An important settlement is about to be approved in a California court. Apple decided to strike a deal in a class-action suit brought by a group of small developers in 2019 alleging that App Store rules were breaking antitrust laws.
Among the concessions Apple agreed to loosen its strict rules on users’ contact information, allowing developers to inform users about alternative means of payment for in-app purchases.
This means that users will be able to choose to pay via Apple (usually including 15-30% commission), or directly to developers. Other than helping small software firms to make a name in the App Store, this will also make it easier for them to use crypto, and NFT in particular.
We all know, games and NFTs are match made in heaven, and getting Apple client base to know them and use them will be a big step for crypto in general.
