Stellar Addresses

Like most blockchain based digital currencies Stellar has a public and a private key.  The public key always starts with ‘G’.  The private (or secret or seed) key always starts with ‘S’.


One other unique item is that Stellar accounts must be created and funded from another account before it can be used.  Just having a public/private key pair is not enough to use the account, it must be created first.

As of January 30th, 2018 there have been 308510 accounts created.
