Ethereum is an open-source, Blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system featuring smart contract functionality.
According to a report in CoinTelegraph, Wozniak said that “he has a very positive outlook on blockchain and virtual currencies due to the fact that they can change many different areas and industries”.
The blockchain and cryptocurrencies will achieve their full potential in a decade, according to Wozniak, who hailed the technology as “the next major IT revolution that is about to happen”.
Wozniak said he believes in Bitcoin because it is not related to a central authority–governments–and because it is based in mathematics, so it cannot be altered, and because it is based in mathematics, so it cannot be altered, “it is pure”.
