Mainly focusing on money remittance – the team behind Stellar XLM are trying to develop the most advanced infrastructure for money transferring to that of cross-border level.
In an official blog post published on March 13, the Coinbase team explained that although they are genuinely passionate about the idea (which had a lot of support from the community), XLM trading will be available in all states except New York and other very specific places. The popular american exchange also said that most of its efforts to list more tokens happened because its users actively requested an expansion of said services, something they took quite seriously.
To continue its fruitful path, the Stellar Development Foundation recently announced the revitalization of its executive staff, starting with a new CEO. The Stellar Development Foundation team agreed to hire Denelle Dixon to be the new commander of the project. Former CEO Jed McCaleb was quite enthusiastic about this change and was positive that Ms. Dixon would play a crucial role in consolidating Stellar’s vision, just as she did during her presence in Mozilla.
