Apple pulls popular Bitcoin wallet from App Store

Apple has pulled the popular Bitcoin wallet Blockchain from its App Store, leaving iOS users with no remaining Bitcoin wallet apps. Blockchain was removed on Wednesday, and Apple didn’t provide a specific reason to Blockchain CEO Nicolas Cary, only explaining the app was removed “due to an unresolved issue.” “It’s well known that Apple is developing its own payment system,” Cary told The New York Times. “They are building a walled garden to interfere with innovation.” According to Wired, Blockchain is the world’s most popular Bitcoin wallet. The app is used by about 120,000 people, with more than 1 million Blockchain users in total.
