Top Crypto News: 09/16 - Cryptocurrency News
After making a daily high of $48,575, Bitcoin is now trading at $48,044. Meanwhile, Ethereum is up 0.9% in the past 24 hours and is trading close to $3,581.
Let’s review some interesting crypto news stories in detail for the day.
1 – Apple App Store Blocked Gnosis Safe Wallet NFTs
The Apple App store has blocked a Gnosis Safe crypto wallet for showing non-fungible tokens (NFT). As per the tweet, Apple is blocking the NFTs which are not purchased inside its app store. Gnosis Safe is a multi-sig crypto wallet which allows users to manage digital assets on Ethereum.
As per the Gnosis communication with Apple support, it was stated that any digital content bought outside the app store would not get access. Consequently, the apps which are not integrated with Apple payment methods are unable to provide any NFT-related services. Additionally, Apple also stated that crypto applications allowing NFTs should make them available as in-app purchases or remove the functionality from the applications.
Apple rejected the latest @gnosisSafe mobile app because they suddenly realized it's showing "NFTs" (user-owned), which weren't purchased via in-app purchase.
So no digital asset can ever be displayed on an Apple device unless it was purchased via "in-app purchase"?

2 – OpenSea Insider Trading of NFTs Accusation
Popular digital collectibles trading platform OpenSea has started an internal investigation after accusations of insider trading. As per the tweet, one of its top executives has been using inside knowledge to buy NFTs before they were featured on the marketplace.
OpenSea’s Head of Product, Nate Chastain, allegedly used confidential information to buy NFTs before they were promoted on the homepage and sold them at a profit. The team stated that it was conducting an immediate review of this incident. In addition, OpenSea banned its team members from buying or selling digital collectibles before they are featured or promoted on the platform and from using confidential information.
This escalated quickly. OpenSea VCs probably scrambling now. Not a good look for the NFT industry with this in the Financial Times: https://t.co/lonL1Qovxy pic.twitter.com/ILx8FsB4Nb
