Wozniak Wishes Bitcoin Would Become a Single Global Currency

Some weeks ago Silicon Valley’s businessperson Jack Dorsey expressed a belief that it is not the dollar that would run the world in a few years. Dorsey, who is also Twitter’s CEO, said that bitcoin would turn into a single global currency, and it will take it only a decade to get to that point.

It is noteworthy that Dorsey is not the only man on an island as Apple’s co-constitutor Steve Wozniak supports his prediction.

‘The Woz’ On Bitcoin’s Side

This week, Steve Wozniak unveiled that he actually supports Dorsey’s idea and he even would like it to be true one day. The known tech entrepreneur with the net worth around $8 billion, told about this to CNBC on June 4.

"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," said Wozniak.

Interestingly, Wozniak himself once purchased bitcoin at a price of $700 in the past. And that is $6,750 less than what bitcoin is traded at today, on June 5, as per data represented on Coinmarketcap.com.

However, later ‘The Woz’ sold out almost all his BTC unit, explaining it by saying that the purchase was just a tech experiment. Unluckily, some of his bitcoins got stolen. Right now he owns one BTC unit as well as two ETH coins.

"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… and surviving, that to me says something that is natural and nature is more important than all our human conventions," also said Wozniak.

Also, the businessperson and engineer said that he considers bitcoin as the only “pure” digital gold, even though there are hundreds of other coins available on the market. Wozniak defends his thought by saying that bitcoin is the only totally decentralized crypto-coin, and it’s not what altcoins can boast of.
