AppStore Blocked Coinbase Wallet App Update
Bitcoin exchange Coinbase has disabled the ability to send NFTs in its Coinbase Wallet iOS app following Apple’s demand for a 30% gas fee.
You might have noticed you can’t send NFTs on Coinbase Wallet iOS anymore. This is because Apple blocked our last app release until we disabled the feature. ????
— Coinbase Wallet (@CoinbaseWallet) December 1, 2022
The developers of Coinbase Wallet have stated that a new version of their application will not be released until they agree to pay 30% transaction fees through the Apple payment system.
“Apple claims that the gas required to send NFTs must be paid through their In-App Purchase system so they can receive 30% [комиссии] from the commission,” wrote Coinbase.
Coinbase representatives tried to convey to Apple that this is technically impossible, since such operations take place on the basis of the blockchain, the technology of which is not supported by the App Store payment system.
“The biggest impact of this change is on iPhone users who own NFTs. […] Apple just made it much more difficult to transfer them to other wallets and give them to friends or family,” the statement said.
Coinbase admitted that this was a mistake on Apple’s part and called for negotiations.
MetaMask co-founder and former Apple employee Dan Finley has criticized the tech giant for “abusing its monopoly.” Moreover, he stated that his company is ready to abandon the Apple ecosystem if the AppStore does not change its mind.
