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.
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.
