Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has revealed that he sold his bitcoin holdings after growing tired of monitoring the cryptocurrency’s rapidly-changing value.

Wozniak said last year that he bought into the cryptocurrency when a single coin was being sold for around $700. However, the legendary programmer was not interested in turning a profit and was instead focused on the blockchain technology behind bitcoin, which he used to make secure payments while travelling abroad.

As the price of a coin neared $20,000 late last year, Wozniak decided he’d had enough of the crypto gold rush. “When it shot up high, I said I don’t want to be one of those people who watches and watches it and cares about the number. I don’t want that kind of care in my life,” Wozniak told the audience at the Nordic Business Forum in Stockholm, Business Insider reports.

“Part of my happiness is not to have worries, so I sold it all and just got rid of it.”

The multi-millionaire has never revealed exactly how much of the cryptocurrency he bought but even a single coin would have netted thousands of dollars in profit.
