The Stellar Network is a decentralized peer-to-peer framework, which allows users to transfer different assets, such as dollars, euros, gold, stocks, Bitcoin etc., and trade them with other users using Lumens. Lumens, XLM, is the Stellar coin. XLM crypto does not have any staking or mining, and the supply of Lumen is fixed.
Stellar crypto's algorithm verifying transactions is called the Stellar Consensus Protocol (SCP), and it allows the network to scale rapidly, and to run much more efficiently than most proof-of-work blockchains, for example, Bitcoin.
Anchors are one of the main features of the Stellar network, making it decentralized. They represent trusted entities which can be in control of peoples' deposits, as well as function as a bridge between the Stellar blockchain and other digital assets.
