Then, when Bitcoin hit 20,000 USD in December 2018, S. Wozniak reportedly sold all of his BTC savings. He said: “When it shot up high, I said I don't want to be one of those people who watches and watches it and cares about the number. I don't want that kind of care in my life [...] Part of my happiness is not to have worries, so I sold it all and just got rid of it.”

Nevertheless, S. Wozniak has confirmed that he believes in crypto, pointed out that that Bitcoin is “just amazing.” Moreover, in October 2018, he also revealed that he was a co-founder at EQUI Global, a blockchain-oriented venture capital fund.
