Please note: like most trading venues, we display the current mid-market rates in our price charts. When you trade, you get the current bid or ask price depending on whether you are buying or selling. There is always a slight difference between the mid-market and the current bid or ask prices. This is a natural result of how Exchange order books work.
About Stellar Lumens (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.
