Algorand is a new cryptocurrency utilizing a “Byzantine Agreement on Steroids” consensus protocol that proposes a solution for blockchain scalability, long transaction confirmation times, and the high energy consumption with Proof-of-Work (PoW) blockchains.
Binance will start staking their Algorand (ALGO) cold and hot wallets, starting from July 27, 2019 and will automatically airdrop staking rewards monthly to ALGO holders. An additional 220,000 ALGO from prior staking activities will also be distributed to ALGO holders. To qualify for staking rewards simply hold a minimum of 2 ALGO in your Binance wallet and receive free ALGO based on the total staking rewards by Binance. Staking is done automatically by Binance, so there’s no manual action required.
