Stellar is an open source distributed Hybrid Blockchain that connects people and businesses to a global payment system, fast and at a very low cost.
We created a new way to pay to redefine the standard of speed, commissions and security.
The third generation of cryptocurrencies decreases transaction costs by allowing micro-payments to be made from anywhere in the world at costs of less than cents. With one dollar you can pay up to 100.000 transfers in lumens.
Transactions on the Stellar decentralized network take between 2 and 5 seconds. Therefore we can say that it can be up to 500 times faster than cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
Stellar allows for multi-currency transactions between cryptocurrencies and also between trust pairs. There is a Stellar order book where you can enter the global market by creating buy or sell orders that will allow you to move very quickly from USD to CLP, from ARS to ETH or from XLM to BTC.
