Bitcoin Users Destroy iPhones Protest Removing Blockchain App

Broken iPhone for Bitcoin

This is an interesting phenomenon (actually, it’s hilarious). With news that Apple removed the Blockchain.info app from their App Store on Wednesday, bitcoin users who also happen to use the company’s products are taking their anger out on their iOS devices.

A user on Reddit called “round-peg” said that for every upvotes his post received, any person smashing their iPhone on video would be gifted a Nexus 5 Android mobile phone.

The conditions? Only 5 Nexus devices would be given away, and the poster wrote that “Your reason should include the fact that Apple is anti-Bitcoin, not just because you want a free trade for a new phone.”

And so came the destruction:

Yes, folks. This really happened.

As luck would have it, the Redditor who proposed the challenge appears to have since removed his account. Nexus 5 devices? Unclear. Nothing more to say.
