Adam Leonard, CEO at BlockEx, said: "Delivering support for Stellar protocol digital asset issuing and trading is strategically important to us, our white label brokerage partners, and our token sales clients. Now that Stellar support is live, we're readying the launch of our first Stellar-based assets, including primary and secondary token sales on our exchange platform."
Stellar is an open-source protocol for exchanging money or tokens using blockchain technology. It uses Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to connect banks, payment systems and people to facilitate low-cost, cross-asset transfers of value.
Global mobile service provider YOVO endorsed the announcement. "Adding support for Stellar is a smart move for BlockEx as it opens up many more opportunities; and we look forward to working with them," said Richard Skaife, CEO at YOVO. "We're all about changing how mobile services are accessed every day and everywhere. Our customers already use 40 cryptocurrencies and altcoins to pay for mobile services and top-up at more than 500 global mobile operators. Stellar provides YOVO a fast and virtually cost free way to transfer value back to the users of our soon to be launched SIM networks."
