Apple ‘watching cryptocurrency’, Apple Pay chief says

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Your article is a more reasoned one that most on this topic. Personally I find crypto currencies totally uninteresting.

    My own conclusion is I believe much the same as yours that this would be away for Apple to ’embrace and extend’ ever further so as to control ever more of the eco system.

    By the way, I am surprised Jennifer Bailey is unaware of this – and more specifically this –

    She no longer has an excuse 🙂

    In theory even an Apple Card could be used. (Here’s hoping it comes to the UK soon.)

      My problem wit that — particularly (but not excessively) the Big Issue is that vendors are required to purchase their own device — and keep and maintain it — even though they are on the streets.

      I think this underlines the real need to figure out imaginative solutions to ensure the most vulnerable members of society are not trapped on the other side of the digital divide. Or (better) do something to ensure they aren’t as vulnerable any more (such as employment opportunities, homes, support, counselling and more).

      Though it is good that these sorts of solutions are emerging.
