Old and new Nxt community members unite to refute Algorand's false claims of being the first pure proof-of-stake blockchain
Last week old and new Nxt members once again united to protect the rightful place of Nxt in the blockchain history as the first pure proof-of-stake platform - as we all know, Nxt launched back in November 2013 bringing a significant technical innovation part of which was the pure proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. Although this is a historical fact, another cryptocurrency project (Algorand) has decided to "use" the same term describing their own technology. This has not gone unnoticed by both Nxt community and the Jelurida team. Core developer Lior Yaffe felt compelled to set the record straight and posted a Twitter thread on the subject. Immediately his initiative was supported not only by our community members but also by all crypto veterans who have witnessed these events and by many crypto influencers such as Ivan on Tech, Nick Cote, Bitlord, Wendy O and many others. Crypto media also reflected on the issue with CoinCodex, Cointelegraph and iHodl covering the subject. We are very grateful for the enormous support we received and we hope that Algorand will respect the facts and stop trying to mislead the users and misrepresent itself as "the first pure PoS blockchain" although no comment from their side has been made so far.
