    About Us

    Our mission is open source financial access for all.

    The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) was founded in 2014 by Jed McCaleb. We consider Stellar the “platform of the people” - building world-class, decentralized, and open-source technology that’s accessible and affordable to everyone. We believe that our technology and mission enables our diverse developer ecosystem to build innovative and transformative technologies on top of Stellar. Most of all, we firmly believe that we are building the financial system of the future - and that at the heart of it should be an inclusive culture.

    Our Work

    Stellar is an open network for sending and exchanging value of any kind. Our global network enables digitization of assets - from carbon credits to currencies - and enables movement around the internet with ease. In doing so, it’s faster, cheaper, and more environmentally friendly than alternative platforms, and it empowers users and organizations to create a global, dependable network of trust while maintaining decentralization.

    Just as the internet allowed anyone to send an email or create a blog, Stellar now allows people to easily send, save, and receive money, without large fees or hassle.

    Where We Are

    Our headquarters is in Hayes Valley in San Francisco, CA. We have satellite offices in Santa Barbara, CA and Brooklyn, NY.

    We look forward to hearing from you!
