The co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, recently said that he sold all of his Bitcoin (BTC) earnings when the currency hit $20,000 in December 2017, as reported in the latest headlines on our DC Forecasts Bitcoin news site. According to reports from Business Insider Nordic, Wozniak made the comments on December 24th this year while speaking at the Nordic Business Forum in Stockholm, Sweden.
During his speech, Wozniak said that he first bought an undisclosed quantity of Bitcoin when the crypto market was at about $700, mostly because he “wanted to experiment with it.”
Wozniak later explained what he planned to do with it, stating:
“My goal was to travel to a place like Stockholm, and go to restaurants and hotels that only accept bitcoin, and only use bitcoin when I travel.”
When Bitcoin reached its all-time high of about $20,000, Wozniak reportedly sold all of his BTC holdings. As he said:
“When it shot up high, I said I don’t want to be one of those people who watches and 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 and just got rid of it.”
‘The Woz’ (a nickname he got) also said that he has “never been into money in any way” before stating that the has never used Apple’s stock app or never bought or sold stock.
