What is Stellar and how does it work?

At Cheesecake Labs we’ve recently become an integration partner with Stellar and have been excitedly diving into Stellar development. We’ve had to learn all about the technology from Stellar’s engineering and business teams in order to help our clients leverage Stellar’s blockchain. So we’ve put together a little crash course on Stellar, how it works, and some of the features of the technology. 

Stellar is a cryptocurrency-adjacent technology. Similar to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, it’s a system for sending and processing currencies digitally. 

Unlike Bitcoin, however, the value of Stellar is not in its bespoke currency. Stellar is not trying to get users to invest in “the coin of the future.” Instead, it’s a tool for facilitating transactions in any fiat currency digitally. Kind of like PayPal, but simpler, faster, and more affordable. 

To be clear, Stellar does have its own cryptocurrency: Lumens. However, this is only used to initialize accounts and make transactions.

Why are custodial solutions important for Crypto-related businesses?

Over the last few years, it’s become clear that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology represents one of the best opportunities, both for the market at large and specifically for financial institutions. 

But with this opportunity comes a substantial amount of risk. It’s an innovative technology in the financial sector, which has made it a target for fraud. Additionally, a lack of knowledge on the part of individuals has led to people using it or avoiding it without fully understanding how it works. 

This post will cover the differences between custodial and non-custodial crypto wallet solutions and how each can help institutions provide security to their customers.

IoT innovation: what’s behind the rise of IoT & how CKL approaches IoT development

IoT technology has been steadily emerging for the last decade. But in the coming years, it’s poised to take over big time.

With the network of devices expanding and becoming more commonplace in daily settings, the interconnected “world of the future” is shaping up around us. And it’s this rapid IoT transformation that’s paving the way for new innovations and possibilities — as well as fresh competitive advantage for brands who jump on board.

The outsourced development team: a startup’s secret weapon

“Time is money” for every business. When you’re a startup, though, the truth behind this saying can be brutal. For funded startups, every cent (and by extension, every second) really, truly counts. And for those startups that are bootstrapping from their own pocket, well, you see the point here.

Most startups begin with a skeleton crew of passionate individuals. And that’s great for securing initial investment. To grow, though, you need to bring in the necessary talent — and you need to do it fast.

Let’s say you need to get to market with a digital product and you needed to do it yesterday. Should you speed through the recruitment progress and put together an in-house team? Or is leaning on the skills and experience of an outsourced development partner the smarter way to go?
