Apple has long kept strict control over its payments methods, especially in its App Store where vendors must operate between narrow tramlines. This could all change though, as a recent job post by Apple hints at the tech giant’s plans to add cryptocurrencies to their payments ecosystem.

 

They’re currently looking for experienced candidates who have five or more years of experience “working in or with alternative payment providers, such as digital wallets, BNPL [buy now pay later], Fast Payments, cryptocurrency and etc.”

 

 

The development would be especially welcomed by third party app developers like Epic Games, the creators behind mobile game hits like Fortnite. A court battle between Apple and Epic Games is currently on the go, with the gaming giant fighting for an option to accept payment in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies through the App Store.
