The principle of its work is based on the multiple operation of peers and distribution of resources between all servers of the network. All servers are tied to a single source.

The autonomous work of every peer allows to avoid a global malperformance if one of the elements fails.

There is an interesting fact about Stellar’s functioning: let’s assume that you send dollars to a person, but he wants to get lumens rather than dollars. There is an option for every user to choose what kind of currency to receive, despite of the initial one. Therefore, at Stellar, the difference between traditional money and cryptocurrencies disappears.
