What is Stellar

This is a fork of the Ripple Labs protocol and is hugely based on the same use-case of Ripple for cross-boundary payments.Trading at a constantly low price due to it’s zero or almost no fees. Staying compliant with regulators, this was also to help people harness the power of Blockchain, if they have a bank account or not. Stellar also enables Smart Contracts and Tokenization or customized assets.

Features & Technology

Similar to the EVM, Horizon is a dedicated VM and testnet for Stellar based Smart Contracts or Scripts to perfectly execute in, within the testnet the performance of a contract may differ from actual chain deployment.
Much like a masternode, the stellar core is a node that has the entire copy of the stellar blockchain on their storages, this can be a personal computer to an entire server.
Every node on the network must agree on a single transaction log so there is no different versions of the ledger on the network, essentially the Byzantine Fault problem, this is the consensus of stellar.
Identical to the Smart Contracts found in the environment of Ethereum, the Smart Contract can generate assets, transfer ownership, create tokens and burn them. Stellar based Smart Contracts are not Turing Complete.
For operating transactions like financial institutions, Stellar was made to scale transactions that don't only require the value of addresses sending but alot more, which is called an operation, the stellar network can more or less handle 1000 operations within a second.
