What is XLM?

XLM or Stellar Lumens is the cryptocurrency of the Stellar blockchain network. It can be used to represent any form of currency or value transacted on the network, as well as pay for transaction costs. 

Launched with 100 billion lumens, the total supply was reduced by half in 2019, leaving approximately 20 billion lumens on the open market and 30 billion in a development fund. 

XLM as a transaction technology is outstanding - allowing users to transfer almost any amount of value across the world in seconds, for a tiny fee.
