Why consider a hardware wallet when buying crypto
A Algorand wallet helps you protect your private key, not storing your Algorand. If you are fairly new to cryptocurrencies you might still be struggling with the concept of private key and why it’s so important. Perhaps you just get into cryptocurrency by purchasing coins on an exchange platform but didn’t even realize that they hold the private keys to your cryptocurrency.
When you own cryptocurrencies, what you really own is a private key, a critical piece of information used to authorize outgoing transactions on the blockchain network. Holding the private keys gives you access to your crypto, like holding a pin code to your debit card; in short it gives you access to your funds.
« If you are keeping your crypto assets on an exchange, you are entrusting a third party with these private keys and mandating them to serve as a safeguard. »
Being a crypto investor requires taking security seriously and owning your private keys gives you much more power and control. The main principle behind hardware wallets is to provide full isolation between the private keys and your easy-to-hack computer or smartphone. The only people you can trust for storing your crypto assets is yourself.
What is Algorand (ALGO) ?
Algorand is an open source blockchain designed by Turing Award winner and MIT professor Silvio Micali. It launched in June 2019. Algorand (ALGO) aims to achieve all three challenges of blockchains today: security, scalability, and decentralization.
In Algorand’s consensus algorithm, called Pure Proof-of-Stake (PoS), the network ties its security to the honesty of the majority. Algorand makes any dishonesty impossible by a minority so any cheating by the majority would be foolish.
The consensus mechanism ensures full participation, protection, and speed within a truly decentralized network. With blocks finalized in seconds, Algorand’s transaction throughput is on par with large payment and financial networks.
