Dash, one of the world's leading digital currency for payments, has released an officially approved Apple wallet with InstantSend support. Now the wallet is available for download in the App Store.

In fact, the company has now formally reversed an August 2016 decision to deny entry to the App Store for applications integrating Dash, including the official Dash wallet.

As Ryan Taylor, CEO of Dash Core, reports, Dash continues to expand its user base and ecosystem of services, that's why it is critical for the users to have an access to their Dash funds on a variety of platforms, especially mobile devices. Dash’s instant payments make Dash ideal for point-of-sale situations, which means mobile phone support for all of our users is a must.

As it turned out, several Dash-integrated wallets have been submitted to the App Store since 2015, but the majority of them were rejected.

Apple is in a difficult position. Ultimately, they are attempting to look out for user safety by preventing less reputable projects from accessing the Apple Store ecosystem ... The fact that Apple now recognizes the increased demand and importance of Dash speaks to the progress we’ve made in reaching larger and larger audiences.

The final step of the appeal process was a six-page written report submitted to the App Store at the beginning of June, informing Apple of Dash’s surge in popularity, growth in value and demand, ability to scale, and its improvements upon bitcoin as a consumer’s e-commerce currency of choice.

Crypto Trading Desk to be opened by eToro in London

eToro, a broker that proposes cryptocurrency trading in addition to foreign exchange, is to start a new over-the-counter cryptocurrency trading desk in London
18 June 2018   200

Over-the-counter supports any financial trading activity that does not take place at an exchange. Things that are traded in this way are commonly subject to less regulation and transparency than they would be if they were listed on an exchange, but for most investors there is no significant difference. 

In his interview to Business Insider CEO Yoni Assia claimed that most interest was coming from the owners of hedge funds.

We’ve actually set up our corporate team here in the UK to start setting up accounts to trade on eToro. We’ve announced that we’re launching the exchange as well so, between the exchange and the OTC desk, we’re also starting to serve more potential institutions and financial institutions. I think there is growing institutional demand and interest of public investors to understand whether they can join the party. That is something we definitely see out there. We see more and more public market players and big banks who are interested in this space and feel left out because they’re not allowed to invest in crypto or ICOs
Yoni Assia,
CEO, eToro

As a social trading broker, eToro suggests its clients the option of copying the trading behaviour of other customers, that is good if they are too occupied or not experienced. It proposes trading in foreign exchange, stocks and CFDs. About 500 specialists are engaged on the firm, the company keeps offices in the UK, Cyprus and Israel.

The company was established in 2007 and started offering Bitcoin trading in January 2014. Cryptocurrency had become popular by 2017, and the firm reported a 4,500% jump in trading volume by April, and on one day in December it acquired more new customers in a day than it had in the whole previous year. In March 2018 the firm raised $162 million to fund an expansion into Asia and in May it got into the US market with that same money. It suggests Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, XRP, Dash, Bitcoin Cash, Stellar, Ethereum Classic, NEO, and EOS for trading.

Several months ago at a conference Yoni Assia claimed: “The use of blockchain and crypto is and will become a way of life.”
