Stellar Lumens grow over 15% today
Stellar Lumens had a nice growth today. XLM gained the 5th place in the cryptocurrency field for a few hours with a 26% increase since yesterday, making EOS fall on the 6th place for a while. The price dropped a few percents since then and its currency sitting at a 17% increase on the 6th spot. A reason why this might happen was the news regarding Stellar SMS Gateway.
