For those passionate about crypto, the fact that Apple’s legendary co-founder, Steve Wozniak, is a big fan of the technology behind cryptocurrencies is no surprise.
Even though his stance on blockchain (at least from an investor’s point of view) up until now can be described as somewhat ambiguous, Wozniak has recently announced that he plans to get involved in a blockchain project.
According to a report by NullTX news site on August 19th, Steve Wozniak declared at the ChainXchange blockchain conference held in Las Vegas that he plans to take part in a blockchain startup. Apple’s co-founder has made his thoughts known on the matter of blockchain praising the technology’s multiple benefits.
“I’m involved with, very soon, my first time being involved in a blockchain company. <…> 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,” he declared.
The tech giant’s co-founder went on further to explain what are the reasons why blockchain technology is so exciting and interesting:
“It’s so independent! It’s kind of like the internet when it was brand new… I was amazed at the technology behind it. <…> I’ve encountered people working in real estate avenues, types of Uber systems, everything we’ve got in our life, especially involving transactions <…> 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.”
Wozniak compares Ethereum with the App Store
Wozniak went as far as to compare the Ethereum platform with Apple’s App Store, hinting at the fact that both platforms allow thousands of companies or individual developers to create and run their own applications.
“Ethereum provides the tools for a blockchain application of your own… I see more people using Ethereum that way,” he affirmed.
The statement comes after Apple’s co-founder expressed his desire of Bitcoin becoming the “only currency of the Internet,” and after he validated Ethereum and its importance for the future of cryptocurrency.
