Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak Becomes a Fan of Blockchain

Steve Wozniak is popularly known not to be a big fan of the blockchain. The new report suggests that he is now a believer.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has revealed his involvements with new blockchain start-up, Equi Capital. This revelation comes two months after he compared the blockchain to the dot-com bubble.

Null TX reported that the revelation was made at the ChainXchange blockchain convention in Las Vegas. This will be the first time that Wozniak will be involved in any blockchain-based company. In the interview, he agreed that bitcoin is purely designed based on mathematics and as a scientist. However he tends to be more comfortable with mathematically inclined inventions.

Wozniak further explained that his curiosity for bitcoin also opened his eyes to its underlying blockchain technology.  Regarding his previous stance, he confessed that the comment was made out of ignorance. He went on to state that he has been able to research the technology and the feedback he got was amazing.

After showering the technology with encomiums, he announced that he will soon be getting involved in a blockchain-based company for the first time. Wozniak explained that the company is not interested in creating a new currency, rather it is more interested in property-related investments. He concluded the interview by stating that the company will be starting up in a country that is blockchain-friendly.

Who is Equi capital?

Equi Capital is a start-up blockchain-based company that plans to be the next investment frontier. It launched an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) earlier this year which failed to raise 10% of its fundraising goal. This led to the cancellation of the ICO and the follow-up bounty formed to salvage the platform met the same disappointing fate.

However, the recent involvement of Steve Wozniak could signal a turnaround for the troubled project. The platform is set to be launched this winter.
