Steve Wozniak: I want bitcoin to become single world currency


The co-founder of Apple said that he shared the view of the head of Twitter Jack Dorsey and took interest in Ethereum. 

“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,” Wozniak told CNBC on June 4.

IN the programmer’s opinion the main advantages of the first crypto currency are limited number of coins and full decentralization

In the near future, bitcoin will become a single currency, says Wozniak. In an interview with CNBC, he said that he bought into what the head of Twitter Jack Dorsey said, who is confident that in ten years there will not be a single altcoin in the world.

He was responding to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey remark earlier this year.

“I’m ready to talk about what Jack Dorsey is saying. Not because I think it will necessarily happen, but because I want it to be so, “Wozniak noted.

He stressed that he was “not an investor,” having originally purchased Bitcoin at $700 to experiment with its use as a means of payment. “I have one Bitcoin and two ether,” he told CNBC. Nonetheless, for Wozniak, Bitcoin represents a separate class of crypto asset to all others.

Earlier, Wozniak favoured the ether. At a conference in Vienna in May this year, the expert said that Ethereum could become “a new Apple”.

Now “The Woz” – as he is often called – believes that not only “Bitcoin is pure digital gold”, but has certain advantages over the precious metal.

“Bitcoin is mathematically defined, there is a certain quantity of bitcoin, there’s a way it’s distributed… and it’s pure and there’s no human running, there’s no company running and it’s just… growing and growing,” Wozniak told CNBC.

He noted that no person or company manages the first crypto currency, it “simply continues to work, grow and survive”. 

However, Wozniak believes that it is very important to strengthen the regulation of the industry which will positively affect its further development.
