For the most part, we think that decentralization is bigger/more interesting than blockchain, and that blockchain is bigger/more interesting than cryptocurrencies and tokens.

When I joined Storj Labs as executive chairman and interim CEO earlier this year, it was because of the opportunity I saw in decentralization and its ability to help the world and disrupt major industries. Storj had a working platform, a passionate community, a solid team, and were solving a huge problem tied into several trends. Before joining, I had spent the last decade building two open source companies. Storj (and decentralized infrastructure in general) shares a lot of key values with the open source world.
