Swanky SWIFT Event Sweats as Heat Applied by Cooler Swell

http://observer.com/2017/10/toronto-fintech-conferences-swift-swell-ripple/amp/


The IBM-Stellar deal raised some eyebrows because of the erratic past behavior of Stellar’s founder, Jed McCaleb, who was also the founder of Mt Gox, which turned into bitcoin’s biggest ever fraud, and then co-founded Ripple but was expelled by the board for installing his girlfriend as an executive with no clear portfolio.

IBM is trying hard to make a name for itself in the blockchain space, but this partnership has people puzzled in Toronto. One leading ethereum developer told the Observer, “It’s an also-ran tech company choosing an also-ran token.”

Pressed for an explanation, another developer—a key industry figure and leading cryptographer, who did not want to be identified criticizing a prominent player in the space—detailed to the Observer what he feels is lacking in Stellar.

“It has tech flaws and it has market issues. The tech flaws are that Stellar is hopelessly centralized. They are completely centralized without a plan to decentralize. Worse, their method of adding validators [the mechanism that “unmined currencies” like XRP and XLM use to preserve the integrity of their blockchains] prevents new validators from joining in a meaningful way. New validators become simply trusted repeaters of what Jed says rather than independent validators. In short, they’re effectively stuck as a centralized currency unless they change their fundamental software. So they’ve had zero closed ledgers as a decentralized system, [which means it is] untested. Second, no progress has been made in scaling their blockchain.”...............

^^^^^No doubt banks, corps, and cryptos feel a big threat by IBM and Stellar.
Jeb sold Mt.Gox before the new owners ran it into the ground.

Chuck Adams - "IBM is helping farmers and small businesses in underdeveloped countries participate in global trade. They were not able to before blockchain technology. This payment system using Stellar in already at work in 12 different regions across the Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. It will be completely replacing the currencies of smaller places like Samoan tala. I find people in the crypto space do not understand just how big specific platforms like Stellar will be. It's worth hundreds of billions if it accomplishes what it sets out to do. With IBM leading it, I have no doubt it will succeed. $10 is cheap".

IBM will use Stellar blockchain and XLM for the transactions, at least for a while. They might, or might not, develop their own solutions in the future, but to be honest I don't necessarily see them doing that if and when everything goes smoothly with Stellar and if Stellar will develop in a way that benefits IBM as well.

It (IBM) will apparently process some 60 percent of all international payments in the South Pacific, using Lumens for payments, which are then converted into local currency by market makers.

This is so cool. I really hope they think it's not worth it to develop their own anytime soon.

IBM seems ahead of the game. They recognize the benefits of this sort of tech and aren't afraid to be the first to stick their nose out there. I think this is going to pay off for them (and us) big time.

IBM is always ahead of the game. They were making computers in the 1930s...

Some might say IBM is a dinosaur, but they don't know all the technology they provide on the back-end to many banks and companies.
Don't count IBM out, their decision on Stellar tells the world they've been plotting quietly behind the scenes.

IBM chose Stellar.org for their platform.
IBM DID NOT choose Lisk, Ethereum, Stratis, NEO, Ark, NEM, or any of the other hundreds of cryptos available to them.

Long on XLM.

Wow having IBM on board is some exciting development.

I am glad to be in with some ETH and really looking forward to seeing how that story goes on!

Neither. Been around a while, just getting some positive attention.
