How to buy Stellar Lumens in Canada.

Newton makes it fast and easy to buy, sell and hold Stellar Lumens (XLM) in Canada.

Stellar Lumens (XLM) is a payment technology that powers the Stellar payment network. It aims to connect financial institutions and facilitate cross-border transfers. Instead of requiring mining, XLM uses the Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA) algorithm to enable faster transaction processing since the transactions do not need to be approved by the mining network.

After you've purchased crypto, the next step is to find the best way to secure it.

Wallets are known to offer the best security for your cryptocurrencies. While you have the option of keeping your assets on Newton, Newton is primarily a no-fee cryptocurrency trading platform, and not a wallet service.
