Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, took part in an exclusive interview at the conference ChainXchange and talked about his attitude towards Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general and also shared his plans for the blockchain technology:
“I like to keep up with things… Bitcoin caught my attention. It had so many unusual aspects for any technology I had ever heard of. Nobody is really known to be the creator. It doesn’t have any centralized [component]. It’s based on mathematics. There’s a certain number of Bitcoin that can ever exist… Mathematics to me is like nature. It’s much better than human beings… I trust those things of nature more than what man makes up. Man makes up currencies, controls them, issues new US dollars every year; Bitcoin was immune to that.”
We want to point out that the famous American inventor, electronic engineer and programmer was not particularly interested in the subject of cryptocurrency in the fall of 2017 and even sold all his Bitcoins. Back then he found that cryptocurrencies only brought “anxiety”, but now, he seems to have learnt more things about the advantage of the blockchain technology:
“At first I kept hearing [about blockchain], and I didn’t understand it. It’s not something you understand in a day. You think about it, read more about it and how it works, and then you see how people actually start to use it, through the mining process and also the verification and, aha! It all adds up!” said Wozniak.
After that, the co-founder of Apple made a sensational statement: he himself is going to start working with blockchain. According to him, this will happen “very soon”, the project is likely to be launched in Malta:
“I’m involved with, very soon, my first time being involved in a blockchain company. [It’s] called Equi… Our approach is not like a new currency, or something phony where an event will make it go up in value. It’s a share of stock, in a company. This company is doing investment by investors with huge track records in good investments in things like apartment buildings in Dubai. We have one person in our group who has listed out a whole apartment building for Bitcoin… We might be starting up in Malta around the time of their blockchain conference. Some countries are very positive about [blockchain]the same way they were about electric vehicles.”
