The co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, went viral this week after saying that he is working with the investment-focused crypto startup Equi Capital.
The Bitcoin proponent who is well-known in the crypto sector for his statements said that this is the first time that he is working with a blockchain company in his career. He also expressed his enthusiasm for the project and added that he was “amazed at the technology behind cryptocurrency.”
Equi, on the other hand, is an investment-focused crypto startup. As we can see from its Twitter page, it is designed to help both retail and professional investors purchase equity in companies and thereby replace the traditional investing firms.
Even though Wozniak did not comment on his role in the startup, he described the approach in this new partnership, telling Null Transaction the following:
“Our approach is not like a new currency, or something phony where an event will make it go up in value. It’s a share of stock, in a company. This company is doing investment by investors with huge track records in good investments in things like apartment buildings in Dubai. We have one person in our group who has listed out a whole apartment building for bitcoin.”
Meanwhile, Eqip is looking forward to registering a business in Malta – as the safe haven for blockchain and crypto-related companies.
When asked about blockchain’s real potential, Wozniak seems too enthusiastic about blockchain technology, stating:
“I’ve encountered people working in real estate avenues, types of Uber systems, everything we’ve got in our life, especially involving transactions – retail sales, car sales, manufacturing of goods … working on bitcoin applications … and they all have value.”
Even though people think that Wozniak being part of a crypto startup is news that is quite surprising, the co-founder of Apple has been positive about cryptocurrencies and looks forward to seeing the market evolve over the coming years.
