Article

Critics of Algorand assert the assumption of 2/3 honest nodes may not be fulfilled if honest nodes simply go offline without a monetary incentive to stay online; this is known as the lazy validator problem. Other decentralized systems have maintained network integrity without financial incentives like BitTorrent, and some aspects of Bitcoin and some non-mining aspects of Bitcoin. Given the potential monetary incentive for adversarial nodes, the robustness of non-incentive based blockchains remains an open question.

Security requires a 2/3 honest majority of online nodes.

Security assumes an honest majority of 2/3 of online nodes. The protocol also makes a message propagation assumption whereby all messages reach honest users in a timely fashion.
