Stellar (XLM) is a decentralized network created in 2014 by The Stellar Development Foundation to connect financial systems and facilitate transactions. It uses its native digital currency, XLM or Lumens, as an intermediate currency and payment protocol. The platform aims to provide low-cost, quick access to financial systems and serves as a decentralized exchange and marketplace.


To fully own Stellar, open a new Coin Wallet account. Coin Wallet is a software wallet that only stores the private key on your device. It enables you to buy, sell, exchange, receive, and store XLM.
