Steve Wozniak admitted to an audience at the Nordic Business Forum in Sweden that most of his Bitcoin holdings have been sold, though he retains a keen interest in crytocurrency as a whole.
Apple’s co-founder blamed his unease with Bitcoin on the volatility of value, and so sold all but enough to ‘experiment with’.
He said: “When it shot up high, I said, ‘I don’t want to become one of those people that watch it, watches it, and cares about the number. I don’t want that kind of care in my life. Part of my happiness is not to have worries, so I sold it all – just got rid of it – except just enough to still experiment with.”
As CryptoNewsHunter points out, as Wozniak was a relatively early adopter of Bitcoin he has almost certainly made a sizeable profit from his initial investment. He continued on to say that he’s still a vocal supporter for cryptocurrencies and blockchain tech.
“Gold gets mined and mined and mined,” he said. “Maybe there’s a finite amount of gold in the world, but Bitcoin is even more mathematical and regulated and nobody can change mathematics.”
