Apple app store allegedly blocks Gnosis safe wallet update

3 min reading

According to Lukas Schor, a product developer at Gnosis Safe, an Ethereum-based crypto wallet provider, the company had some complications.

The Apple App store blocked a Gnosis safe crypto wallet app update because it hosted NFTs which weren’t bought inside the app. According to Lukas Schor a product developer at Ethereum-based crypto wallet provider Gnosis safe revealed the firm faced some trouble when it gave an updated version of its app to the IOS app store this month.

Even with the update have noting to do with non-fungibles, the App store marked out a sample image which showed an NFT in the app’s description section even though it had been there for “many months”. Even though the app is listed in the store with the image showing the NFT, it seems like Apple is blocking the update because of its guideline around digital content. The screenshots of Gnosis that were shared with Apple support over email stated that while “NFTs are not mentioned specifically” in its guideline’s apps are not allowed to give access to “previously purchased digital content” purchased outside the app store. 

This means that apps cannot give any NFT-related services unless they are connected with Apple payment methods. “If you choose not to implement in-app purchases, it would be appropriate to revise your app so that does not access previously purchased digital content,” the email stated. Schor stated that Gnosis will give an appeal over the decision as he called Apple to clarify its guidelines around NFTs. “Permissionless access to Web3 is core to our values, so we are willing to go the extra mile to clear this up. Simply removing NFTs from our app is definitely not an option for us.” 

Apple right now doesn’t allow inclusion of payment rails which aren’t offered by the firm in apps listed in its stores. While Gnosis doesn’t sell NFTs in its app. Apple changes a flat 30% commission of in-app purchases of digital goods and services.
