The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) released its Q1 2021 review. A few of the highlights include launching USDC on the Stellar network, Enterprise Fund investments in Wyre, Cowrie Integrated Systems, and DSTOQ. Release of Horizon 2.0 was also a notable achievement.

Lastly, Craig McGregor, CEO and Co-Founder of DSTOQ, discusses the case study on DSTOQ and how it uses tokenization and digital asset issuance on Stellar to make investing accessible to anyone with a mobile phone.
