Epic vs. Apple Court Ruling Could Open Door to iOS Crypto Payments - Decrypt

Epic vs. Apple Court Ruling Could Open Door to iOS Crypto Payments - Decrypt


smart summary beta

Using cryptocurrency wallets to make payments within Apple’s iOS ecosystem could soon become a lot easier, thanks to a ruling today in the case between Fortnite developer Epic Games and the iPhone-making tech giant.

Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogersissued a permanent injunctionin the case, ruling that Apple can no longer block iOS developers’ ability to enable payments through external services.

If today’s ruling goes into effect, then Apple will be forced to allow developers to build iPhone and iPad apps that feature a wider array of payment options through external services.

However, this ruling may open up the ability to use alternative payment options that don’t route through Apple’s own payments system, such as paying directly from a cryptocurrency wallet.

In a separate ruling, Gonzalez Rogers wrote that Epic violated its developer contract with Apple, and must pay a 30% cut of the nearly $12.2 million generated through its payment option that circumvented platform rules—more than $3.6 million.
