A brief history of Stellar Lumens

Stellar is a publicly available decentralized marketplace with various assets in circulation. The platform also has its own open source cryptocurrency Stellar Lumens (XLM).

The currency is based on the Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP), which is similar in principle to the BFT protocol of the Ripple platform, but has a significant difference — all network validators are equivalent, there are no central control nodes in the blockchain. XLM coin is more decentralized than Ripple, but less decentralized than Proof-Of-Work cryptocurrencies (such as Bitcoin and Ethereum).

What is a Memo and do I need to specify it?

When sending XLM, there is an additional Memo field. Memo is the ID of the payment. It is unique, and with its help the service identifies the sender and recipient. Be sure to include it when paying for the order.

If you forgot to enter a Memo or entered it incorrectly, write to our technical support. We will solve this problem.

Stellar Lumens network speed and fees

XLM is considered to be a fast blockchain. The transaction is confirmed in a few seconds. The fee is very small, on average 0.00001 XLM.

A brief history of Cardano

At the end of 2014, former Ethereum developer Charles Hoskins put together a team to create a Cardano platform that, in his opinion, had to meet all his requirements. With the help of the platform, Charles Hoskins wanted to introduce cryptocurrency into the real economy, make microtransactions convenient and create convenient conditions for launching reliable and secure decentralized applications.

Cardano address formats

There are 2 types of Cardano addresses:

  1. Byron is the first version of an address that starts with "A" or "D".
    Example: Ae2tdPwUPEZGJXifUWS7Dps4DU836BUKxQi11RdREsc6AkW4PZYUrVANfiJ
    Example:

  2. Shelley is a new type of address based on the bech32 format. The address starts with "addr1". A feature of these addresses is their compactness. If earlier all information was stored in the blockchain, now only the most necessary remains there. Also, the new address model allows for up to 123 address versions.
