002 - SDF Invests $5 Million into Wyre and $USDC is NOW LIVE!!
002 - SDF Invests $5 Million into Wyre and $USDC is NOW LIVE!! Hello, Welcome to A Stellar World Podcast. Where we discuss all things Stellar and cryptocurrency. I’m your host Joe. The Stellar Development Foundation announced on January 26 that they were investing $5 million dollars into Wyre(spelled W Y R E). Wyre’s company description reads, “Wyre is a company that is leveraging blockchain technology to build the fastest and most cost effective way to transfer money internationally. No strings attached.” Also from the Stellar press release on USDC it says, “Stellar USDC pairs the world’s leading digital dollar stablecoin, which has seen over 1,000% year-over-year growth and now has nearly $6B USDC in circulation, with the Stellar network, an established and proven blockchain, which has processed more than 1.5 billion total operations and last year saw a 104% YoY growth in total payments on the network. The integration brings immediate value to the Stellar ecosystem, connecting and creating new business opportunities for existing Stellar-based businesses, USDC’s network of existing partners, and future FinTechs looking to optimize payments, especially cross-border transactions. Businesses, developers, and retail users can learn about how to immediately get started leveraging Stellar USDC at stellar.org/USDC.” It goes on to say, “Businesses and developers can directly access Stellar USDC via one single integration — the Circle Account and its API Services. The Circle Account is a free service powered by a set of APIs that thousands of global businesses use to accept payments at scale, issue programmable payouts, build marketplaces, and soon, receive yield on top of their balance. The Account is free, and via the Circle Multichain Authorized Distributors Program, customers can use Circle APIs to swap among blockchains at no cost. With the Circle Account, businesses around the world can connect bank accounts and mint, redeem, store, send, and receive Stellar USDC.” As a reminder I am not a financial advisor and you should do your own research before making an investment decision.

001 - Stellar's 2021 Roadmap
Hello, Welcome to A Stellar World  Podcast. Where we discuss all things Stellar and cryptocurrency. I’m your host Joe. Today we are going to take a look at Stellar’s 2021 Roadmap that was presented by Denelle Dixon. The CEO at the Stellar Development Foundation. Overall, the roadmap sounds solid. Some sense of stability in a very volatile sector is needed. Eventually the crypto market will settle and there will be winners and losers. I believe with a solid plan and worldwide partnerships Stellar can be a winner. To check out the Stellar roadmap for yourself go to https://stellar.org/roadmap. As always thank you for listening and please follow for new episodes!

Introduction
Hello, Welcome to the A Stellar World Podcast. Where we discuss all things Stellar and cryptocurrency. I’m your host Joe. I became fascinated with cryptocurrency over the past two years. I never invested much money or time into crypto, but today I believe it’s essential to have an understanding of something that will be here to stay. It’s very clear that governments large and small, financial institutions, businesses, and citizens around the world are interested in how cryptocurrency could affect them. As I’ve learned more about different coins I instantly liked Stellar and the possibility of it becoming the world exchange for central banks. That’s what inspired me to create this podcast to share updates and insights about Stellar. The podcast will be released three times a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. As always, I am not a financial advisor and I recommend doing your own research before making any investment decision. Please follow to get new episodes. Thank you for listening!
