Co-founder became the victim of a scammer when trying to sold his Bitcoins

Speaking at the World Economic Summit Economic Times, co-founder of Apple said that he was a victim of an attacker who used the number of a stolen credit card to buy a crypto currency. The payment that Wozniak received for the sale of seven bitcoins was canceled, apparently at the request of the legal owner of the card, and the technical guru was left without money and with an empty bitcoin-purse.

Bitcoins to me was a currency that was not manipulated by the governments. It is mathematical, it is pure, it can’t be altered. The blockchain identifies who has bitcoins… that doesn’t mean there can’t be fraud though. I had seven bitcoins stolen from me through fraud. Somebody bought them from me online through a credit card and they cancelled the credit card payment. It was that easy! And it was from a stolen credit card number so you can never get it back.

Co-founder, Apple

In January, the co-founder of Apple said that he got rid of most of his crypto-currency assets, because he is interested primarily in technology, and the movements of his courses only distract him.

At the same time, Wozniak never said how many bitcoins he owned. It is only known that he bought the crypto currency at the time when it traded at about $ 700 per 1 BTC.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
