Stellar is trying to help more people from all over the world to do interbank transactions without having to pay high fees and providing access to the financial world to those who don't have a bank account.
I think the idea is very simple but it's not anything ground-breaking. I do like the fact they are a non-profit since it's different, to me is very rare to see this in the crypto world.
In short, this looks like an altruistic and decentralized version of Ripple, but instead of aiming to help banks, Stellar aims to help people.
I currently don't hold any Stellar Lumens, but I would be interested in getting some.
