What Is Stellar
Stellar.org (https://www.stellar.org/) is a decentralized platform that connects banks, payments systems, and people. It allows you to integrate & move money quickly, reliably, and at almost no cost.
The Stellar Development Foundation is hosting a meet up in our hometown of San Francisco!
Come to learn about Stellar, and stay to meet likeminded blockchain enthusiasts. We'll have drinks and snacks at Cloudflare's space on Townsend, and plenty to talk about.
In this meetup we will have Nikhil Saraf, Principal Engineer at the Stellar Development Foundation, talk about the developer ecosystem in Stellar, along with different ways to get involved in various Stellar-related projects. The focus of the talk will be a deep-dive into Kelp, an Automated Trading Bot for the Stellar Decentralized Exchange and centralized exchanges.
Lindsay Lin, Legal Counsel at SDF, will also update the community on regulatory efforts Stellar has been making in DC and provide insights on how the industry may shape going into the future.
Stellar is a fast, scalable, and uniquely sustainable platform for decentralized financial products. It is both a cross-currency transaction system, designed specifically for international settlement, and a decentralized global marketplace. Dozens of financial institutions and tens of thousands of individuals worldwide issue assets and settle payments on Stellar. Stellar's software is built around its consensus protocol, which is the most energy-efficient in blockchain. Stellar is free to use and open to contributions from developers everywhere.
