Stellar Lumens Has Entered Bull Territory

To say that XLM is in a bull market right now could be a call a little too early. However, Mr. Hellman seems convinced that cryptocurrency is on the rise.

Also, Hellman said that there would be some short-term volatility because of some crucial fundamental news.
