Is Stellar XLM a Good Investment?
Stellar is unlike most of the other blockchains in the market that support smart contract functionality and let developers create dApps. It focuses solely on easing digital payments and fostering the use of digital currencies for transactions in place of fiat currency.
The Stellar network is primarily a platform that allows users to transfer payments globally with the power of cryptocurrency. With this in mind, the open network already has partnered with leading companies such as MoneyGram and IBM.
Its partnerships with mainstream businesses gives Stellar an edge over several of its peers and could indicate potential for growth in XLM's price and market cap. Looking forward, an increased adoption of the Stellar payment network technology among more financial institutions and possibly even governments looking to design CBDCs on its infrastructure could make Lumens an interesting crypto to invest in.
How High Can XLM Price Go?
Stellar Lumens is among the top digital assets, enjoying a high trading volume on top exchanges, but has been overlooked amid the trend of dApps and Web 3.0 related cryptocurrencies. However, a look back at the XLM price history over the years reveals that it holds much promise to head to more highs in the future.
It is impossible to quantify and offer an accurate XLM price prediction in the coming months and years, owing to the highly volatile nature of digital assets. However, we can review the Stellar price history for some guidance on this.
From an all time low of $0.001227 on 18 November 2014, XLM price has made its way to an all time high of $0.9381 on 4 January 2018. This journey has been filled with several ups and downs, which have continued since then as well.
In 2016, Stellar price gained more than 58%. 2017 - the year of the crypto assets' bull run, was especially good for Stellar Lumens. The XLM token ended 2017 after making gains of over 14,400%. In 2018 and 2019, the Stellar price and market cap took somewhat of a beating, sliding lower by over 77% and 61% respectively.
However, the market sentiment turned upbeat after that, with Stellar price ending 2020 higher by more than 182%. It also eked out over 100% gains in 2021, powered by an uptick in trading volume across the cryptocurrency market.

How Many Stellar XLM Coins Are in Circulation?
As of February 2023, the circulating supply of XLM stands at over 26 billion XLM coins, from the total supply which stands at a little over 50 billion. At the time of Stellar’s launch in 2015, the SDF had issued a total of 100 billion XLM tokens.
The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) burned more than 50% of the XLM token’s supply in 2019 to reduce its circulating supply. The SDF was given control of around 30 billion XLM tokens, which it has been using for Stellar’s marketing and development, and also for investing in other ventures.
The remaining tokens make up the circulating supply and are available in the market for use within the Stellar network and for trading in the crypto market.
Can XLM be Staked or Mined?
Stellar’s XLM stands apart from most of the other popular cryptocurrencies as it cannot be mined or staked for generating rewards. Stellar utilizes its unique consensus mechanism, the Stellar Consensus Protocol or SCP, in which the XLM coins play no role in achieving consensus.
The total supply of XLM remains fixed as mentioned above, and while the SDF has burned some tokens in the past, it insists that it has no plans to do so in the future.
