Stellar’s expanding network of anchors, applications, developers and companies is changing how people exchange and send money.
When applications want to integrate Stellar, their first design decision is whether to build a custodial or noncustodial wallet -- in short, do they want to custody their customers’ keys and funds, or have the customers do it themselves?
The next question is in which geographies the applications want to have on and off ramps to tokenized assets.
Please note you will need to integrate with the Stellar network Horizon APIs as well as Stellar Anchor APIs (example) which may require a separate agreement with an anchor.
The final question is what tokenized assets and use cases you plan to offer customers. If you’re curious how Stellar could help you grow your business, we’d love to talk.
