Algorand is an extremely promising consensus protocol -- Could Bitcoin be configured to use Algorand?



You can't change Bitcoin's consensus algorithm. If you do, and you don't convince literally everyone to do the same thing, you'll end up with a fork in the chain. At best, that means you won't see any new blocks anymore. At worst, you'll end up with two active chains, and a split currency.
