Stellar provides payment systems between financial institutions and aims to provide smooth exchange between currencies around the world and low financial costs to all. By connecting to payment platforms such as Stellar M-Pesa and similar, it increases the service area and transaction volume of financial institutions. The essence of Stellar is based on the storage of distributed ledgers on a decentralized network and is similar to many other digital currencies.
