The founder of Apple is robbed of his bitcoins

Lately, if there is something that is sounding particularly strong in the global economy, it is the blockchain, and in particular, the bitcoin, which you can manage with these apps , responsible for the fact that a few years ago this revolution began, which seems to be the beginning of the end for the physical money . Or, at least, it would be if it were not because, in general, criptodivisas are very unstable, as we have seen with the bitcoin itself, which continues with the particular roller coaster in which users have converted it.

In this case, we bring you a little story related to the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak, who as many of us expected, is also involved in this type of technology. In particular, it seems that some time ago he bought some bitcoins after having checked the spectacular rise of this currency a short time, in order to check if in the future he could make transactions with them instead of with his card or physical money ( as it already happens in some online establishments).

However, Wozniak is no stranger to the security threats that threaten the network, and that have been really active lately thanks to the "privacy" that cryptocurrency provides. In his case, for the attacker it was much simpler than a ransomware or something similar, I simply need a credit card that had been stolen previously, and through which he made a transaction that the thief canceled to take seven bitcoins.

Of course, for someone like Wozniak is not much to steal seven bitcoins, despite the value they can have, but it is good to remember that nobody is safe from threats, even through the blockchain. And if by some chance you end up seeing yourself affected by something like that, there are few things you can do to solve it, precisely because of the security that these transactions grant to their users. Although theoretically they are not authorized.
