Stellar Lumens (XLM)

Stellar is an open platform designed to connect banks, payment systems, and individual users. The goal of Stellar is to make money movements as efficient as email exchanges. It aims to provide more access to individual users, lower the costs for banks, and help businesses generate more revenue. The native Stellar tokens, known as Lumens (XLM), perform two main functions. First, they operate as security tokens, preventing malicious DoS attacks. Second, they are designed to facilitate multicurrency transactions, functioning as a bridge between currency pairs for which there is no large direct market. Towards the end of Q2 of 2017, Lumens started generating significant interest among investors, with their value and potential uses yet to be widely recognized.
