When it comes to Stellar (XLM), the coin is quite old, and it pre-dates Ethereum by over a year. However, it did not start getting attention until mid-2017, which is when it finally grew from $0.002 to a more reasonable price. Its first big move up came in May 2017, when it climbed up to $0.05. After that, it dropped once more, before starting to grow again in October of the same year. On October 2nd, 2017 — Stellar's price was $0.01. Only three months later, on January 4th, 2018, it exceeded $0.9. This was a major change for Stellar, but unfortunately, it did not last.
Stellar in 2018
The bear market of 2018 knocked down the prices of coins quite a bit, and Stellar did not escape it. After reaching its all-time high on January 4th, as mentioned earlier, the coin spent the following months dropping, and breaking one support after another. In fact, it kept going down until it hit $0.2, which acted as its major support for the rest of the year.
Meanwhile, its largest resistance sat at $0.4, although as time moved on, each new attempt to even reach this resistance became weaker than the previous one. Eventually, as 2018 was coming to a close, Stellar's attempts at a surge ended by reaching a smaller resistance level at $0.25, while its support at $0.2 still managed to hold it.
