Who Are the Founders of Algorand?
Silvio Micali is a professor of computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the founder of Algorand.

This makes him one of the foremost creators of crypto in the world.
What Makes Algorand Unique?
Algorand was invented to speed up transactions and improve efficiency, in response to the slow transaction times of Bitcoin and other blockchains. This is designed so that there are lower transaction fees, as well as no mining (like Bitcoin’s energy-intensive process), as it is based on a permission less pure proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain protocol.

Algorand’s Compatibility with Ethereum
On Feb. 17, 2022, the Algorand Foundation announced a $10M grant to Applied Blockchain to develop the London Bridge, a trustless bridge that will bring Ethereum compatibility to the blockchain. It has struggled to attract liquidity to its ecosystem, despite promising low cost transactions, low latency and high scalability. Having a bridge to Ethereum, which currently has the most robust DApp ecosystem, would allow The to connect to these applications and attract more liquidity. In the long-term, the Foundation aims to have verification of other chains be performed on The smart contracts, by incorporating state proofs in the form of Compact Certificates into the Consensus. The foundation’s goal is to eventually solidify the DeFi ecosystem on Algorand.
