Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has compared Ethereum (ETH) to a young Apple company back in the 80s. At the WeAreDevelopers tech conference in Vienna, Steve Wozniak compared Ethereum’s platform with Apple and said it could become just as influential as Apple in the world. He also believes that the blockchain is the next major IT revolution that is about to happen.
As reported by Trustnodes, Wozniak added:
“Ethereum interests me because it can do things and because it’s a platform. When we started Apple, our Apple 2 computer was a platform. Here’s all the documentation, open source, you can see how you develop parts, look at the examples we have done. How to develop software, how to modify the softwares in here. It was a platform for others, so thousands of companies started up. Sometimes high school kids started their own company, and then they’d put up little ads in little electronic journals, ads for my product, for the Apple 2. Everybody in the world was advertising for us and we didn’t have to. So platforms is how the world can grow by opening up to millions of other smart people”
According to Forbes, Wozniak was early investors in Bitcoin and Ethereum in its early days, although he stopped investing in crypto in early 2018. Wozniak said he still owns one Bitcoin (BTC) and two Ethereum (ETH) to “experiment with paying for different things.”
Wozniak didn’t only discuss Bitcoin, Ethereum and blockchain. He also addressed topics like Tesla, and the Cambridge Analytica data leak scandal. He said
“We lost our security a long time ago. We’ve lost our privacy and it’s been abused. If I think I have a level of privacy that I don’t, that’s deceit. And that bothers me. I hit a limit. I can’t take that. It’s one step in a long series of steps that are all in the same direction.”
The Apple co-founder is still part of the technology world and has founded coding academy Woz University that has 31 coding centers across the US.
