Stellar is a powerful platform for foreign exchange transactions operating in real-time; besides, it has a number of features like Smart Contracts, etc. expands access to low-cost financial services to fight poverty and maximize individual potential; it's the platform connecting banks and financial institutions, payment systems, and people. The platform allows the users to "Integrate to move money quickly, reliably, and at almost no cost". It was founded in early 2014 by Jed McCaleb (the original developer of the infamous MtGox exchange) and Joyce Kim (a former lawyer) as a branch of the Ripple system. At first, Stellar worked on the eponymous Protocol. Once its own open-source Protocol Stellar was launched in November 2015, the internal coin – Stellar Lumens (XLM) was introduced.

The Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP) provides a way to reach consensus without relying on a closed system to accurately record financial transactions. It has interesting technical features, different from other consensus mechanisms and is built around four key principles: decentralized control, low latency, flexible trust, and asymptotic security. The project received a lot of media attention since the first release; in October 2017 the company announced the cooperation with IBM. Some successful blockchain startups conduced ICOs at the Stellar Platform; it has some advantages over Ethereum and other Smart Contract platforms. It's faster and significantly cheaper to issue tokens comparing with Ethereum.
