Stellar Development Foundation

Stellar.org grew from a scrappy pair of cofounders— Jed McCaleb and Joyce Kim—to a lean, diverse team of sixteen.
Spreading the word
Executive Director Joyce Kim was honored to speak about Stellar at the United Nations.

Our mission is to enable low-income people in underserved communities to take control of their financial lives. The next 365 days will be about making Stellar more accessible so we can achieve that mission. We'll be launching the new network, as well as introducing tools for learning to use and build on Stellar. And we need your help. In year two, the Stellar community will be even more involved. So what can you do?
Come to us with project ideas that could use Stellar collaboration. The #general Slack channel and QQ are good places to talk.
Donate to Stellar.org. Your Stellar contributions bring us closer to a world where all human beings can participate in the global economy. Together, we can use the next year to work towards a new financial future.
