Stellar (XLM) and Ripple’s XRP are two competing cryptocurrencies that both provide real-time payment settlement platforms and aim to establish a global blockchain payments network for the world’s financial institutions to run on.

Moreover, according to Stellar CTO Nicolas Barry who spoke with crypto news outlet The Block, the Stellar network shut down because it’s being too decentralized too fast, and the system did the right thing by halting the network.

However, many people including the industry expert above will argue that this shutdown represents major flaws to Stellar’s protocol and puts Ripple’s XRP as the front running payment network protocol.
