Jed McCaleb’s Stellar Prediction

Jed McCaleb works for Steller as their Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer. However, he’s known for his early work in the digital financial world. His experience and current position give credence to his new prediction. Jed McCaleb says that a universal ledger is not far away, and he is already making plans for it.

Background

His technical background is extensive. Jed McCaleb produced one of the first programs similar to Dropbox as early as 2000. This was pioneering work. He also founded the Mt. Gox Bitcoin Exchange, MetaMachine, Code Collective, and Ripple. After founding Ripple, he went on to become an advisor for the Machine Intelligence Research Institute and remains an advisor to this day. He then founded Steller, his newest technology company. There, Jed McCaleb builds systems that are decentralized so they can be leveraged to improve the human condition.

Financial Prediction

In a recent article, Jed McCaleb stated that he believes there will be a universal payments network in the future. His work in the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology leads him to believe that stocks and fundraising will be affected by this as well. He is using Steller to create a network of currency exchange that he says is 5 seconds faster than Bitcoin’s. IBM is currently using this network.

Jed McCaleb also said he knows there’s an entire market of token sales that aren’t being utilized by the financial industry. These token sales are also known as initial coin offerings. There’s been many coin offerings over the past four years. They amount to the equivalent of over nine billion dollars, to be exact. Regulators have noticed the fraud possible with these offerings and fundraisers, however, this is nothing new to the financial industry. Supporters of token sales believe this is a new and better way to invest and raise funds.

Jed McCaleb has been a pioneer in his line of work. He created many successful companies that have changed the technological and financial worlds. The coins used by Stellar are called Lumens. They reached the top ten cryptocurrencies by late 2017. If his past is any sign, Jed McCaleb will continue innovating and breaking through the financial box for many years to come.

Deadpool Visits The Late Show

Stephen Colbert had a surprise guest this week on his The Late Show with Stephen Colbert: the Merc with the Mouth himself, Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds. Taking over Colbert’s monologue, Deadpool at first mockingly mistook him for fellow late-night host Jimmy Fallon before advising the comedian to never invite Ryan Reynolds for an interview, saying, “I’ll tell you who should not be on your show: Ryan Reynolds…He’s like a poor man’s version of Ryan Reynolds.” Deadpool then joked about President Donald Trump and his son Eric, much to the audience’s laughter. Before going to a commercial break, Deadpool faded away, supposedly killed by Avengers: Infinity War villain Thanos.

 

Reynolds’ appearance in character as Deadpool marks another incidence of the longstanding association of Colbert with Marvel Entertainment. Following the Death of Captain America story arc in 2007, Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada gave Colbert the duty of protecting Steve Rogers’ star-spangled shield, calling him “the most patriotic man in America.” During the 2008 election, Colbert ran for President of the United States in the Marvel Universe. Featured in the background of many issues of The Amazing Spider-Man, Colbert was shown to win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College to Barack Obama.

 

The unusual way that Reynolds appeared on The Late Show is part of the unique marketing campaign that has been undertaken for Deadpool 2. As with his appearance on Colbert’s show, Reynolds also appeared as Deadpool on the December 2017 issue of Good Housekeeping, giving advice on how to “put the fun back in dysfunctional” during the holiday season. In addition to Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Josh Brolin and Morena Baccarin and premieres May 18.

Donald Glover could get his own “Star Wars” film

Donald Glover’s already hot career is about to launch into space, according to IndieWire.

Glover plays a young Lando Calrissian in the new “Star Wars” spinoff, “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Billy Dee Williams originated the character in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi.”

According to Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, who was speaking to the media at the Cannes Film Festival, Glover’s version of Calrissian could soon get his own standalone film.

“We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian,” Kennedy said. “Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next.”

In April, Glover revealed to Esquire that he signed a three-picture deal with Lucasfilm. The first picture in the deal was “Solo,” but it’s not clear if the remaining two will focus on Calrissian. Currently, there are plans for at least two more “Solo” films, so he could also appear in one of those to complete his contract.

So far, reviews for “Solo,” which stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, have been largely positive. However, even lukewarm reviews have pointed to Glover’s interpretation of Lando Calrissian as a highlight of the film. This positive buzz has led to hopes that the “Atlanta” star will get his own “Star Wars” film.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens in theaters nationwide on May 25.
