Stellar Lumens (XLM) is a cryptocurrency made by Jed McCaleb and the Stellar Foundation in 2014. Stellar is often described as an open-source, distributed and community owned network used to facilitate cross-asset transfer. Its goal is to create universal access and participation in the global economy. The Stellar exchange has created functions that allow users to transfer crypto into fiat and vice-versa through the help of stablecoins

The inception of Stellar comes after McCaleb left Ripple, a company he founded, due to disagreements in the direction the network should head toward. After leaving Ripple, McCaleb went on to create the Stellar Foundation, which in turn created the Stellar network. 

XLM is the token behind the Stellar network and is often referred to as Lumens. It is often said that Ripple is a fork of Stellar but this is not entirely true Although Stellar may have started its groundwork from the Ripple code, the two codebases are now completely different. For example, Stellar uses a completely different consensus mechanism to Ripple. The key difference between the two is that Stellar is targeted towards helping individuals whereas Ripple intends to help banks. 

XLM operates on the Stellar Consensus Protocol which is basically a network of peers that are capable of running the Stellar Consensus Protocol independently. This method of operation, although not as decentralized as traditional Proof-Of-Work protocols, allows for a high degree of efficiency as it allows transactions to occur through a consensus process among accounts in a quorum slice (meaning only a slice of the network needs consensus for the transaction to occur).
