Apple banned external payments on its platform in 2020, claiming that it was necessary to ensure user security. However, the ban caused outrage among developers and users, as it forced them to use only Apple’s internal payment systems and pay high fees for this.
How NFT helped to circumvent the ban on external payments on Apple
Recently, NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and cryptocurrencies have become increasingly popular. This has become possible thanks to blockchain technology, which allows storing data safely and securely. Since NFTs and cryptocurrencies do not require Apple’s internal payment systems, they have become an alternative solution for external payments on the Apple platform.
How the ban on external payments will affect users
Lifting the ban on external payments on Apple’s platform will allow developers and users to make payments using any payment system they find most convenient and reliable. It will also increase competition and reduce fees for users and developers who previously had to use only Apple’s internal payment system.
Apple’s ban on external payments was a challenge for users and developers looking for alternative solutions to make external payments. Fortunately, the growing popularity of NFTs and cryptocurrencies has made it possible to circumvent the ban and make secure external payments without using Apple’s internal payment system.
