Starting from the 16th of February, Coinfirm has introduced the support of a new protocol in the AML Platform: Stellar Lumens (XLM)!
What is Stellar?
“Stellar is an open-source network for currencies and payments. Stellar makes it possible to create, send and trade digital representations of all forms of money (…) Like Bitcoin and Ethereum, Stellar relies on blockchain to keep the network in sync, but the end-user experience is more like cash — Stellar is much faster, cheaper, and more energy-efficient than typical blockchain-based systems.“
The Stellar network launched in 2015. Since then it’s processed more than 450 million operations made by over 4 million individual accounts. Large enterprise companies and companies as small as single-dev startups have chosen Stellar to move money and access new markets.” – Stellar.org
The Stellar network’s native asset are Lumens – code: XLM – broadly available on a large number of cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets.
The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) – a non-profit organization – tends to have specific, worthwhile ideas and implements them in a simple way, thanks to which the protocol is well-organized. The SDF are very much focused on increasing crypto adoption, including DEX support, across the developing world to improve the inclusivity of finance.
The protocol is well-documented and the community is open and active (see Stellar’s Medium, blog and GitHub). At the beginning of January 2021, the Ukrainian government announced its intention to build their Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) using Stellar.
Coinfirm’s XLM chain support on the AML Platform covers all services available: AML Risk Reports, Visualiser, Blockchain Browser, including the adaptation of the AML model to this protocol for on-chain compliance.
