The fight for dApps on the App Store continues.
Coinbase and Apple are still not getting along months after Coinbase warned customers it might remove an application from the Apple Store.
Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong tweeted on August 22 that Apple continues to block some functionalities for cryptocurrencies, including being able to earn money and unrestricted decentralized applications (dApp) browsers. He said:
“Apple has been very restrictive and hostile to cryptocurrency over the years. They’re still blocking some functionality right now, including the ability to earn money with cryptocurrency by completing tasks, and unrestricted dapp browsers.”
In December, Coinbase warned its customers it might have to remove its dApp browser from its application to meet Apple’s App Store policies. At the time, both Apple and Google’s Android app store Google Play wanted to remove dApps in its network.
Apple, particularly its App Store, has been under fire lately for unfair terms it gives to app developers and publishers. The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and games developer Epic Games have all called out Apple looking for fairer terms for developers.
