XLM | Stellar - General

If you are not all in on XLM, you are really fucking up.

Benefits of Stellar:

- ICOs
- Smart-contracts; just not Turing-complete
- Faster than all other networks
- Moderately decentralized
- Transactions cost next to nothing
- IBM running the world-wide network nodes (dashboard.stellar.org/)
- IBM is Stellar's trojan horse shill to get them hooked up with financial institutions
- Can easily replace Bitcoin or Ethereum
- KIN has already defected from Ethereum
- MOBI chose Stellar over Ethereum
- Stellar consensus protocol: 1000s / tx / second
- Network being prepped for global-scale stress
- Importantly, Stellar forces the use of its coin, XLM, as the cost for using the network
- Inflation distributed weekly to those who own XLM

Real World Implementation:

- First launch of Stellar ATM in Singapore

Still not bought in, nigger?

When FairX news drops, it will break the crypto internet. You will see massive increases in XLM's price. By the time you FOMO, it will be too late.

You have been warned.

Aaaaaaaand again.

Rotate that pic 90 degrees for now. Waiting though...

Going all in on something is fucking retarded. I don't want to see your pink wojaks.

However, Stellar is a solid product with a bright future. EOY price estimates?

lumencucks irl

1.5 would make me a happy man

Actually gave the whitepaper a read and everything look VERY good.

Might jump in with 1 btc.

Its top 4 coin very soon.

Just breached yesterday's 24 hour high

lets go!

Keep going!

That's the point mate, it's one of the few projects that are technologically solid and have serious non-amateur effort behind them.

$5 I’m thinking. I just checked CMC, market cap is 11billion. Ripple is 72 billion. XLM isn’t a direct competitor to ripple but thy are similar in ways. XLM has a lot of big projects and partnerships slated for this year and I feel we will have no problem reaching 60bil marketcap. Can anyone honestly refute this? We were at 90 cents a couple weeks ago this is a great buy in price.
I am very bullish but not all in, about 50%. I’m waiting for icx to pay off actually to put all that into stellar. For me I’m holding til end of year so I can cash out as long term cap gains. If you’re looking for short term maybe $1.50, $2 if we’re real lucky.
Buy in or not, sell your bags, idgaf. Just putting my opinion out on this guy.

Looking at the order book, any little shred of news or anyone buying a big stack will set this fuse off like crazy.

Pleas drop to fifty cents again so I can buy more. Wtf whales? Where are you when I need you?


Literally kill yourself with this reddit-tier post. You've had plenty of time to accumulate since 0.1x.

>$0.01 gain is mooning
imagine being this deep in a useless shitcoin

What? I bought in at .30 and .55. I would like it to go down to because I would prefer not to buy at .60

This isn't a useless shitcoin if you haven't done your research, pajeet.

Why you do create this fucking thread every damn day. biz adoption has plateaued for the time being. I hold, and expect it to moon in coming month, but you dumb ass threads do nothing for exposure or price. Stop faggot

shillpill me on how it's better than ripple, or is it just a cheaper XRP

XLM>Link>FUN for best memes

Got back in, went to zclasic at 100 dllrs sold and came back, doubled my lumens

OP post tells you your answers.


itt: desperate shilling in a vain hope to unload very heavy bags

I guess OP bought shillar lolmensis at $ .70+.

>it takes the attention away from my TRON/FUN/DBC threads

>we all have to be out to fuck each other all the time because that's what other 4channers would do, r..right /bros/?!

CNBC Pushes Stellar as possible best coin of 2018

>Who is Stellar?

Stellar.org operates as a non-stock nonprofit organization. Our mission is to connect people to low-cost financial services to fight poverty and maximize individual potential. To that end, we don’t charge people or institutions for use of the Stellar network. Stellar.org covers operational costs in several ways: 5% of the initial lumens are set aside for operational costs, Stellar.org accepts tax-deductible donations from the public.

A transaction on the network consists of one or more operations. Payments, offers, and fees are all examples of operations that could make up a single transaction. Depending on hardware and network configurations, a conservative estimate of Stellar’s processing rate is 1000 operations per second.

There’s a nominal fee, referred to as a base fee, associated with each operation in a transaction. The base fee functions as a deterrent: Though nominal, it discourages users with malicious intentions from flooding the network with transactions (otherwise known as a DoS attack). The base fee is currently set to .00001 XLM—a fraction of a fraction of a penny. The sender of the transaction incurs the fee. No one profits from the base fee. The ledger collects the fees and redistributes them in the process of inflation.


5 Things You Need To Know About Stellar Lumens According To IBM
IBM’s Michael Dowling, Group CTO and Chief Architect for Blockchain Financial Services, referred to in his Reddit post a month ago about their partnership with Stellar.

IBM and Stellar have a common purpose to fix a genuine problem and they are determined to stick together to make this happen
>The IBM/Stellar Universal Payment Solution represents a shift in the way traditional – and now non-traditional – financial institutions can send value around the world with as little fraction as legally possible….The folks at Stellar, like us, want to see the world move past the 40 + year old fragmented system that we all suffer in today, but move towards a system that is more fair and equitable for all. This partnership is not just long term – it’s tight. Stellar joined the Hyperledger Foundation in addition to partnering on this project. There are many upcoming projects coming up this year about to be announced.

Stellar Lumens (XLM / STR) is already active and being used in very practical ways. Volume will only increase as more partnerships are announced. Results will be seen very soon – Q1 2018.

>XLM, while relatively small today, is growing fast. More and more people are using Lumens and trading them actively. We have a strong desire (and requirement) to open the market for fiat to XLM at the institutional level. We have 1 major market maker right now, and 14 major institutions involved in direct or indirect capacity on the network. Starting in Q1 2018, you should see more of those institutions redirecting payment traffic on the network.
This major market maker is rumored to be Bank of America based on one of their websites mentioning XLM in the code before the page was promptly taken down.

It is steps ahead of Bitcoin as it is already compliant with regulations

>A very unique capability with Stellar is the ability to issue an asset directly on the network, and specify how that asset is managed on the network and what nodes validate and confirm transactions. That means we can work with other parties – such as traditional fiat currency issuers (stay tuned) …Together with the technology developed at IBM, the ability to clear transactions with very fast settlement using Lumens was a no-brainer and a perfect match. Together, traditional and non-traditional financial institutions can settle using a cryptocurrency with those transactions directly tied to counter-terrorism financing, AML and KYC processes required by regulators around the world. Basically, it’s the missing piece those institutions need to move forward transacting with cryptocurrencies.

XLM allows for any financial instrument to be transferred as a type of ‘money’ to anyone in the world, for free, instantly, and in any currency. This is not just automation, it is revolutionary.

>XLM is one of the assets on Stellar. It’s also used to ‘pay’ for transactions on the network. So XLM has 1) value and 2) utility. There will be other assets. So, for example, let’s say that a fictional island nation called Stellarisle has a central bank, and that central bank wants to issue currency assets on Stellar. In that case, Stellar is used, and XLM is used to power those transactions for those assets, even though XLM isn’t directly used as the settlement mechanism. It doesn’t matter if XLM is the settlement mechanism. Rather what really matters is 1) the safest settlement mechanism is used for two transacting parties, and 2) XLM is still used even as a utility.

I can't wait now, I know where it's going
Meanwhile it's time to just get a bit comfy

open nodes -> actually decentralised unlike ripple, and a way better consensus mechanism

ripple doesn't have smart contracts

fairx is gonna be so useful

when do you expect xlm to really start moving again? early februrary?



former xlm bag holder here, why isn't there literally any reputable information/news releases about fairx? there hasn't been a single update about it since dec 29 on their twitter. for something that is supposed to be so fucking game-changing there's very little proof it's being worked on or even actually exists.
