Stellar is an open network for storing and moving money. Stellar allows individuals to create, send, and trade all forms of digital money, including dollars and Bitcoin.

Is Stellar Lumens a good investment?

Stellar Lumens is tackling the real-world problem and aims to unlock the world’s economic potential by making money more fluid. It helps to remove the handicaps of traditional remittances, especially in developing economies. Stellar's potential is strong based on its partnerships with big companies like IBM, BitBond, and Franklin Templeton as well as with the Australian and Ukrainian governments. These partnerships should continue to drive Stellar's usage in international payments, which could make lumens a good long-term investment.

Coins Research Report expects Stellar to reach $6 by 2025 and $14 by 2030.

How high can XLM go?

Given the run-up in altcoins in 2021, and especially given the real-world utility of XLM, there could be a strong upside. However, realistically speaking, it could rise to $1 by the end of 2021. Given the protocol updates and increasing adoption, Stellar Lumens has a real shot at hitting $10 in five or six years.

How many XLM coins are there?

There are nearly 22.5 billion XLM tokens in circulation and the supply is capped at 50 billion tokens. The previous cap was 100 billion tokens. In 2019, Stellar burned about half of its outstanding lumens, which led to a price jump. This move was also seen as cryptocurrency manipulation. Stellar revealed that it won't produce any more lumens in an effort to stabilize its market.
