Apple Issues New App Store Rules for Crypto and NFT Payments

  • Crypto-exchange apps need to have necessary regional licenses
  • NFT sales have to go through Apple’s in-app purchase system

Apple Inc. updated its App Store guidelines Monday with new and clearer language explaining its policy toward cryptocurrency trading and non-fungible tokens.

The Cupertino, California-based company has no issue with crypto exchanges or any other apps that allow the trading of digital tokens and currencies -- provided those exchanges have the requisite regional licenses to operate where the app is distributed.
