One of the main issues I have with Blockchain transfers is knowing the recipient’s account number, however one the ways Stellar handles this is by allowing users to create their own federation servers, which help to translate the user name into a valid account number. Taking the user name, which looks somewhat like an email, and transforming it into a long string of letters and numbers.
- Built with Go.

- Uses the Stellar Network Foundation protocol.
- Dynamic Memo support

- Supports multiple federation domains per servers

In the future I would like to expand this service as the protocol evolves.
