Brief Intro

Stellar was invented by Jed McCaleb who also invented Ripple and its cryptocurrency, XRP. However, in 2014, McCaleb left Ripple to start the Stellar network and in November 2015 launched it to the world. Stellar is the payment network and Stellar Lumens (XLM) is the cryptocurrency. The Stellar network allows people (and institutions alike) to send money around the world in a quick, easy and low-cost way. Because Stellar is trying to remove all steps involved in sending money worldwide, people can instantly send money without delays, needing banking approvals or paying high fees. The goal is to provide the everyday person – especially the unbanked – with a better option to send remittances. If you are wondering how to buy XLM in Canada, Netcoins is a publicly-traded, fully regulated crypto trading platform based in Canada. With 0% funding fees, free cash withdrawals, and live customer support service seven days a week, we make it simple for Canadians to buy Stellar Lumens (XLM) and other cryptocurrencies.

More About Stellar Lumens
At its core, Stellar is a payment system that allows money to move across borders quickly and affordably. By doing so it seeks to solve the issues that plague the current financial system: mainly that it’s slow and expensive to move money worldwide. Here’s an example of the existing financial infrastructure and how Stellar aims to improve it. Imagine you’re in America and wish to send money to your cousin, Ana, who lives in Brazil. You know your bank isn’t connected to her bank so you use a money service provider to send the money. It will take a few days to send money and you will be charged a high fee for doing so. Sure, you could pay a premium fee to expedite the process but it’s not ideal. This is where Stellar comes in. Stellar is a decentralized platform connecting people, payment services and banks together. By collaborating, people can easily move money anywhere around the world at low costs.

You don’t need to buy a lot of XLM to get started! You can buy fractions of an XLM. In fact, the smallest possible unit of XLM is called a stroop and is equivalent to 0.000001 XLM (6 decimal places). Many beginners start their XLM journey by accumulating small amounts of XLM. You can start as small as $10, or invest up to $10 million with Netcoins.

When sending money around the world, banks will be involved in the process of approving, exchanging currencies and sending money. The more complex the chain of banks involved, the more complicated, expensive and time-consuming the process becomes. Stellar on the other hand is a payment network looking to remove all the barriers for sending money worldwide. It’s allowing people to send money to each other even if they don’t have bank accounts. In this way, Stellar is solving the remittance problem that exists today. Lumens was the cryptocurrency that was created from this initiative.

You can buy XLM from crypto trading platforms, like Netcoins, and leave your XLM inside the platform. However, there are much safer options to storing your cryptocurrency as leaving them in exchanges can expose them to certain risks like hacking and theft. The safest option to keeping your XLM secure is to transfer them into a crypto wallet. A crypto wallet is a type of digital wallet that is used to send and receive crypto, similar to a Google wallet or a physical wallet


XLM is a great way for investors to diversify their cryptocurrency portfolio by having a mix of traditional (stocks, bonds, etc) and decentralized (XLM) assets. People buy XLM for three main reasons: Trading of currencies/assets across borders is quick and affordable It’s trying to expand financial inclusion by reaching the world’s unbanked Offers cheap transactions (every transaction costs 0.00001 XLM) Another reason investors like XLM is because of its supply. At first, the Stellar Foundation had over 100 billion lumens (XLM) but burned around 50% of all lumens, decreasing its total supply cap to 50 billion.
