14:00 Longevity and Track Record Silvio started Algorand in 2017 with the goal of improving Bitcoin’s underlying decentralized ledger technology Within two years of starting work on Algorand, the project would raise its first $4 million seed round in February of 2019, quickly followed by $62 million raised in an ALGO Dutch auction run on Algorand’s own PPOS blockchain
Algorand’s PPOS blockchain saw its mainnet launch in June of 2019

15:00 Price Prediction – Token Supply
Max Supply Cap of Supply Cap 9,979,490,657 tokens
Currently 1.04BN have already entered the market meaning 150M+ will be added to the market thru rewards, staking etc 15% inflation

16:00 Price Prediction – Token Supply
ICO at $3
Hit $1.86 8 Feb and since then has stayed in a range
Now at 200 DMA which could prove to be strong support
Currently 0.94c

16:05 10 Price Models
People love to model ALGO
Some conservative numbers
Some crazy numbers
2030 – $167 = 1.7 Trillion
Price Prediction Coin Price Forecasts 2021-2032

16:55 10 Price Prediction Models w/o Crazy Forecasts
2021 y/e avg 3.30
2025 y/e avg $5
2030 y/e $4 which makes sense when you consider coin inflation.
$4 = $40 BN market cap

17:00 IA Prediction
Range based on growth rates and relative market caps
Also takes into account token inflation adding 150M token per year
Range from $1.89 y/e 2021 to $4.56 in 2025 to $5.42 in 2030
2030 Market Cap approx $50BN ie 17x higher but remember dilution
The token inflation is what drives these numbers down
IA Algorand Prediction 2021-2030

17:20 Risks The Algo distribution process produces excessive dilution and inflation effects that may impair the pricing stability of the tokens ie 9 billion tokens to be released
Ethereum EIP 1559
Lack of focus – they seem to be going after too much eg vaccines, stablecoins, exchanges, real estate, NFTs etc
They need more Dapps

Many Positives Also
Algorand helps developers build quality decentralized applications.
It can be used to develop highly scalable DeFi projects, institutional finance products, and government CBDC projects
Algorand is used by hundreds of companies like Circle, IDEX, Republic, and Tether
Future is bright if they can keep momentum going
I see it merely as a speculative asset – buy low sell high but not a long term keeper due to the token inflation
