Jed McCaleb: About

Hi, I’m Jed McCaleb. Recognizing that the world’s financial infrastructure is broken and that too many people are left without resources, Joyce Kim and I cofounded Stellar Development Foundation in 2014. At, I’m spending an insane number of hours with the smartest people I’ve ever worked with.

My background

Before cofounding Stellar I made eDonkey2000, an early peer to peer file sharing network. It was the first to implement multi-source downloading and the first implementation of the Kademlia DHT.

I’ve always spent a lot of time thinking about how to improve technologies, and how to use these technologies to improve the world.
