The Man Behind Stellar – Jed McCaleb

Humble Beginnings

Jed McCaleb is a renown programmer and blockchain cryptocurrency expert. Jed McCaleb’s story begins with being the driving force behind Mt. Gox, the first Bitcoin exchange worldwide and eDonkey. Jed is the first to create a decentralize peer sharing file network and the first to create a multi-source downloading system.

What is Jed Up to Now?

In 2014 Jed McCaleb started a new concept and idea for the digital currency. Jed along with Joyce Kim, have created Stellar to change the world of the universal financial network of inclusion. With his success from Bitcoin, Jed McCaleb is now using programming to take Stellar beyond its predecessor. Jed noticed how Bitcoin was ahead of its time for moving finances; but it had one major flaw, the flaw of inclusion. Stellar will change the game completely by having within its programming the ability for institutions (financial) to link up together.

Stellar’s Job and Its Future

Jed McCaleb’s plan is to have Stellar connect the currently unbanked populous around the world to link up to an institution that is currently on Stellar’s platform. To do this, Jeb also plans to make it maintenance fees more affordable by tying together isolated institutions together so that they can offer their services at a reasonable and marketable level. By doing this Stellar will offer a cheaper and streamline money transfer platform.

Currently Stellar is used in multiple financial infrastructures across the world; from businesses to non-profit organizations. Jed McCaleb and his group have tweaked Stellar’s programming to make it more user friendly. In addition, the Stellar platform is a community-based platform that allows the users to be in control. Stellar’s platform creates an operating system that is not internally controlled by the Stellar Organization.

Why is Jed McCaleb Such a Success?

Jed believes that having a complete strategic plan, will always generate success. He believes in focusing on the importance of a goal versus the productivity of that goal. He looks at the big picture and how each part affects the next. Jed does not believe in distractions, but he does believe in the grand scale and how it impacts things globally. Lastly, overcoming obstacles in his life has played a major role in his success as a business entrepreneur.

Inspired to launch his own cabinet manufacturing company by working for another cabinet company, Corsi sought to head up a company that was completely focused on the designer. The Corsi Group still has a location in Indianapolis, opened a second location in Elkins, WV in 2000, and most recently, in 2015, a third location in Keysville, Virginia. The Keysville location serves as the headquarters for the group’s newest brand, Siteline Cabinerys. Keysville, while not as famous as its neighboring cities of Richmond and Lynchburg, was chosen by Corsi for its strategic geographical location, the buying power of the millennials that call Keysville home, as well as the growth of the local market.

In a world that is inundated with customized home improvement, do it yourself projects, and becoming the Chip and Joanna Gaines of your own home, a company that customizes cabinets to the homeowner’s specification was almost certainly bound to be a success. Siteline Cabinetry allows each client to make their home exactly what they want it to be regarding storage space in the kitchen, bathroom, closets, and laundry rooms.

Siteline’s business model hinges on their made to order capabilities.

This made to order model also cuts down considerably on the time it takes to fill orders, as instead of having the team of dedicated cabinet makers tied up on stock projects, as soon as a design is submitted, the team can quickly execute and satisfy the orders that come in to their shop.

Obviously, kitchen cabinets are the most heavily sought-after cabinets in any home construction or renovation. Siteline prides itself on offering a variety of assorted styles of cabinets (shaker style, personalized, high-tech), in addition to offering multiple options in color, functionality, purpose, and directional orientation. A potential Siteline customer would be hard pressed to come up with a cabinet design idea that the team of cabinetry experts at Siteline could not make a reality. Most recently, Siteline has perfected a full-access cabinet option, made of glass, that they are offering in clear or translucent.

Siteline Cabinetry prides itself on the ability to customize any cabinet, of any size, for any home. Driven by over four decades of designer-centric thinking, Siteline Cabinetry seeks to offer each customer the cabinets as unique, and beautiful as they deserve.
