- Stellar Lumens (XLM) rally, add 55.6 percent
- The network failed for two hours on May-15
Stellar’s validator nodes “trust” the SDF nodes. Because of that, there was a failure, and the system couldn’t reach consensus for two hours on May-15. At the moment, XLM is under pressure but up 18.8 percent in the last day.
Stellar Lumens (XLM) Price Analysis
In the words of Yorke Rhodes, development around blockchain feels like it is back to 1995. Then, the internet had little interest to the average consumer. Fast forward, 19 years later, and Web-1 is indispensable. Everyone can be a publisher in this decentralized web where communication is seamless.
Now, it’s blockchain’s turn, and as the world readies for “investment,” Stellar is laying down the infrastructure. The native currency, XLM, fulfills the same functions as XRP, a coin that is embroiled in controversies, struggling to clear the centralization and security tag. However, it is XLM that is under investor’s radar.
Aside from influential partners in IBM, Coinbase is airdropping the coin increasing demand for the asset. At the same time, XLM did draw some momentum from the “Coinbase effect” following its listing at the American exchange.
All the same, XLM did crumble for some hours today following a freeze in the network. For two hours on May-15, the platform couldn’t reach consensus meaning no transactions were validated, because, one Redditor said “most validators on the network, if not all of them, trust SDF nodes. So that means that SDF validators are needed for the network to reach consensus.” In his explanation, Jed McCaleb, co-founder of Stellar, said:
“Over the last months, we have worked to get people to not depend on the SDF nodes. As of maybe a month or so ago the SDF nodes could safely go down and the network would continue. However, this also means that the network can halt even if the SDF nodes are still running. Unfortunately, this is what happened.”
With a pin-bar and zero-support, Stellar (XLM) is melting. Even so, it is up 18.8 percent in the last 24 hours and a massive 55.6 percent from last week’s close. At the back of this is a humongous bull bar marking the entry of buyers, thrusting above a 5-month resistance level at 13 cents.
Because of yesterday’s event and volumes behind the breakout bar, every low dip should be a buying opportunity with the first target at 18 cents. That will be a retest of Q2 2018 lows. Nonetheless, any blast above 20 cents could see XLM rally to 30 cents.
On the flip side, should today’s overvaluation spur a sell-off below 11 cents and 8 cents with high participation, our bullish outlook would be null.
From the chart, prices were mostly ranging with caps at 13 cents and floors at 8 cents. After May 15th’s bull bar — 5 million versus 1 million, any bar cementing buyers above 13 cents ought to be with equally high volumes above 5 million.

Stellar (XLM) Price Analysis
The price of Stellar has reached the demand zone of $0.070 price level. The $0.070 support level is holding as the bulls struck an upward move to the previous high. In the previous low of July 16, the $0.080 support level was held as the bulls claimed an upward move but were resisted at the $0.10 price level.
This resistance resulted in the price to fall to the present low at $0.072 but before the support level at $0.070 price level. Today, the coin is testing the $0.080 resistance level; if the bulls break the initial resistance level, XLM’s price will rise and reach a high of $0.09 price level. On the other side, if the bulls break above the $0.09 price level, the crypto will continue its upward move.
Chart Indicators Reading
Meanwhile, the XLM price is out of the oversold region of the Stochastic indicator, and it is above the 25% range. This indicates that buyers are likely to emerge, and it also shows a bullish signal. The bulls break the lower trend line, and the candlestick closed on the above it.
This is an indication that the bullish trend is likely to continue. The 12-day alongside 26-day EMA is still trending and pointing southward (indicating the downward direction). On the other side, if the bulls manage to break above the EMAs, the cryptocurrency’s price will be in the bullish trend zone.
General Outlook for XLM
The coin is likely to rise if the bulls manage to sustain the price above the lower trend line. Similarly, if the bulls break the initial resistance at the $0.08 price level, Stellar (XLM) will continue the bullish movement. On the other hand, if the bears break below the lower trend line again, the market will resume its downward trend.

Stellar releases key updates as Saldo.mx plans to issue an asset on Stellar Network
Stellar, currently ranked 11th in the crypto rankings with a market cap of $1.5 billion, recently revealed the developments undertaken over the past month.
Stellar released a plethora of updates in the month of July, which included the likes of the Horizon 0.19.0, Stellar Core v.11.3.0 and the Stellar Ticker v.1.1.0. The community also managed to successfully reset the Stellar test network which took place on July 31, at 09:00 UTC.
In keeping with the progress on the technical front, Stellar was currently being used by Saldo.mx, a platform facilitating cross-border payments in Latin America. Marco Montes Neri, co-founder of Saldo.mx, recently explained that the company was issuing an asset on the Stellar network that was pegged to the Mexican peso.
“In order to transform how remittances work, we need these irreversibility and transparency that open ledgers like Stellar offer. Stellar is very optimized for payments. We don’t need smart contracts, complex capabilities, but we need efficiency.”
Personalities associated with Stellar were also active as Denelle Dixon, CEO of the Stellar Development Foundation releases a medium post about blockchain policy.
In her article, Dixon spoke on a collective basis for blockchain and virtual assets and indicated that currently there was a “confusion, misinformation, and concern” regarding using blockchain and crypto for payments. She said,
“We want to help clear up confusion and alleviate concerns through engagement with the ecosystem, policymakers, and regulators alike. For us, success would be a shared understanding about the application of existing rules and a clear idea of where new rules may be necessary.”
