The co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, has been active in the blockchain events and news for some time now. However, in the latest updates here on our DC Forecasts crypto news site, he is announced as a co-founder of the recently launched blockchain venture capital fund named EQUI Global, according to the reports made by the global business outlet named Verdict.
This comes after an announcement in which the popular ‘Woz’ outlined his plans to become “involved” in a blockchain project. Today, he was revealed as the co-founder of EQUI Global, which is a VC fund that will focus on blockchain technology built on a blockchain-powered backend.
The new venture capital fund will also aim to change the concept of the traditional industry by enabling non-institutional investments as well as allowing investors to trade on external crypto exchanges all thanks to the EquiTokens, which rely on an infrastructure that is based on the Ethereum blockchain.
As Verdict reported, EQUI Global will target “sophisticated” investors that are focused on venture capital funds through investing in Equitokens, in a model that aims at facilitating the trading experience by allowing easy liquidation of tokens through crypto exchanges.
Wozniak stated that the company’s mission is to “seek, support as well as fund the blockchain and tech stars of tomorrow” and that the company has “partnered with over 20 businesses” that have not been launched yet.
With this, the ‘Woz’ appears to have changed his skeptical stance on crypto, following his recent statement that blockchain is a “bubble” similar to the one of the dotcom era.
