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 - If Money Moved Like Email

Stellar is an open source, distributed blockchain network of payment infrastructures designed to globally connect people, payment systems, and banks. Its native, digital currency, Lumens (XLM), enables multi-currency and liquid, multi-asset transactions. Stellar operates as the Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP). The SCP differs from the more well known Bitcoin proof of work and Ethereum (soon-to-be) proof of stake protocols. The database ledger is updated via consensus and no mining is involved. The SCP achieves consensus through a modified Byzantine agreement, the Federated Byzantine Agreement, and broadcasts through a global ledger. The total supply of XLM is 104.40B with a circulating supply of 18.43B XLM and annual inflation rate of 1%. Launched in 2014 by Jed McCaleb, the co-founder of Ripple, and Joyce Kim, a former attorney and venture capitalist. McCaleb and Kim were both instrumental in the founding of Ripple and used their expertise to found the Stellar Development Foundation. Originally a fork of the Ripple, the Stellar protocol features an entirely re-written codebase, with key contributions from computer scientist and Stanford Professor David Mazières. The SDF have key partnerships with companies such as IBM with the Stellar blockchain forming the financial rails for World Wire - a fintech, global cross-border enterprise solution by IBM for banks, central banks and businesses.
