Nicolas Cary, CEO of Blockchain (not to be confused with the bitcoin block chain), has taken to the Twitter-waves to tease the company’s brand-spanking-new Blockchain Wallet application for Apple iOS devices.
“Reddit asks. Reddit gets,” Cary’s tweet read with a sneak peak screenshot:
Cary’s tweet today comes just a couple of weeks following Apple’s reveal of iOS 8 — the latest iteration of the company’s mobile operating system. Shortly after the company seeded the software beta to developers, they released an amended list of App Store rules.
In those rules, community members almost instantly noticed the addition of a new regulation:
11.17 Apps may facilitate transmission of approved virtual currencies provided that they do so in compliance with all state and federal laws for the territories in which the app functions
The addition came following the company’s strict policy of not allowing bitcoin-transmitting applications, which most certainly caused an uproar. Users took to smashing — even going so far as to shoot — their devices in protest.
Shortly after the news came out, NEWSBTC spoke to Blockchain’s Nic Cary to inquire as to whether or not his company would be resubmitting his app to the App Store — which had previously been pulled on the count of policy violations.
“We will definitely be resubmitting the Blockchain iOS app and look forward to the day where we can invest and improve the experience,” Cary told us, including that “A lot of users and development have migrated to Android so Apple has a big job ahead to swiftly cultivate and attract apps.”
It’s unclear just when the Blockchain Wallet app will make its return to the App Store, but it’s certainly looking like it’ll be happening soon.
