Apple Bans all Bitcoin Apps from the App Store

Things are not looking good for iPhone users who use the Bitcoin crypto-currency. Today Apple removed the final Bitcoin wallet app from the App Store. The App was named Blockchain and while it was not the largest it was removed without warning.


Obviously this did not make iOS users who were using Blockchain as their Bitcoin wallet very happy. One Reddir user round-peg was even offering to give a new Nexus 5 to the first 5 people that smashed their iPhones in rage over the Blockchain app being removed from the App Store. Blockchain has said that Apple banned their app because they felt that Bitcoin threatened their own payment system.
