Stellar

Over the course of the past few years, many cryptocurrencies have emerged that have demonstrated a definite use case, and one of those is Stellar (XLM). SDF or the Stellar Development Foundation, which looks after the entire ecosystem of the cryptocurrency, made a major announcement today, and it could have far-reaching implications.

Major Boost

The SDF announced a new protocol altogether with regards to its network on Monday and added that it has burned as many as 55 billion XLM (Stellar Lumens). The burning of those many tokens by the company is going to reduce the number of XLM in circulation, and it remains to be seen what sort of effect this will have on the price.

The whole project is apparently trying to become far more efficient in the near future, and the SDF believes that the move to burn 55 billion Stellar tokens will help in streamlining operations considerably. Considering the fact that XLM is now trading for $0.085 each at this point, the cost of the tokens that were burned is pegged at around $4.7 billion. However, the market has reacted positively to the move, and the price of XLM has rallied by as much as 18% at $0.0816 after the news broke.

The SDF published a post on Medium in which it explained the rationale behind the move. In the post, it stated that the move is going to make the ecosystem more efficient. It stated, “SDF can be leaner and do the work it was created to do using fewer lumens. Over the years we’ve also seen that giveaways and airdrops have diminishing effects, especially in the outsized amounts our original plan was designed to support.” It went on to state that out of the remaining tokens, the SDF is going to give away as many as 12 billion tokens to make Stellar more popular in the crypto sphere.
