“Someone bought it online from a credit card, but then the payment was canceled, it was that simple, and since a stolen credit card number was used, there’s no way to get it back,” said Wozniak.
Presumably, the payment was canceled by the legitimate cardholder. The Bitcoin transaction, however, could not be reversed once it was made.
Bitcoin was an experiment
Wozniak paid around $ 700 per Bitcoin at the time of purchase. Currently, the price is already over $ 10,700. Nevertheless, “The Woz” took the cheating calmly. This may also be due to the fact that his assets from the portal “TheRichest” is estimated at about $ 100 million.
In addition, he always considered his Bitcoin as an experiment, but not as an investment. In January 2018, however, the hype about the cryptocurrency was too much for him and he sold his Bitcoins. As he explained then, he had originally bought his coins because of their usefulness, but then discovered that he was at some point too busy with the price movement.
Speaking to the audience at the tech conference “Nordic Business Forum,” he said: “When the price went up, I told myself that I did not want to be among those who only care about that one number I do not need anything in my life. ”
