An open network for storing and moving money
Stellar is an open source network for currencies and payments. Stellar is the network, while Lumen is the token that was built on the network. Stellar aims to bridge the gap between cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies by combining the best features of the two; decentralization and high transfer speed of cryptocurrencies, and wide adoption of fiat. Stellar makes borderless transfer easier with high speed and low cost, but at the same time still keeping it decentralized and transparent. Stellar network is secured by using Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP), which consists of four main properties; decentralized control, low latency, flexible trust, and asymptotic security.
