Stellar — What’s in your Wallet?
“What does it actually mean to “hold” your Lumens in a Stellar wallet? This post is meant to shed some light on what your wallet actually does for you and how it does it, including some ways that wallets secure your Lumens.”
How to deploy a Stellar validator on Kubernetes with Helm
“In the following sections of this article, we are going to guide developers through the process of standing up a Stellar validator node that can join the Stellar Testnet. We will demonstrate the steps to deploy these services to Kubernetes (here: IBM Cloud and Google Cloud) using Helm as well as some basic examples to verify the system syncs successfully with the network. With the strong industry interest in tokens and Stellar, we hope these Helm charts can accelerate your deployments.”
