When asked how long he has been interested in crypto, Cook went on to say that he has been “interested in it for a while” and that he has been “researching it”, suggesting that he takes an active interest in cryptocurrency markets and investments.
Cook then revealed Apple did not intend to incorporate crypto into its operations and follow the lead of other major tech giants like Tesla, Facebook and Twitter, saying that Apple had no plans to make cryptocurrencies an accepted method of payment anytime soon.
“It’s not something we have immediate plans to do,” he said.
