Tim Cook admits: I invest in cryptocurrencies. What about ecology, Mr. Cook?

Tim Cook manages a company that has recently become an ecological savior of the world, and at the same time invests in cryptocurrencies. Something’s wrong here, don’t you think?

The CEO of the Cupertino giant has just admitted that although he would not yet use the company’s billions to invest in cryptocurrencies, he is a great supporter of them and invests his own money in them. Let me ask you again: what about ecology, Mr. Cook?

This news made me laugh, but out of respect for my readers, I will try to be serious. In yesterday’s interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin from The New York Times, Tim Cook said that cryptocurrencies are a topic that the company he manages has been watching for years, but that he does not intend to invest corporate money in digital money in the near future. Cook even managed to say that his company does not currently have any plans to accept cryptocurrencies as a form of payment for its products.

I do not know about you, but I am not at all surprised by the rhetoric presented by the head of Apple. Cryptocurrencies, at least for the moment, aren’t exactly something that is associated with ecology. And Apple has for some time been giving the impression that it wants to become a corporation in the future, which will be awarded the Green Leaf Smile by some ecological organization.

It is different when it comes to the Apple president’s wallet and own money. In this regard, in an interview with the New York Times, he was very effusive, and although he initially avoided the subject like plague, he eventually admitted to Sorkin:

Mr. Cook, you can certainly afford to fire up your own cryptocurrency mine. Just don’t forget to let us know later on your electricity bill.
