Steve Wozniak on Crypto World: It’s Like Internet When It Was Brand New
August 22, 2018
The recent news broke that Steve Wozniak has claimed his participation at crypto startup. In his interview he shared his ideas about the world of cryptocurrencies.
“I like to keep up with things”.
Wozniak is known in the IT history as the second hand to the business visionary Steve Jobs. They founded Apple, the most valued company ever, in 1876 when Jobs was in charge of entrepreneurial aspects like financing while Wozniak was the braniac and initiated the industry that changed everything. That's what he said when it came to Bitcoin:
“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”.
“It’s kind of like the internet when it was brand new… I was amazed at the technology behind it. People start up companies that do other things in life. I’ve encountered people working in real estate avenues, types of Uber systems, everything we’ve got in our life, especially involving transactions – retail sales, car sales, manufacturing of goods… working on Bitcoin applications… and they all have value. Every single one you hear about, to me, has value…. A few people can see the value, which reminds me very much of the early internet days”.
