the first round since that team is delulu. Still held on to my ALGO bag

LOL. Maybe they all look alike? That's Scaramucci. It's not proving ALGO isn't a scam. It's illustrating it works better than the stuff with the crazy high market caps.

I was thinking something like: ADA/SOL/XRP/ETH/ALGO ETF

It's a single minute with a comedic slant. It's not going to address everyone and everything. >Crypto people might care but it’s showing a situation which isn’t reality so not really. Might not exactly be reality YET, but it is making the point. If we created different lines of people with QR codes primed for transactions, ALGO's line would absolutely move much faster than BTC, ETH, & SOL. Generally speaking and not necessarily aiming this at you, but I gotta say, the haters have embarrassed themselves all over the internet today. Reactions have been very revealing and entertaining. The butthurt attacks in this thread are tame in comparison. Best part is the concept was suggested by a community member, one of us, and people known in the community were in the video along with the Algo foundation CTO. No idea the cost involved, but gotta be pretty cheap for the end result.

Nano already solved this a long time ago, and still cheaper and faster than ALGO today.

I like to think we're too busy actually using crypto to be blathering about the 24hr price chart of ALGO.

I don't hold any ALGO and I will critique a few aspects of the project, but this is funny as fuck. It's funny because all the butthurt maxis who's shitty blockchains can't do fuck, are getting triggered. More please.

>5 BILLION increase in circulating supply First, it's important to understand sources like CMC severely under reported ALGO circulating supply until ~2021 Q4, and while corrections were made, they weren't retroactive, so supply data is severely inaccurate to this day when looking at yesteryear(s) versus today and the supply chart over time. https://forum.algorand.org/t/aligning-algo-circulating-supply-metrics-for-algorand-ecosystem/4230 But the increase in circulating supply was still nuts, indeed. Why did that crazy, ridiculous inflation happen? Well... "Accelerated vesting" was driven algorithmically using a formula based on the rolling average of price action as disclosed transparently in the tokenomics. The expectation was it'd take a couple years, but demand for ALGO in 2021 resulted in supply being added to circulation much faster. The AF was guilty of grossly underestimating the demand for ALGO, and so were investors. Every single one of us had access to the tokenomics, and anyone capable of due diligence was aware of circulating supply increasing. Many of us watched it on chain in real time. And some of us have blamed the foundation for the impact, because people don't want to be accountable for their own decisions. It's always someone else's fault. Whereas people like me have become more bullish while lowering average cost. But, here we are today with over 80% in circulation and the rest to be released through quarterly governance rewards and/or participation node incentive rewards. Between now and 2030. Which translates to very low inflation dropping as we get closer to 2030 and some of the BEST TOKENOMICS in crypto and certainly better than most of the top 10 chains by MC. >2 BILLION gifted by scammer Silvio Micali himself which probably hasn't been all dumped yet, Calling Silvio Micali a scammer takes all credibility from your ridiculous anti-Algorand rant which is chalked full of misinformation. 2 billion went to Algorand Technologies (aka Inc.) for development and cost of operations. Again, fully disclosed in the tokenomics. You don't like it, you don't appreciate the intention, you think it's a SCAM, you don't invest. >- 0 BILLION actual Demand What? >- Money used to buy FIFA sponsorship, racing sponsorship, dead file sharing companies Napster, LimerWire, etc FIFA sponsorship was withdrawn/downgraded. Algorand is a technical partner chosen by FIFA, and they didn't spend money. But yes, questionable investments have been made by the foundation. Napster was acquired, who knows what they're doing with it if anything. Limewire was bs NFT crap and Limewire is only using the Limewire name while already pivoting to other chains to milk liquidity. Racing, DRL, Sailing, Bike charities, all worth a mighty flinch. Worth mentioning most of which was done by previous foundation leadership, though, and the britches have been considerably tightened while they've cut fat and increased revenue in impressive manner. The job of the foundation is to invest in the ecosystem and drive adoption. Of course, it's debatable how well they've done the job, but personnel and timeline matters for context instead of blanket cherry picked FUD.
