Stellar.org distributes the coins as follows:
50 billion XLM: to be given in small quantities to as many people as possible.
25 billion XLM: to be given to other companies and non-profit organizations to reach people that stellar.org would not otherwise be able to reach through the direct registration program.
20 billion XLM: to give to holders of bitcoins and XRP (see Ripple)
5 billion XLM: retained by Stellar. org for operations.
Stellar allows you to send any currency you hold to someone else in a different currency through the integrated decentralized exchange. People can receive any currency through an anchor they have added.
