Before Jed McCaleb changed the world with stellar, he created Edonkey 2000, this was a peer-to-peer file sharing Network. Edonkey 2000 implemented multi-source downloading and the first implementation of the Kademlia DHT, this was not done by anyone else. Jed McCaleb is somebody who has a passion for improving Technologies, as well as improving the world. McCaleb States, “I’ve always spent a lot of time thinking about how to improve technologies, and how to use these technologies to improve the world.”
