He was the rebel who turned boring computers into beautiful and user-friendly home devices. The visionary who decided to target the creatives and the misfits. And in the process, he unlocked the key to mass adoption of the personal computer, changing the world forever.
But would Steve Jobs have been a bitcoiner?
Would he have tried to save Apple from its corporate death or would he have opted-out like Jack Dorsey to focus on Bitcoin full-time?
We can only stay curious about it, as good Steve rests in peace and watches from above.
“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Jobs used to describe Apple products as ‘revolutionary’, ‘amazing’ and ‘magic’, in much the same way that Bitcoin is described by those who believe it to be among the most transforming technological discoveries right after fire and elictricity.
If Steve Jobs was alive today, I believe he would be a bitcoiner and join the alliance of rebel business leaders like Michael Saylor and Jack Dorsey. Imagine the three on a panel together:
“You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in bitcoin — the decentralized ledger, the hard cap, the hard money, and lightning. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” – Steve Jobs 2022
