Stellar was Co-founded by Jed McCaleb, who also founded Ripple and served as CTO until 2013 when he parted ways with the project. Stellar competes directly with Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple offering a superfast crypto-based payments system and a cross-asset transfer framework all in one package.
Its overall crypto-asset transfer framework is very similar to that of Ethereum enabling it to host ICOs (though in limited software project types), facilitating smooth crypto-fiat transactions. Also, it offers transactions at lowest fees (0.00001 lumens) and its transaction speed is comparable to Ripple, making it one of the fastest.
Since its launch, its value has increased from $0.003 to $0.226 per token ( a growth of over 7000% in last four years) and also its market cap went has grown from $772,596 to over $4 billion, due to its continued adoption.
