Stellar is an open-source, distributed payments infrastructure. It is a leapfrog technology that connects people, payment systems, and banks with a focus on the developing world. It lets you facilitate multi-currency and asset transactions quickly, reliably, and for a fraction of a penny by using a crypto-asset called Lumens (XLM) as a bridge. Stellar's basic operation is similar to that of most decentralized payment technologies. It runs a network of decentralized servers with a distributed ledger that is updated every 2 to 5 seconds among all nodes. The most prominent distinguishing factor between Stellar and bitcoin is its consensus protocol. Stellar’s consensus protocol does not rely on the entire miner network to approve transactions. Instead, it uses the Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA) algorithm, which enables faster processing of transactions. This is because it uses quorum slices (or a portion of the network) to approve and validate a transaction. Each node in the Stellar network chooses another set of “trustworthy” nodes. Once a transaction is approved by all nodes within this set, then it is considered approved. The shortened process has made Stellar's network extremely fast and it is said to process as many as 1,000 network operations per second.

Stellar Rating Update

Despite collaboration with IBM and Stronghold, Stellar is in a weak position in terms of partnerships compared to Ripple, its major competitor. In addition, according to its roadmap published in early 2018, Stellar has made some slow progress. In conclusion, TokenInsight downgraded Stellar from BBB to BB, with a stable outlook.

TokenGazer [Stellar] Rating: 4.0, Indicator Trend: Underperform | Updated November 23, 2018

The Stellar project aims to create an open source distributed payment system that will serve as a bridge between global users, payments and banks, enabling users to quickly and reliably trade with different currencies and assets, and in the process reduce transaction costs and increase transaction speed. TokenGazer considers that the XLM valuation is severely high in all three valuation models. Although the sharpe ratio is the highest in the industry in the past year, there is still speculation and speculation in the short term, but there may be significant corrections in the future.
Crypto Briefing

Stellar DARE (Digital Asset Report & Evaluation)

The Digital Asset Report and Evaluation (DARE) is a standardized, dynamic approach to evaluating blockchain-based projects and identifying value in the associated crypto-assets. The report is the result of an exhaustive research and analysis process based on seven fundamental factors. Based on a weighted grading, a verdict and letter grade conclude each report, which is followed up with periodic updates. The analysis, verdict and accompanying grade reflect our opinion on the long-term value prospects of a given token based on the current state of project development and indicators of future commercial viability. As a publication focused on assessing the long-term value and associated risks of a token project, DARE is not a short-term buy/sell indicator. Initiation reports provide readers a comprehensive analysis of the project fundamentals. The details include a project summary, introduction, presentation and analysis of seven key project fundamentals, concluding with a grade and final verdict derived from our weighted evaluation system. Each token or cryptocurrency will undergo a sequential reevaluation, with Update reports presenting the latest, most relevant analysis on a quarterly basis. The content contained in the update report is confined to analysis of changes in project fundamentals that influence the long-term value prospects of the token or cryptocurrency. Methodology We consider the project-asset paradigm from seven key angles: market opportunity, underlying technology, ecosystem development, token economics, core team, and roadmap progress. The evaluation examines the current state of the project, how it relates to the initially stated goals, and provides an analysis to approximate an accurate outlook for the future. The evaluation process utilizes a proprietary scoring system comprised of weighted variables based on the follow project fundamentals.
