Apple revised its rules for the creators of cryptocurrency applications in the direction of liberalization.
Apple is known for its strict rules when it comes to apps in the App Store. Especially crypto applications.
A group called The Developers Union made a proposal to revise these rules and it seems that Apple intends this request to satisfy.
Any coherent reasons for such changes, however, announcing the changes, Apple said the app “change the world, enrich people’s lives and enable developers to innovate like never before. In the result, the App Store has become the ecosystem for millions of developers and more than a billion users.”
Regardless of whether you are a beginner developer or a large team of experienced programmers, we are happy that you are creating apps for the App Store and want to help you understand our recommendations so you can be sure that your app will pass quickly through the moderation process.
The new guidelines affect everything from ICO to mining.
For example, with regard to the ICO, then Apple require that all related applications have been released by the respective financial institutions, banks, licensed brokers, futures and other derivatives and other agencies, that that is the appropriate license.
As for hashing, Apple specifically says that apps can’t be used for mining “if these operations are performed by resources of the device”, i.e. applications related to cloud mining can function normally.
As for the other recommendations, Apple States the following:
The application can be used for transactions or the transfer of cryptocurrency through the exchange, if the application issued by this exchanger. Cryptocurrency app can offer its users a reward of cryptocurrency for the performance of certain tasks, such as downloading other apps promote other users to download, publish to social networks, etc.
Apple wants all developers of applications related to mining has ensured that:
– these applications do not drain your battery relatively quickly;
– excessive heat or excessive device load his memory;
– include any advertisements by third parties.
Recall that about 5 years ago Apple basically fearing the applications that may use the user devices for mining, was asked to remove the developers of their apps are all related to cryptocurrency.
It is assumed that a group called “The Developers Union” affected the change in this policy, as they are at the time, sent a letter to Apple.
