In a recent interview, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (Woz) said he would participate in a Crypto startup. At the same time, he talked about the virtual currencies and why he is eager about their potential in the future. He compares the Crypto world to the internet in its early years.
Apple’s Wozniak Has Never Seen Such A Technology As Cryptocurrency
Steve Wozniak has said that he likes being updated at an interview at Chainxchange blockchain convention. Consequently, he is now attracted to Cryptocurrencies and believes they have great potential in the future. The 68-year-old is a prominent computer engineer who worked with Steve Jobs to establish Apple.
Wozniak said that he was first attracted to the Cryptocurrency world by Bitcoin. He notes that he observed so many unusual things that he has never seen with any other technology before. He said that the creator of the new technology is not known and that it is not controlled by any central authority. Moreover, the currency is based on mathematics and the number of Bitcoins that can be in circulation is known.
Computer Revolutionary Sees Cryptocurrencies As Things Of Nature
Woz has a long history in the technology world as he worked closely with Steve Jobs. In 1976, the two close friends founded Apple, which has become one of the most successful technology companies in history. Whereas Mr. Jobs dealt with entrepreneurial aspects like financing and marketing, Woz was in the technology sector establishing personal computing revelations.
Together with Mr. Jobs, Woz built Apple from its early years to 1981. By 1985, Woz had left Apple in a more-or-less permanent way. Since leaving the tech giant, he has been into other things like philanthropic work. He is also the man behind the invention of Universal Remote. Some time back, he hosted music shows. Currently, many view him as an ambassador of computing in its early days.
Woz admitted he is a natural mathematician and that is why he admires Bitcoin. Specifically, he loves the Cryptocurrency because he trusts things that are of nature than those made up by men. For instance, the fiat currencies are made and controlled by the government. Every year, governments issue new currencies and Bitcoin is immune to such subjections.
Wozniak Compares The Crypto World With The Internet In The Early Years
Woz said that the Cryptocurrency space is so independent. He compares to the internet when emerged and admits he is amazed by the technology. He added that people invent things that end up doing other things for the benefit of all of us. During the interview, he said he has come across people working in different sectors such a real estate, the transport sector, manufacturing, and Cryptocurrencies among others which all have value. As far as Cryptocurrencies are concerned, he says the few people who don’t see their value remind him of the internet in the early days.
Woz’s comments about the Cryptocurrencies are especially important to the visionaries, and current builders and investors in the sector. His vast experience in the internet sector can enable him to predict the future of an emerging technology and not be distracted by the opinion of the naysayers.
