Jed McCaleb is an entrepreneur who was one of the pioneers of blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency bitcoin which is based on it. He created Mt. Gox which was the first place that people could buy and sell bitcoin to others. He is now working on a different cryptocurrency called Stellar. He co-founded Stellar Development Foundation in 2014. He has said that in his opinion blockchain is going to create a universal payments network that anyone can use.
At Stellar, Jed McCaleb is the chief technology officer. He is designing a network which will allow people to use Stellar to make cross-border payments. He thinks that cryptocurrencies are just getting their start and blockchain technology will be used in the future for other financial transactions, such as the stock market. He says the advantage of blockchain is that it involves a public ledger that everyone can see for themselves. Blockchains can’t be arbitrarily changed by anyone and he thinks that in the future nation’s currencies will be based on it including the EU’s euro and the American dollar.
Jed McCaleb says that, unlike bitcoin, Stellar transactions are very fast. He has the transaction settlement times down to five seconds or less. Bitcoin transactions take far longer than that to the point where it’s not all that useful in the real world. Stellar also lets people quickly and easily exchange Stellar cryptocurrency to government-backed currency.
When talking about stocks and other equities, Jed McCaleb says that it would come as no surprise to him if within a decade they are based on blockchain technology. He says this would likely necessitate taking a decentralized exchanges approach as any centrally controlled exchange would likely be overloaded.
It was in 2011 that Jed McCaleb decided to sell Mt. Gox to someone else in the cryptocurrency industry, Mark Karpeles. It was long after he had sold this exchange that it was hacked and had millions stolen from it resulting in its bankruptcy. Meanwhile, as of the end of 2017 Stellar is one of the 10 biggest cryptocurrencies in the world.
A couple of years ago, people had no idea of what an ICO is. Today the trading scene is vastly different, and this kind of transactions happen more and more often. Monkey Capital is a company that invests in SpaceX supply contracts and Blockchain systems and try to predict how this that or another cryptocurrency is going to do in the market. They recently sold options before the funding round.
Modern Trade and AltCoins
COEVAL options were in business and coped rather well while the talks with investors were underway. Their CEO, Daniel Mark Harrison, is quite a whiz when it comes to transactions like this. His company is a talent pool of smart and efficient managers and people who can spot a good business venture miles away. They work with companies like Tesla and Hydrogen Cars while on the side making investments in Blockchain options to make Ethereum -style profit. The market is buzzing about the enterprise.
Cryptocurrencies are still on the rise, and new ones are coming out every month if not more often. How well they do depends on the market and the marketing. The crowdfunding campaign is still on its way, but it looks like Monkey Capital will break quite a few records. The prediction is that they will break the billion dollar line. They would be the first company who has managed to have a ten digit crowdfunding campaign with enormous success.
Personal Touch and Education
Daniel Mark Harrison is more than just a CEO. His family owns a global investment company with offices outside the US. He gathered experience while working for the enterprise. He is the Chairman and CEO of DMH&Co, a company that is growing his assets and looking after estates of the Harrison family. He also fills the shoes of the Editor in Chief of Coinspeak, with a 450 thousand people monthly readership.
Daniel Mark Harrison knows how important education is to young people who want to venture into business. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and two Master’s degrees. Norwegian Business School and New York University helped him receive Masters in Business Administration and Management, and New York in Journalism.
