Apple is no stranger to asserting its dominance. That’s exactly what the tech giant did this week when it announced new, stringent guidelines for NFT transactions in the iOS App Store, marking the first time the company has taken any sort of substantial position on web3.
We hopped on the mic for the Thursday episode of Chain Reaction to discuss the new rules and how they could make life harder for NFT exchanges and crypto companies looking to grow through mobile adoption.
You can listen to the full episode below:
On this Thursday’s show, we also discussed:
- Reddit’s surprisingly successful foray into the NFT space in light of new metrics the company shared onstage at Disrupt
- The U.K.’s new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, and whether he’ll live up to the hype he’s received from the crypto community
