Cryptocurrency for iOS App Store
Cryptocurrency Approved by Apple
Cryptocurrency is widely accepted by merchants all over the world and one of them is Apple. However, not all cryptocurrencies are accepted by Apple for iOS App Store. There are only some that are accepted. Apple norm in accepting cryptocurrency is unknown. Lately, they have been removing and accepting new cryptocurrency without giving reasons why they remove the other and accept another.
Three Cryptocurrencies has been approved by Apple
Last September 12, this year, the tech giant apple revealed three additional altcoins that are allowed for the App Store. The California-based company is now open for Digicash, Lisk and Steem. Before the addition of the said cryptocurrencies, it was previously reported that the giant company had left the cryptocurrency world after they have removed two cryptocurrencies the other week.
Anthony Di Iorio, Jaxx CEO had a conversation with Apple and learned that these three altcoins are now included on iOS devices. They are the ninth addition.
9 Cryptocurrency Approved by Apple
There are six more cryptocurrencies that are accepted by the Apple Company before the addition of three which makes them nine. This was confirmed by Di Iorio which Apple revealed to him in their previous discussion. The nine cryptocurrencies are as follows:
Below is the statement of Jaxx CEO given to the press:
“ON MONDAY WE LEARNED THAT APPLE PERMITS APPS USING NINE SPECIFIC DIGITAL CURRENCIES, CRITICAL INFORMATION TO THE CRYPTO COMMUNITY. AT JAXX, WE’VE BEEN COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING A GLOBAL BLOCKCHAIN ECOSYSTEM. EVERY DAY OUR DEVELOPERS WORK TO BUILD A CONSISTENT INFRASTRUCTURE ACROSS BLOCKCHAINS AND ACROSS PLATFORMS. TO THAT END, THE INSIGHT WE HAVE GLEANED FROM APPLE THUS FAR HAS BEEN INVALUABLE, AND WE HOPE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT APPLE’S POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR BLOCKCHAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE,”
Unapproved Cryptocurrencies still supports by Android Wallets and Jaxx Desktop
Android mobile owners need not fret about the unapproved digital currency because Jaxx team still supported them. They can still use Ethereum Classic and Dash to their devices as well as to Firefox and Google Chrome extensions.
Multi-cryptocurrency wallet, Jaxx was launched June this year and it became popular since then. In fact, they have been the choice wallet of more than 40,000 users.
How Apple makes a list of approved cryptocurrency is amusing. This makes members of the community wonder which blockchain addition will be next+.
Dash community are not happy with the decision of the company and questioning its integrity after they have allowed DAO token which is now-defunct into their App Store. The community even creates a parody in YouTube and making fun of the decision of the company.
What will Apple remove or approve next is what people in the community are looking forward to. What is clear in the moment is that Bitcoin will remain since the company shows their favoritism on this cryptocurrency. Just recently, the firm let the users add the Circle application into the newest iMessage platform of iOS 10 which makes Bitcoiners really happy.
For the meantime, Jaxx is looking for ways to find out how Apple makes decisions with regards to allowing cryptocurrency. Do you think Digicash, Lisk and Steem are great addition to the App Store?
