To make appropriate peers comparison we gauged the ALGO (Algorand) token with 2100NEWS Digital Assets 100 Large Cap Index (NWSL100). Looking at the chart below, at the top we can see the original ALGO price, in the middle of the chart is ALGO vs. NWSL100, at the bottom of the chart are NWSL100 and correlation between ALGO and NWSL100. On average (EMA25 – green area graph), the relationship between ALGO and NWSL100 has remained similar from June for nearly three months, meaning it declined vs. NWSL100. However, the correlation graph gives us an explanation that ALGO was moving in the same direction as the NWSL100 (positive correlation). So,  ALGO has been a good representative of the NWSL100 index.
