Why did Jed McCaleb leave Ripple to start Stellar

Recommended Posts

Now let's stellar and ripple reunite? That would be something!

Btw, I don't see any post from Jed on this quora, maybe the website is not up-to-date for me or am I missing somehting?

May be a great article but:

Quote

[Jed McCaleb] is precisely the sort of ‘surfer-dude man-child’ coders regard as a demigod.

As a coder, I do not regard any sort of 'man-child' as an object of worship and this way of writing about the industry stinks.

no, nothing I guess the cms cloud (or whatever it is called) is not up to date in my region.

Anyway I agree about the title of the topic it's not a war, I wish they work all together finally. They're doing the exact same thing, just let the egos behind.

It's a comment on David's answer.

I'm not sure about the accuracy of the article, but it does give an insight to the initial problems for Ripple and the personalities involved. Accurate or not, this is going to be the basis for the  perception that many will have and now I have a better understanding of perhaps why the FI's are finding it difficult to embrace the new technology - not just doubt about the tech, but huge doubts about the stability of some of the key people involved. I will read this again. Ripple must have had a mountain to climb to gain some semblance of legitimacy after such a wobbly start, and all I can see is that they have done a great job. I still don't know how Stellar is having the impact with the FI's - McCaleb must indeed be a charismatic genius

ps Why reunite when you know that behind the genius lies such instability, let alone a reputation that does not seem to stand up to scrutiny. That will be the signal for me to get out of XRP

That article starts out saying that they want top replace both Bitcoin and the Dollar, neither are true.

Jed seems to have a decent sized internet support group for whatever reason, not sure if he is, or stellar is, hyping hime for whatever reason.

There is a video on youtube where the host babbles about how great Jed is, saying that everything he does is good, and somehow they manage to spin his connect to MT Gox as a good thing.  At some point and time, the crypto, banking, and IT world will realize his true colors.
