Assets

Assets issued on Algorand are incredibly fast and secure, as they are built directly into Algorand's Layer-1.

Easy, simple, and secure asset issuance and management for developers and enterprise.

Native control over assets for permissions, compliance, and regulatory requirements: Freeze and Clawback assets, include KYC/AML checkpoints, revoke permissions, among other things.

Smart Contracts

Algorand Smart Contracts (ASC) are faster, more secure and scalable.

ASCs are written in an assembly-like language that is safer to use.

Algorand's programming languages, TEAL and Clarity, are decidable with low complexity. What you want it to do is what it will do.

Cost and risks are lowered while having instant settlement of these contracts, taking full advantage of Algorand's speed.

Atomic Swaps

Algorand enables a secure way to simultaneously transfer a number of assets among a number of parties.

No need for escrow or reliance on hash time-locked contracts.

Novel execution of complex transfers for all types of settlements that is instant and smooth.

Co-Chain Technology

Algorand supports a hybrid model of private side-chains, known as Co-Chains, that can natively interoperate with the public blockchain.

Co-Chains can interact and transact with other Co-Chains and the public blockchain.

Ideal for institutional use cases.
