Algorand is a scalable, secure, and decentralized blockchain platform that uses a pure proof-of-stake (PPoS) consensus mechanism to ensure fast transactions and energy efficiency.
Key differences between Algorand and EVM data.
Algorand assets, also known as Algorand Standard Assets (ASAs), are digital tokens or assets created and managed on the Algorand blockchain.
Like ERC20 tokens, Algorand assets can represent a variety of real-world or digital goods, such as:
- Utility tokens
- Security tokens
- Non-fungible tokens (NFTs)
- Real estate tokens
- Tokenized stocks or commodities
Algorand Standard Assets IDS
To standardize and unify the data returned by our API, ASAs information can be fetched through the
One of the differences between ASAs and ERC20's is that Algorand Standard Assets are defined by a numerical asset id and not by an Ethereum address.
For example 31566704 is the asset ID for USDC on the Algorand blockchain. To standardize datatypes through our API we return the asset ID as a string: "31566704".
Note that the algorand address format is different from the Ethereum addresses. To unify our API all Algorand addresses are lowercased.
We currently support the main Algorand dexes: Algofi, TinymanV1 and TinymanV2.
