@abiekatz Seems like Stellar is just a pure fork of Ripple but without the all the issues Ripple had with founders owning all the XRP (and the negative sentiment that created).

@abiekatz three biggest differences: 1) its backed by a non-profit 2) 95% of the STR are being given away for free and 3) 1% new currency generated each year, distributed by voting.
