Algorand Smart Contracts (ASC1) operate at over 1,000TPS and are final in under 5 seconds which is currently impossible on legacy platforms.
Forks - on PoW protocols like Bitcoin - are an unwelcome source of uncertainty and delay. Although Forks are necessary to solve simultaneous requests, or network partitions on a PoW protocol, if a transfer made in the latest block, one cannot immediately consider oneself paid.
The Algorand blockchain never forks. Two blocks can never be added to the chain at once because only one block can have the required threshold of committee votes. Accordingly, all transactions are final in Algorand.
