Wozniak about the future of crypto
In addition to a positive assessment of the potential of cryptocurrency, Wozniak also expressed his opinion on the price of crypto and the factors that influence its formation. According to the investor, the price of Bitcoin primarily depends on the psychological factors of society.
Confirming his point, Wozniak cited the example of the last Bitcoin growth incident last year. Then the cryptocurrency rose to $ 20,000, although it predicted 40,000. The fact that the first cryptocurrency did not rise to the predicted level is the outcome of investors' psychological distrust of new technologies.
"Then there were assumptions and predictions that Bitcoin will grow to 40,000 dollars, and he rose only to 20,000 (...) Can we now believe that the cryptocurrency will burst or disappear?"
Steve Wozniak also commented on today's drop-in prices and the collapse of the cryptocurrency market. He does not associate such phenomena with "crypto imperfections."
"In fact, this is not a fall, but an insignificant reduction in value, which is an element of large-scale investor creation (...) In a cryptocurrency investment environment, psychological factors such as trust play a significant role."
Recall that Wozniak has repeatedly said that he has crypto in his wallet. But in his interview, he said that he did not consider cryptocurrencies as a way of investing or additional income. According to the co-founder of Apple, he uses Bitcoins as a payment method, "as intended."
