Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, has recently gone on CNBC and stated his sentiments on Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Back in March of this year the founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, expressed how he was pro Bitcoin and his belief that it will become the internet’s and possibly the number one global currency. Wozniak added on to Dorsey’s statement saying while he’s not sure it will happen, he wants it to.
“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…Bitcoin is mathematically defined, there is a certain quantity of bitcoin, there’s a way it’s distribute…and it’s pure and there’s no human running, there’s no company running and it’s just… growing and growing… and surviving, that to me says something that is natural and nature is more important than all our human conventions.”

Steve Wozniak wants bitcoin to become the world’s single currency from CNBC.
It is almost surprising that Wozniak would be so outspoken about the success of Bitcoin. Woz admitted to being scammed out of Bitcoin earlier in the year when he attempted to sell to an online buyer who ended up canceling their credit card payment after the transaction occurred. Being a programmer since he founded Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976 must make it so Woz still understands and believes in Bitcoin’s technology. All though thre are over 1000 different cryptocurrencies, it seems Wozniak is mainly pro Bitcoin due it the currency’s total decentralization.
“Only bitcoin is pure digital gold… and I totally buy into that. All the others tend to give up some of the aspects of bitcoin. For example, being totally decentralized and having no central control. That’s the first one they have to give up to try to have a business model.”
