Apple entering into crypto?
![image.png](https://ipfs.busy.org/ipfs/QmVbTxB21xwgL5rm6g1B8PxWa8M3zRCyLR2bwbtMxCdFtr)

Apple announced they will be releasing a "cryptographic" development tool in iOS 13 named **CryptoKit** at its Worldwide Developers Conference.

The CryptoKit will allow developers to implement hashing, key generation, exchange, and encryption in iOS apps.  Previously developers were limited to the **CommonCrypto** framework provided by Apple which had a lot of the same functionality but lacked important features.

*"For the first time, developers can leverage the secure enclave to manage a user’s keys in an iPhone, achieving a similar level of security to hardware wallets,"*
<sub>- Alejandro Machado, co-founder at Open Money Initiative</sub>

From what I understand, this will mostly benefit developers using Apple's own Swift language but may open the door to better integration with hardware products like Trezor & Ledger as well as software solutions like Bread Wallet.

Samsung already has Cryptocurrency hardware wallet functionality in their latest model although it only supports Ethereum (#fail).

This is what a good Big Tech company does re Crypto - helps developers.

Unlike what a BAD Big Tech company such as Facebook does: bans crypto industry ads and defames the industry as scammers all while secretly developing it own fake crypto coin.

If you think they shouldn't be able to get away with it then join the [Crypto Class Action](https://www.jpbliberty.com/crypto-ad-ban-case) against them.

Its as simple as sending an encrypted memo to @jpbliberty saying you want to join and providing contact details.

Apple has sort of been hostile to crypto apps from what I've heard. Hopefully they are being more open. Mobile adoption will allow for a while lotta people to use this tech.

I heard about this. It’s all coming together nicely as these big companies start integrating crypto/blockchain tech into their products. Slowly we make our way into the hands of the masses, just like the internet.

Ah yes it for sure was only a matter of time. Apple is always about 1-3 years behinds android lol so it makes sense they are finally talking about it after the S10 was released
