Wozniak is not the only notable person to have predicted that the bitcoin pass will hit the $100,000 mark.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has reechoed the belief that the Bitcoin price will hit the $100,000 mark. He stated this at a recent interview while discussing cryptocurrency on the Wild Ride with Steve-O podcast.
Wozniak noted that he ventured into Bitcoin as an explorer, eager to demonstrate the different use cases of Bitcoin. He also expressed his delight at every piece of the journey. That said, the astute programmer noted that he didn’t have any mathematical proof for his prediction.
As an alternative, Wozniak suggested market interest as the reason why the bitcoin price will continue to rise. He said:
“I simply feel it as a result of all of the interest. The interest in cryptocurrencies.”
A Relentless Bitcoin Fan
Wozniak has made other positive comments about Bitcoin in the past. Just last week, Wozniak noted his skepticism about NFTs and many new cryptocurrencies. The Apple co-founder noted that many of the new projects were just rip-offs and scams.
He then went on to state that Bitcoin is, “[The] only one that’s pure-gold mathematics.” Also in 2021, Wozniak called Bitcoin a mathematical purity in October and that it was better than gold in July.
Asides from holding Bitcoin, In 2019, Wozniak cofounded Efforce to improve energy efficiency through blockchain in Malta. The firm’s utility token is named WOZX. Also, Wozniak is a judge on the reality show called Unicorn Hunters which recently introduced its coin, Unicoin.
