Steve “Woz” Wozniak compared Ethereum with Apple, at the WeAreDevelopers tech conference in Vienna. During his speech, Wozniak described Ethereum (ETH) as a platform similar to Apple’s. In his opinion Ethereum could become just as influential as Apple.
“Ethereum interests me because it can do things and because it’s a platform.”
Just an experiment
Wozniak came across Bitcoin and Ethereum in their early days, but at the moment only holds one Bitcoin (BTC) and two Ethereum (ETH) so he can “experiment with paying for different things.”,
During his opening speech at the conference on Thursday, Wozniak said that Blockchain is “the next major IT revolution that is about to happen.”. According to “Woz”, the Blockchain and cryptocurrency will achieve their full potential within the next decade. He previously expressed that Bitcoin is better than US dollar or gold.
Steve Wozniak is a legend for many and for a good reason. He was the genius behind Apple. In 1976 he designed the computer that launched Apple – the Apple I. After stepping away from Apple he was involved in many other businesses. He is currently a Chief Scientist at the Primary Data, a data virtualisation company.
