StellarTerm overview: Start trading on SDEX in seconds

If you’ve been following Stellar ecosystem for a while, you may be already familiar with StellarTerm — gateway to Stellar Decentralized Exchange. Today, we are here to give a little overview for those who are yet to try StellarTerm out.

StellarTerm is an advanced and agile open-source trading client built on top of the Stellar Network.

— Open source and local key storage
