Stellar is a decentralized protocol for sending and receiving money in any pair of currencies. This means users can, for example, send a transaction from their Yen balance and have it arrive in Euros, Yen, or even bitcoin. We’re expecting to support the usual categories of transactions: payments to a merchant, remittances back home, or rent splits with a roommate.
You can hold a balance with a gateway, which is any network participant you trust to accept a deposit in exchange for credit on the network. Stellar also comes with a built-in digital currency, referred to as the stellar, which we’re giving away for free. The currency will have value (as determined by the market); however, its primary function is providing a conversion path between other currencies.
We hope that people will build applications on top of Stellar to help bridge the gap between digital and traditional currencies.
By the way, they give you 600 Stellars for free, when you register.
Also, you make first training transaction in amount of 100 Stellars, and they return this amount back to you.
So, if you will be looking for a good name to send training 100, mvkozyrev will be a good name :))
