Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is a believer in Bitcoin and blockchain technology, even though he has admitted that he is not invested.
Wozniak was asked about comments made by Square and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who stated that he hopes that bitcoin becomes the internet’s Native currency – Wozniak affirmed that he shares that hope on CNBC Monday, “I buy into what Jack Dorsey says, not that I necessarily believe it’s going to happen, but because I want it to be that way, that is so pure thinking”.
He went on to show his support for Bitcoin, stating “only bitcoin is pure digital gold…and I totally buy into that.”
He goes on to praise the decentralized nature of Bitcoin, citing that other cryptos give up on that decentralized vision to “try to have a business model”.
In all, it is great to see the support of a public figure, such as Steve Wozniak to come out in support of Bitcoin – especially as a technologist. He hasn’t invested in Bitcoin, but believes in it as a technologist, which speaks volumes as someone who has shaped the world through his work.
