What is Stellar?

The open source decentralized protocol Stellar ( XLM ) makes it possible to transfer cryptocurrencies to fiat and vice versa. In order to, in other words, allow easy, instant and secure cross-border transactions between any pair of currencies. The development of this protocol is supported by a non-profit organization called the Stellar Development Foundation. Its monetary unit is called Lumen, and it is the native cryptoactive of this network.

This blockchain, unlike that of Bitcoin , is not designed to be used as a means of direct payment. Rather it is designed to be an intermediary in currency conversion. In this sense, it seeks to transform itself into a system that competes directly with Ripple (XRP). Simultaneously, Lumen is a non-minable cryptocurrency, and 100 billion tokens were invented in its early days. These tokens remain in the hands of the Stellar Development Foundation. This foundation is tasked with distributing 95% of the tokens. Divided between; random people (50%), ecosystem organizations or companies (25%), Bitcoin or Ripple holders (20%). The remaining 5% is reserved to conserve its operating costs and continue its development.

Beginnings of the Stellar Plan

The beginnings of this journey take us to Jed McCaleb, founder of the Mt. Gox exchange and co-founder of Ripple. He, with the jurist Joyce Kim, launched the plan in 2014. Shortly after, the Stellar Development Foundation was founded, in collaboration with Patrick Collison. Collinson is the CEO of Stripe, a company that runs an electronic payment system. In the end, in July 2014, Stellar was officially launched, with an initial investment from Stripe of $3 million.

Intended to raise the funds for development, the plan spawned an ICO (Initial Coin Offering). Throughout this ICO they managed to raise 39 million dollars and 100 billion lumens were deployed. After the triumph of this ICO , Mercado Bitcoin , a Brazilian exchange, announced its adoption in August 2014. Later, other exchanges began to admit the cryptocurrency on their platforms.

By January 2015, there were already around 300,000 customer accounts registered on its platform. Furthermore, its market capitalization exceeded 15 million. In November 2015, the Stellar Development Foundation released an entirely new update to the network. In this update, the new agreement protocol called SCP ( Stellar Consensum Protocol) arrived. This was created by Professor David Mazières of Stanford University. It was entirely different from any other protocol known as PoS or PoW and offers unique properties

In May 2017, the commercial arm of the company was launched, its website and official name was Lightyear. In September 2017, a scholarship program was announced, which belongs to its Stellar Group Scholarship Program. Through it, the allies would be granted up to 2 million in lumens for the development of projects. In September 2018, Lightyear Corporation acquired Chain, Inc. and the combined company was renamed Interstellar.

It is currently one of the fastest growing platforms in the blockchain financial world, also counting on a continuous evolution of its technology.

Stellar technical characteristics

Like almost all open source cryptocurrency projects, Stellar has its primary repository hosted on GitHub. From there we have the possibility of having access to all the pieces that make up the plan. The bases of its protocol, management core, consumers, SDK, Docker package… make up a total of well over 90 diverse projects. All of them under the Apache 2.0 license. Thus, the plan ensures that the code can be used in community or private projects.

Such projects mostly remain created in various programming languages. Among them we have the possibility of naming the use of C++ (in its C++14 standard), Go, Python, Java, JS, Ruby and Shell. This means that there is an extensive development ecosystem. All this benefiting from a common program core.

However, the most incredible thing about Stellar is its own contributions to blockchain technology.

Among them we have the possibility of highlighting the following:

Stellar Agreement Protocol – SCP

Stellar Consensum Protocol ( SCP ) is the agreement protocol developed especially for this network. The SCP uses a Federated Byzantine Consensus (FBA) type scheme.

SCP's performance is detailed in the whitepaper released by the Stellar Development Foundation. In it, they argue how the SCP ended the FBA criteria, and adapted to a decentralized, roleless network using quorum and quorum segments.

For the adequate performance of the FBAs, the competitors have to wait until the majority can reach an agreement. Thus, competitors know which transactions are more important before they begin to settle them. In this way, once the majority of the network takes a position, the network accepts the transaction and makes it unfeasible to roll it back for an attacker. Only then, the competitors provide the transactions by settled. With this, the FBA agreement can secure the entirety of a financial network. And at the same time, it ensures its decentralized control and organic growth of it.

The FBAs give SCP a gigantic reliability and a sequence of unique properties, among which stand out:

Decentralized control. Anyone can participate and there is no central authority. Network approvals require an agreement from the network.

Low latency. The nodes have the possibility to reach an agreement in the terms that humans expect for web or payment transactions. This means that; it only takes a few seconds as major, to reach a unanimous agreement.

flexible trust. Users possess the independence to rely on any mix of pieces they consider appropriate.

asymptotic stability. Stability is based on digital signatures and hash families. These limits have the possibility of being realistically adapted. With this system 51% attacks are avoided.

Horizon – One API to handle everything

As we have already said, Stellar has a fairly cohesive core of work. However, in order to do this, its developers have made Horizon. This is a module designed to work as a web service, through which most applications have the ability to interact with the network. This creates a stable and concise environment to link the various applications to interact with the network using

Horizon as an intermediary.

Thus, Horizon provides an easy way to send transactions, check accounts and subscribe to events. The use of Horizon gives Stellar a lot of flexibility, to the point where using a web browser (Firefox or Chrome) we have the possibility of interacting directly with the network. Additionally. it is feasible to design interfaces on top of Horizon quite immediately and simply. This gives unparalleled ease and flexibility when developing systems. Therefore, it is quite simple to add new properties allowing Stellar to grow with the push of its society. A situation that favors Stellar , since it promotes its extension and greatly allows the deployment and development of compatible systems. All this using tools that maintain compatibility with its development core.

This makes it feasible to use embedded systems in electronic devices that interact with the network, and allow us to make use of it. As an example, embed a Stellar node in a Smart TV and from there be able to access the network's functionalities. which shows the potential of technology and the ease of providing access to it.

Stellar Core – The core of the Stellar network

Each Horizon server connects to a Stellar Core, which is the backbone of the network. The Stellar Core is in charge of decentralizing the services of the network, and at the same time ensures its proper management. Thus, the network becomes a collection of interconnected Stellar Cores, managed by different individuals and entities from all over the planet.

The said functionalities are as follows

- Guarantee the balance and decentralized performance of the network.

- Be responsible for the connection between the various network services. These services have the possibility of being commanded by Horizon or other Stellar Core.

- Do the monitoring and control of the historical and the modification of the own blockchain.

- Ensuring public history of transactions and ledger entries in external persistent storage. This is used for auditing and as a source of recovery data for the other nodes.

- Guarantee hashing and non-duplication of blocks on the network.

- Control services according to your entire network.

Stellar Network – The cluster of stellar cores

Stellar Network is a worldwide collection of stellar cores (Stellars Cores). All said Core, are maintained by different people and companies. The distributed nature of the network makes it reliable and secure. All said nuclei make up the network of nodes, which occasionally agree on sets of transactions. Each transaction on the network costs a small fee: 100 stroops (0.00001 XLM ). This rate helps prevent spam from being sent to the network, guaranteeing its good performance.

What are Lumens?

A lumen is a unit of digital currency, as is the status of bitcoin for the Bitcoin network. Lumens are the primary and native asset of the Stellar network. They remain included in the network. Logically you cannot have Lumens in your hand, they are a digital asset, however they are essential for managing the Stellar network because they contribute to the function of transferring money around the world instantly and safely.

Once Stellar was dropped, the name of their tokens was not Lumen. They were called the same as our network. After a year, in 2015, the network was improved and the name was changed to Lumen to mark the difference of the network and avoid confusion with the name of the foundation.

Why does the Stellar network require Lumens?

Lumens are applied online as an anti-spam tool. Precisely, Lumens are needed to make a transaction and bypass accounts with empty balances. In this way, the network is safeguarded, preventing malicious actors from saturating it, with an attack 2. However, each of the accounts needs a minimum balance of 0.5 Lumens. In this way, users are encouraged to keep the blockchain clean by deleting abandoned accounts. Due to which, each of the accounts that make up this network have an economic utility.


- Transactions on this platform are much faster than Bitcoin transactions. They take about 5 seconds to develop and verify.

- Commissions are actually quite low. However, these allow the platform to be an ecosystem safeguarded against an attack 2.

- One of its main allies is the great IBM . This ensures the technical understanding and financial expertise essential to a plan for these properties.

- The accessories that make up the Stellar Foundation belong to the best in the market, which is always a good sign.

- The platform has the ability to launch ICOs for other projects.

- The protocol is extensible, proof of this is the function of adding support for payments using the Lightning Network, which would make the Stellar network much more immediate and flexible.

- The system does not use mining for its verification process and makes use of the SHA-256 algorithm for stability. This gives a much more friendly ecosystem with energy use.

- The platform provides high scalability. Currently the network can handle up to 2 thousand TPS . However, engineers think that the network can scale to 10,000 TPS using services such as Google Cloud Servers.


- One of the reasons why the plan caught the attention of the public has been its resemblance to the Ripple plan. For this reason, investors decided to invest in the plan expecting a very high productivity. And it is that; the similarities of the projects mean that the costs of one and the other basically fluctuate almost in unison.

- It is not fully decentralized. Although the distribution of the tokens is different from that of the Ripple tokens, currently well over 90% of them remain in the hands of the foundation. This can cause some distrust, and although the signs say the opposite, there could be a saturation of the market after a massive distribution of Lumens.

Technical Analysis

First April 29, 2022 from the maximum of Stellar that was May 16, 2021 there has been a drop of 74.97% of the asset based on closings of the Japanese candles. As we know the Stellar project is a decentralized and open source platform that connects banks, payment systems and people. This platform was designed to facilitate cross-border transactions in order to make them faster, safer and cheaper.

We have a good fundamental to try to take it into account for our SPOT.
So let's go to the technical analysis that we could currently perform on Stellar based on concepts of price and volume action.

Stellar is at the middle of the 2021 and 2020 support

At this current price, Stellar could be considered to be at a fairly good price to start DCA for the long term. In addition to visualizing a descending wedge on the chart you are repeatedly testing a Bearish TrendLine .

The volatility of the asset is at minimum values, so you don't have to worry about a fairly strong drop at this point.

If we refer to volume currently the current existing bearish volume , it is having weakness in the existing bullish trend in the 4H period.

The recommendation is to DCA from now to 0.148 which is the low I would expect Stellar to hit at the moment.

I hope you liked the analysis 😊
