What is Stellar Lumens (XLM)?
Stellar Lumens (XLM) are the currency used by the Stellar network, and when the network was started 100 billion Lumens (XLM) were created. A transaction using Lumens costs just .0001 XLM, worth a small fraction of a penny, and usually takes less than 6 seconds to be settled. While Ripple is focused on providing solutions to banks, Stellar aims to help facilitate payments between people.
