March 10th, 2021 - In response to feedback from the Algorand community, the Algorand Foundation worked with leading research websites (e.g. Messari, CoinMarketCap and CoinGecko) to improve the accuracy and timeliness of their circulating and reported supply metrics for the Algo.
We were seeing their quoted figures under-calling circulating and liquid supply by ~10% or greater. To achieve significantly improved accuracy, we have provided these research sites with a live endpoint that enables them to share consistent real-time data on supply of the Algo.
It is important to note that while the reported supply numbers increased after implementing these endpoints, this reflects only an improvement in reporting accuracy and not an injection of tokens into supply.
