Apple has reversed its original decision to deny apps that incorporate the digital currency Dash, access to the App Store. This is big news for fans of the 6th most valued cryptocurrency as of writing, valued at approximately 1.4 billion USD.
This also means multi-currency apps have the green light to integrate the Dash currency into their code.
CEO of Dash Core Ryan Taylor admits,
“Apple is in a difficult position. Ultimately, they are attempting to look out for user safety by preventing less reputable projects from accessing the Apple Store ecosystem. In the past, a number of unaudited and unofficial Dash wallets have slipped through the review process, leaving users questioning the safety of those options. Now that Dash is an Apple-approved digital currency, we are able to offer our users an officially endorsed wallet option. Our users can confidently use Dash wallets that are maintained, officially supported, and known to be safe. Apple has shown a willingness to allow worthy digital currencies into their platform, but that requires an incredible amount of due diligence on their part. We’re pleased that they determined Dash was worth the substantial effort to evaluate, and we’re obviously pleased with the outcome.”
