Apple has just explicitly banned applications from using their platforms for the mining of crypto money, in line with the new revision of its guidelines, affecting iOS, MacOS, tvOS and watchOS systems.
Apple prevents the mining of cryptocurrency on all its platforms through new rules
In this regard, it has established a number of guidelines. First, virtual wallet applications will be allowed, but only to developers registered as organizations.
Mining applications of crypto money will be allowed to perform mining outside of Apple devices. It will also allow specific applications to perform transactions with crypto money.
Fourthly, applications relating to currency offerings, trading and other transactions in kryptonite securities must belong to banks, companies or other financial and legal institutions.
And finally, crypto money applications cannot offer virtual currencies to users to perform actions such as downloading other applications, getting other users to download the application or increased activity on social networks, as summarized by The Verge.
With this, Apple wants to make it quite clear what is allowed and what is not allowed in its entire ecosystem in all matters relating to kryptonite mining, although there may be cases where users can consent to the use of their devices for kryptonite mining, as happened months ago with Calendar 2, whose application was removed.
These rules could result in the removal of other applications that still exist in the App Store.
