Steve Wozniak, Apple Inc’s co-founder, computer engineer and inventor claimed that he trusts bitcoin over the today’s financial system.
‘It’s Kind of Like the Internet’
Explaining, Wozniak expressed his fascination and trust concerning Bitcoin’s underlying technology: “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.”
Wozniak compares blockchain with the internet in its early days, referring to the independence the technology symbolizes.
Wozniak Getting Involved
Further, the inventor announced that he is getting involved in a blockchain startup – the Equi platform, that represents fractional shares of tangible assets – real estate and luxury items, creating high-end investment options for average people.
Blockchain Is a Bubble?
Last spring Wozniak claimed blockchain is a “bubble”, despite it being “decentralized and totally trustworthy”. Nevertheless, Steven notably admires the innovation and its derivatives.
