Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak expressed that he is not convinced that all nations in the world will be swayed to declare Bitcoin as a de facto global currency in the future but emphasized that it is one of his dreams.

Speaking at the sidelines of Money20/20 Europe, the internationally renowned technology figure explained that he is very much enthusiastic with the “purity” of the idea that people around the world could share a single currency even if separated by national borders.

“I buy into what Jack Dorsey says, not that I necessarily believe it’s going to happen, but because I want it to be that way, that is so pure thinking,” Wozniak expressed.

It can be recalled that Dorsey, who serves as CEO of both social media giant Twitter and digital payment processor Square, recently shared the same views that Bitcoin will be the world’s only currency in the near future.

Likewise, Wozniak branded Bitcoin as “pure digital gold” as it is totally decentralized and not being run by a sole entity and does not have a business model.

“Bitcoin is mathematically defined, there is a certain quantity of bitcoin, there’s a way it’s distributed and it’s pure and there’s no human running, there’s no company running and it’s just growing and growing and surviving. That to me says something that is natural and nature is more important than all our human conventions,” he further stated.

Earlier, he also shared positive comments for Ethereum, citing that the project could become the next Apple in terms of its status in the tech sector.

The price of both Bitcoin and Ethereum has not been moving very much since the start of the month. As of this writing Bitcoin’s value is at $7,465.6300 while Ethereum is priced at $590.4770.
