At Cheesecake Labs we’ve recently become an integration partner with Stellar and have been excitedly diving into Stellar development. We’ve had to learn all about the technology from Stellar’s engineering and business teams in order to help our clients leverage Stellar’s blockchain. So we’ve put together a little crash course on Stellar, how it works, and some of the features of the technology.
Stellar is a cryptocurrency-adjacent technology. Similar to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, it’s a system for sending and processing currencies digitally.
Unlike Bitcoin, however, the value of Stellar is not in its bespoke currency. Stellar is not trying to get users to invest in “the coin of the future.” Instead, it’s a tool for facilitating transactions in any fiat currency digitally. Kind of like PayPal, but simpler, faster, and more affordable.
To be clear, Stellar does have its own cryptocurrency: Lumens. However, this is only used to initialize accounts and make transactions.

Clutch is one of the most respected authorities for assessment of software design and engineering companies. It’s a name you’ll surely have heard of more than once — perhaps you’ve even left a review for a supplier or collaborator on the Clutch website?
If so, you may also know that, each year, Clutch assesses and analyzes tens of thousands of mobile and web app development companies across the world. The result is a definite ranking of the best design and development partners based on unbiased, real-life client reviews, as well as other quantitative and qualitative measures.
This year, close to 22,000 companies were in the running, but only a handful of them could be named the best of the best. And Cheesecake Labs is right up there in the top 10.
It’s not easy building and nurturing a hybrid-remote team; you need to put equal time and effort into the personal and professional development of every employee. Because when you do, talent may just flourish from the most unexpected — and untrained! — places.
That’s exactly what happened when Diego Almeida de Oliveira first came to Cheesecake Labs in 2017. Over 3 and a half years, Diego grew from an intern — or “Cupcaker”, as we like to say — to one of CKL’s most highly-skilled and well-respected Senior Android Engineers, delivering delightful mobile apps to clients as Tapcart and Singularity University.
