Change the beginning of the README to include the Stellar logo, and Stellar's mission.

This repository is an entry point to external contributions and interest. At GitHub Universe one of the talks I attended talked about how creating an inviting and engaging README makes a huge difference to engaging developers who discover a project. The README was given as an example. Adding our logo and including our mission is just one small thing we can to engage a newcomer.

This same change has been made on some of our other repositories: stellar/go#1948, stellar/stellar-protocol#465, stellar/js-stellar-sdk#459.
