Stellar Development Foundation
Stellar is an open-source network for currencies and payments. Stellar makes it possible to create, send and trade digital representations of all forms of money—dollars, pesos, bitcoin, pretty much anything. It’s designed so all the world’s financial systems can work together on a single network.
Stellar has no owner; if anything it’s owned by the public. The software runs across a decentralized, open network and handles millions of transactions each day. Like Bitcoin and Ethereum, Stellar relies on blockchain to keep the network in sync, but the end-user experience is more like cash—Stellar is much faster, cheaper, and more energy-efficient than typical blockchain-based systems.
This fresh-faced Stellar.org provides visitors an intuitive onboarding experience, better visibility into what’s happening around the ecosystem, and more tools that support our continued commitment to transparency.
Meridian was the first Stellar conference. It brought together everyone in the Stellar universe, alongside major financial institutions and industry experts, for two days of networking, learning, drinks, food, and fun. Attendees met talented, passionate people from around the globe in sessions designed to facilitate collaboration, creativity, and connection. It was a place to share new initiatives, new ideas, and new products. And it all happened in an incredible venue: the lush Proyecto Público Prim in Mexico City.
