Apple Bringing NFTs but Web3 Developers Unhappy

🍎 In a widely expected move, Apple is closer to allowing NFTs within their App Store. The tech giant announced that NFTs can be used in iOS apps, but the company will require them to be sold through Apple’s payment rails with a 30% transaction fee to match other in-app purchases. As with other verticals, Apple is restricting the sale of NFTs to be used in apps outside of their fee structure, enraging web3 devs.

Capital Raised
