Stellar is a decentralized, fast, and scalable network for financial products and services. It’s the optimal blockchain solution for both cross-border payments and digital asset issuance, designed to complement and connect the world’s financial infrastructure. Financial institutions worldwide issue assets and settle payments on the Stellar network (which has grown to more 5 million accounts). Stellar is open-source, which means it is free to build upon, and is supported by robust documentation and a thriving ecosystem of companies and developers.
The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) supports the development and growth of Stellar. Founded in 2014, the Foundation helps maintain Stellar’s codebase, supports the technical and business communities building on the network, and serves as a voice to regulators and institutions. The Foundation seeks to create equitable access to the global financial system, using the Stellar network to unlock the world’s economic potential through blockchain technology.
