Algorand Launches Partner Program To Accelerate Enterprise Blockchain AdoptionNovember 23, 2020
Blockchain startup Algorand has launched a new partner program designed to accelerate development and adoption of blockchain-powered products and services.
Founded by MIT professor and Turing Award winner Silvio Micali, Algorand is the inventor of an open-source, pure proof-of-stake blockchain protocol that enables the development of scalable blockchain-native solutions for real-world use cases. The company is powering the DeFi evolution by enabling the creation and exchange of value, building new financial tools and services, bringing assets on-chain and providing responsible privacy models.
The Algorand Partner Program (APP) is designed to build and curate a partner ecosystem that enables and delivers Algorand-based products to market faster, easier, and with end users in mind. Program participants can differentiate their services and expand their business in the private and public sector with organizations at different stages of their blockchain journey: from those exploring blockchain’s potential to those already working on blockchain projects.
“As organizations, central banks, and governments begin to leverage blockchain to transform the way they create value and facilitate economic exchange the demands to provide organizations with support, resources and professional services are increasing exponentially,” said W. Sean Ford, COO of Algorand. “From DeFi startups to traditional financial institutions across a variety of sectors and geographies, Algorand’s Partner Program will help companies navigate their path to building enduring value through blockchain adoption.”
The initial list of companies accepted in the APP includes Applied Blockchain, Rocket Insights, Mentat Innovations, BLOCKCHAIN ITALIA.io, Nona Digital, Emali, Bluemi, Cartan, IntellectEU, Looptribe, Reach and Koibanx. Algorand said that some of the APP participants, such as Applied Blockchain and IntellectEU, have recently introduced new applications built with Algorand technology.
“We have been working with the Algorand team for almost a year on a number of initiatives, and we have found them to be one of the most professional teams in our field,” said Adi Ben-Ari, Founder and CEO of Applied Blockchain. “We look forward to deeper collaboration through the partner program, making it easier to define a clear track to building success for our company and our clients on blockchain.”
According to Algorand, the program will be expanded in the future to add more partners globally to facilitate integrations with enterprise, governments, and financial institutions that leverage Algorand blockchain. This will include select consulting firms, system integrators, software development firms, infrastructure and complementary service providers, which provide the capabilities to enable and ensure success of Algorand’s adoption.
