Decentralize This! — Episode 33: John Wolpert
Embracing the Boring to Build a Stateful, Decentralized Internet
“The way I see it is — if you can’t send your data to Burning Man, don’t put it on any kind of blockchain. Blockchains, both private and public, are digital nudist colonies.”

John currently works at ConsenSys on the Web3Studio team, helping drive adoption of the decentralized web by identifying and building solutions using decentralized technologies. John has decades of entrepreneurial experience and previously co-founded IBM’s blockchain business unit as well as Hyperledger Fabric. He also currently helps lead the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance’s Mainnet Working Group, where Enigma is a contributing member.
On Decentralize This!, we feature guests from around the blockchain and decentralization space. By taking a closer look at what prominent people are building and thinking about, we hope to find new ways to work together on creating solutions and getting these new technologies adopted at scale.
On this episode, John talks about why the world needs a single “mainnet”, how to “embrace the boring” with blockchain, the new relationship between public and private blockchains, the importance of protecting sensitive data and business logic, and why everyone should get on board the “Magic Bus”.
