The Algorand Foundation announced today the successful completion of its inaugural Algo auction, marking the launch of the Algorand platform and its original economic model that uses a unique combination of consensus-driven blockchain technology and economic incentives to ensure absolute fairness and broad participation in a new Borderless Economy.
