As NullTX news site reports, Steve Wozniak has announced his plans to become involved in a blockchain project. This will be the first time ever for the Apple’s co-founder to participate in such.
Wozniak praised the blockchain technology during the ChainXchange conference in Las Vegas, US on August 13-15th.
“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 also spoke about his plans to participate in a blockchain startup:
“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.”
This is a rather big change, as Wozniak called blockchain technology a “bubble”, earlier this year.
