Apple removes the last Bitcoin wallet from its App Store

Apple’s dislike for Bitcoin has now become more popular than ever. The company has nuked Bitcoin wallet apps like BitPak and Coinbaise recently, and it’s still hard to understand why. Surely the cyber-currency has been a target for many debates lately, specially when you try to figure out who started it, and yet, we’ve seen it gain popularity everywhere, except on Apple’s App Store.

Today Cupertino decided to remove Blockchain, the last and most popular Bitcoin wallet that was left. If you were lucky enough to already have the app on your device, you can still keep using it though. The only difference is that new users won’t be able to access it, and those of you that can, won’t be able to get any software updates for it.

So far Apple hasn’t come clear on why it has decided to do this, but Blockchain’s CEO assumes that it has to do with Apple’s plans to launch its own mobile payments system soon. Hopefully Apple will shed some light in the future.
