McCaleb is the former CTO of Ripple. He co-founded OpenCoin (Ripple's former name) and then left to try out his own ideas and ended up creating Stellar, a Ripple rival that targets financial institutions with its XLM coin.
However, he and Ripple signed a settlement agreement and, for his role as a Ripple founder, Ripple has been making regular XRP payments to McCaleb.
Jed McCaleb is also known as the founder of the troublesome Mt. Gox exchange.
