Coinbase Forced To Remove DApp Browser? Apple Spooked By Decentralisation?

The established tech superpowers are giving the crypto community yet more grief, as Apple warns it may make Coinbase remove the DApp browser feature from its crypto wallet app.

Coinbase gave its users a heads-up in a Reddit post on 28th December, explaining that in order to comply within Apple’s mobile App Store policy, the US-based cryptocurrency exchange may have to remove the feature.

Explaining the situation CEO of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, said:

“This is really unfortunate to see. Apple seems to be eliminating usage of Dapps from the App Store.

“If Apple customers want to be able to use Dapps, we may need to make this request know[n] to Apple in some way. This is an important area of innovation in finance, and many developers and early adopters of this technology have millions of dollars worth of crypto tied up in these financial applications, which they will no longer be able to use on Apple mobile devices if this app store policy continues.”
