Stellar Payments

What is Stellar?

Stellar is an open-source, decentralized crypto project designed to facilitate cross-border transactions and exchanges with any currency pairs. Stellar was founded by Jed McCaleb, founder of Mt.Gox, and Joyce Kim, a former lawyer, in 2014.

They created the nonprofit Stellar Development Foundation and launched the project in July. The protocol uses Lumens (XLM) as its cryptocurrency, but many users still call it stellar, as it was its original name. Stellar has some strong partners, like IBM, KlickEx, ICICI Bank, etc.

The process of getting started will take no more than a couple of minutes. It involves registering for a NOWPayments account, generating your API key, and integrating our payment gateway into your website simply by copying a chunk of HTML code.
