- The brand also threatens to stop supporting the Damus app.
- They require payment service licenses from developers
Apple has rejected the latest Zeus Crypto Wallet with Lightning support. About it informed project founder Evan Kaludis.
According to him, the company asked the Zeus team to provide licenses for working with virtual currencies, otherwise the Apple App Store will not support the update.
A couple of days ago, Apple also threatened to cut support for another app called Damus. It is a decentralized social network running on the Nostr protocol. The reason for the conflict was that Damus introduces the “zap” option, which allows users to transfer small bitcoin donations via Lightning technology. These are payments to content creators, similar to the “tip” feature on Twitter.
Lightning is the second layer payment network of the Bitcoin network. It helps to quickly transfer small amounts.
Crypto fans insist that non-custodial wallets (like Zeus) are not required to obtain a payment service provider license. Such applications do not store client assets or private keys, unlike custodial wallets (such as Coinbase and Binance).
The previous version of Zeus is still available on the App Store. Kaludis did not say whether he will make changes to the new version to get Apple’s approval.
