Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, appearing at the WeAreDevelopers World Congress in Vienna on Wednesday, told the assembled audience that he saw both blockchain and cryptocurrencies reaching their future full potential in just a decade, according to Cointelegraph.

Wozniak’s speech at the IT conference, Europe’s largest of its kind attracting roughly 8,000 visitors from 70 countries, opened the event, where he was attending to present his views on how blockchain was shaping the future of the technology sector. On this occasion, he focused his attention on the advancement of blockchain in his address with a less flamboyant approach, unlike his comments at the October Money 20/20 conference in Las Vegas last year, when he referred to Bitcoin as “better” and more “stable” than gold.

Referred to by the Apple co-founder as “the next major IT revolution that is about to happen”, Wozniak suggested that within the decade, decentralized technology would need to be adopted more widely and not simply limited to cryptocurrency, but applied to a diversity of sectors. However, he did point out that DLT had an advantage over fiat currencies due to the limitation on how many Bitcoins could exist, given that the US dollar could simply be printed, describing Bitcoin as more “genuine and real”.

Another major IT player, Jack Dorsey, was speaking at another gathering, the Consensus conference in New York, on the same day. The founder of Twitter and CEO of Square expressed a view there that he was positive that, in the future, the “internet is going to have a native currency”, hoping that it would be Bitcoin. He said that a common digital currency used by everyone would be the future, although until then people would continue to use various digital and traditional currencies to pay for goods and services, Fortune reports.

Like Wozniak, Dorsey has long been a supporter of Bitcoin and other digital currencies. His company Square allows for Bitcoin transactions, and buys and sells the digital currency.
