Late in March last year, Stellar Lumens had announced their distribution of 16 billion Lumens to Bitcoin holders as part of’s commitment to reserve 19% of the initial Lumens. According to their claims, this was because Bitcoin was a profound inspiration to them during their first Stellar designing.

Their older statements express:

“The Bitcoin network was the first to show that it’s possible for a group of untrusted parties to agree on a common database, and the Bitcoin community still influences our understanding of this technology’s impact.”

“Charlie do have an opinion of stellar? Do you consider them competition?”
