How to buy Stellar Lumens

XLM

Simply put, Stellar is a blockchain for storing and moving money. It is designed so all the world’s financial systems can work together on a single network. Stellar’s cryptocurrency, the Stellar Lumen (XLM), powers the Stellar payment network. Stellar aims to connect banks, payment systems, and individuals quickly and reliably. You can buy and sell XLM for any major cryptocurrency – like BTC and XRP – or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade XLM for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade XLM to CAD based on the XLM price.

Stellar was created in 2014 by the Stellar Development Foundation. Jed McCaleb, co-founder of Ripple, is among the founders of Stellar Lumens. Stellar was introduced as a facilitator for global payments that also maintained the integrity of financial transactions. Lumens, the currency of the Stellar network, was created for this purpose. It acts as a neutral currency on Stellar-backed payment portals, so that no national currency is ‘preferred’ and everyone across the globe enjoys a transparent, frictionless and agnostic payment facilitator.

You may want to consider buying XLM if you would like to:

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of digital assets

Settle cross-border payments made on any platform that uses the Stellar network

Trade it for Bitcoin to hold or buy/sell good online
