Stellar Assets Explained
Stellar assets are different because they are backed directly in the Stellar protocol. This is important because it means that assets are supported by all wallets, right from the beginning. Users can enable support for the most common assets on the network with only a few clicks. Non-native assets transactions are equal to Lumens transactions in everything and are handled in the same way by the network validators, thus they are as secure as native transactions. Finally, because they are part of the protocol, all assets are improved by updates that add new functionality or that improve security (without the headache caused by upgrading smart contracts).
