CashNotify for Stellar

Introducing our first new payment provider.

Mar 14, 2018

CashNotify is officially 1 year old today 🎉! In one year, the app evolved a lot and now helps hundreds of entrepreneurs keep an eye on their Stripe accounts.

Today, we’re excited to tell you that we’ve been working on adding new payment providers to CashNotify. The first one is Stellar.

What is Stellar?

The Stellar network is a decentralized payments platform. It’s fast, reliable, and the fees are so low that they’re almost inexistent.

The network has its own digital currency, called lumens (XLM).

The team and advisors behind the project are remarkable.


Why Stellar?

Here are the main reasons why we believe in Stellar’s potential:

1. Speed and scalability

Stellar does not suffer from scalability issues like some other decentralized networks. Their live dashboard already shows days at 500,000+ operations.

Network Transaction speed Scalability limit
Bitcoin several minutes 3 to 7 transactions/sec (source)
Ethereum 14 seconds 15 transactions/sec (source)
Stellar 2 to 5 secs 1,000 to 10,000 transactions/sec (source)

2. Transaction fees

The transaction fees on the Stellar network are incredibly low compared to traditional payment providers. Money moves at almost no cost.

Provider Fee per transaction
Stripe 2.9% + $0.30 (source)
Paypal 2.9% + $0.30 (source)
Stellar < $0.00001

3. Developer experience

We’ve been blown away by the quality of the documentation, the API’s design, and the tools for developers. The Stellar platform make us happy to write code.

This makes us believe in the platform’s potential for mass adoption.

4. Partners

The Stellar network is supported by a number of financial institutions, payment aggregators, and technnology companies. The list includes:

  • IBM, who provides parts of the infrastucture
  • Stripe, who is an early investor in Stellar

5. Stellar Build Challenge

Every 3 months, Stellar runs a challenge for creators building on the Stellar platform. It’s a great way to boost the growth of the Stellar ecosystem.

Winners are selected by a panel of judges and awarded prizes in lumens. Here are the winners for the last challenge, and here is our own entry on the forum.

The deadline was an ideal motivation to push ourselves to release a first beta.
