Steve-Wozniak

Ethereum-powered and innovatively designed venture investment platform, EQUI has recently announced Steve Wozniak as a co-founder. A renowned tech entrepreneur, Steve Wozniak is widely recognized for his work at Apple, that he had started together with Steve Jobs.

With a top administrative executive like Wozniak in the lead, EQUI global has an eye on disrupting the venture capital industry by facilitating trading by the non-institutional investor’s portfolios on external cryptocurrency exchanges. It will give them the flexibility to push and explore the secondary market through the purchase of  Ethereum based “EquiToken”.

EQUI was designed to bring professional and individual investors together with the idea of initiating an  innovative way of funding in the market.

Live Bitcoin News had reported about Wozniak’s plans to get involved with the controversial start-up, earlier, in August.

Blockchain has brought a revolution in the tech industry and if we believe on the tech geeks and researchers, it is going to bring a radical change in the venture capital industry. A great admirer of technology, talking about Blockchain, Wozniak says, “Bitcoin is ‘Amazing’ but Blockchain Is a ‘Bubble’.”

Founded by Scottish investors Doug Barrowman and Baroness Michelle Mone OBE, EQUI welcomed “Woz” into the VC firm as a subsequent founding member for his tact identification of tech companies worth investing in.

“I get ideas pitched to me every single day, in fact, dozens and I always say no,” said Wozniak for Verdict. “Since I co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, this is about the second time in twenty years that I actually said yes. I want to be a part of this. It has to be something I really believe in and I really believe in EQUI.”

About the firm’s further plans, EQUI officials stated, “We are primarily focused on investment in technology companies while we would like to also invest 20% in real estate and art.”

Steve Wozniak – co-founder of EQUI – commented that, “Mentoring was key in the early days of Apple. Joining its hand with the world’s most promising startups, the firm has remarkably gained the world’s attention, especially for Blockchain enthusiasts.”

Bet on the Future

Global Blockchain Technology Industry Market is estimated to showcase a higher CAGR in the upcoming years.

Over the past few years, the industry has seen tremendous growth. Woz has always remained the admirer of technology and innovation and he hopes that Bitcoin will soon become the global digital currency for exchange.

“We’ve already got over 20 businesses that we are looking at and we haven’t even officially launched yet. It’s going to be very exciting,” Wozniak explained.

Taking on future, Woz called himself a great believer of the Blockchain technology and he truly believes in the  humongous potential hidden in it
