App Store Outages and Missing Crypto Wallets: What to Do? BTCWires Explains

Trust Wallet, a crypto wallet app rated at 4.7 stars and with a total of 166,379 reviews – take from that what you will – has reported on its official Twitter page and community webpage that the app became unavailable “on March 21, 2022 at 1pm PST”, which seems to match the time of the outage reported by more than 3,000 users on Downdetector

BTC Wires, a leading online digital platform that provides information about crypto and blockchain technology, examined possible reasons in the Trust Wallet case, and came up with steps that crypto users can take. 

What Was the Reason?

It is still uncertain if the above mentioned events are related, though the company behind Trust Wallet seems committed to assuring its users that the problem will be solved in “a timely manner”, and transactions have been confirmed to be working just fine. 

Another possible explanation for the sudden disappearance of the app from the store might be related to App Store guidelines regarding the use of third-party payment services, which seems to be the case, at least for Trust Wallet, with the words:

“The app does not sell any crypto, you will be redirected to a 3rd party provider” hanging over its official community post forewarning crypto adventures just as those of Dante in the famous Italian comedy. 

Apple has reportedly restricted the use of third-party payment integrations when there's no physical exchange of goods or services, making adjustments to their policies whenever legally obliged and/or pressured, as is the case in the Netherlands and in South Korea. However possible for this to be the case surrounding the issue with some wallets, nothing has been disclosed by Apple or by any other company that would confirm this theory. 

Are Other Wallets at Risk?

Nevertheless, many users of other wallets and wallet services embedded with exchange platforms have understandably become wary about the situation, which expands the proportion of need-to-know information one requires before trusting any amount of money to a service. 

With that in mind, here are a couple of options one can rely on to not have that issue:

  • NOW Wallet: Since the company behind the wallet is likewise behind the exchange platform, they do not depend on a third party to execute the payments, thus they are compliant with App Store guidelines. The wallet supports nearly 400 cryptocurrencies, about 60 fiat currencies, and NFTs. Since it is non-custodial, the user has full control of the private keys and the funds. There are other benefits to this wallet as well, such as its simplicity and straightforward app design, making the learning curve accessible even to the most tech-averse person.
  • Coinbase Wallet: Coinbase is a staple in the crypto market by now, and its Wallet product, in opposition to the regular Coinbase service, is a DEX, thus allowing crypto swapping just as other DEXs. It supports all ERC-20 tokens (including USDC and DAI), BTC, BCH, LTC, XRP, XLM, and DOGE. Since its inception, it has been known for its appeal among beginners and is well regarded by its users.
  • eToro Money Crypto Wallet: Another great option for those who like stability. eToro, like Coinbase, has established itself in the crypto market as a reliable broker service and a wallet. It's trustworthy, supports over 500 crypto pairs, and is secure. On the other hand, it might be too much of a challenge for beginners.
  • Gemini Wallet: If you are out there looking for something different, this might be what you're looking for. Gemini offers a hot wallet insurance in case of a security breach or hack, which is an added bonus when dealing with money on the internet. There is good and bad in this wallet. Some of the fees can be quite high, and you don't get as many options of currencies (about 70 crypto assets) and they're not as variable as you would get with other wallets. Despite this, it still has a reputation as a reliable wallet.
  • Ledger Live Wallet: Now if you are in for something more niche, you might like Ledger Live. The wallet is powered by Ledger, the most reliable hardware wallet available, supports 1,800 coins & tokens, and uses advanced security features. The only downside is the lack of online customer support.

Those are not the only alternatives but are currently some of the most reliable ones out there. The perfect fit for you will largely depend on your crypto interests, and while the aforementioned wallets deal with a wide range of assets, you should always do your own research and see what better matches your needs.

While initially used in bus fare payment system, its usage has later been expanded into a wide range of payments such as those for other public transports, car parks, government services, retail consumptions, and food and beverage services. There are currently more than three million MP Cards in issue.

The first mobile payment platform in Macau, Macau e-wallet ("MPay"), was subsequently issued by Macau Pass, it was an innovated product which led Macau into the development of e-payment. The major functions of MPay cover on-line and off-line payments, transfers, utility payments like telephone, water, electricity and gas bills and public transports. Currently over 90% of Macau residents are registered MPay users. Its cross-border operation between Hong Kong and Mainland China has been approved by the People's Bank of China and the Monetary Authority of Macao ("AMCM") in 2019, the first financial institution having offshore headquarters to be granted the right to use its offshore e-wallet across the border in Mainland China. The completion of the acquisition will create tremendous synergies to AGTech's existing businesses and broaden the revenue base of the Group through integrations along the value chain.

"As a local business, Macau Pass's years-long investment in the community and economy of Macau has borne fruitful results, and is fully recognized and highly appreciated by AGTech." praised Mr. Sun Ho, Chairman and CEO of AGTech. "Over the years, Macau Pass has been actively involving in local fintech industry, expanding its e-payment applications to different levels of Macau people's daily lives. AGTech shares Macau Pass's ideology of livelihood services-oriented. While enabling a stable transition of Macau Pass, we will cooperate with the local government to turn Macau into a smart city of the 21st century. Through innovation, we will strive to facilitate the integration of Macau Pass, and will invest more resources into integrated payment scenarios that combine on-line and off-line payments, as well as to create a hybrid platform that integrates mobile payment, e-commerce and local services for users and merchants. We will expand mobile payment services to support merchants and SMEs to leverage its advantages in order to speed up services and the development of digitization and intelligence management to meet the increasing consumer demand in the Greater Bay Area. This can provide users with stable, secure and efficient mobile payment experiences, while giving Macau our support in its next new phase of digital economy."

According to AMCM's figures published in February this year, the number of mobile payment transactions in Macau has increased from approximately 65.5 million in 2020 to approximately 193 million in 2021, representing a year-on-year increase of 194%; the total transaction value has increased from approximately MOP 6.3 billion in 2020 to approximately MOP 18.5 billion in 2021, representing a year-on-year increase of 192%. These figures showcase increasing trends in both the frequency and the transaction value of mobile payments in Macau.

"The completion of Macau Pass acquisition marks an important milestone for AGTech. It lays a solid foundation for the Group's future strategic expansion into payment business and financial services ecosystem. Under the policy of "Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area", we believe that Macau Pass will become the leader of local fintech innovation to propel the appropriate diversification of Macau's economy and the growth of local fintech industry. At the same time, it can also deepen the interconnection of mobile financial infrastructure of Macau, Greater Bay Area, Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone and Mainland China. From here, we are preparing ourselves to tap into a market with 1.4 billion potential users and to jointly explore overseas opportunities and facilitate international grand economic cycle." added Mr. Sun Ho.

90’s Ape Club – An NFT collection for the 90’s kid to reshape the industry

The 90's Ape Club team is excited to introduce their collection of characters inspired from the 90's which have been designed by award winning Artist Keivo, who was named Young Cannes Lions Global 2021 Winner in Digital Art.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO

The 90's was a magical time – the birth of the internet created the innovation of the website and email with the rise of CompuServe, Prodigy, AOL and more.

For the first time, people could make friends around the globe in a much more meaningful and connected way – not through pen pal letters or the digital equivalent of bulletin boards, but instead through chat rooms and GeoCities and TriPod – searches still had to be done through HotBot or AltaVista and your brand new 28.8 baud model on your brand new Intel Pentium machine running Windows 95 was Rad and L33T.

For many of us, culture and music reached a pinnacle – MTV was still playing music videos.  You probably still listen to the music from that age - 2Pac and Biggie, WuTang and Big L – you remember Ja Rule and DMX, Brittany and No Doubt – Nirvana and Soundgarden and STP and when you hear Jock Jamz you're instantly transported back to a grade school or high school sports game – or maybe Mariah Carey's Hero” comes on the radio and you remember your first slow dances at the 8th grade mixer or maybe just remember watching Dennis Rodman and Michael Jordan go HAM on the court – or the bright neon scrunchies and Hot Topic studded belts or chain wallets on JNCO pants that sagged so low they defied the physics being taught in your high school classroom.

Sound familiar? You might just be a 90s kid – or maybe you wish you were. The 90s Ape Club was created as a place for 90s kids (both in age and spirit) to come together for the next big rise of the internet: into the Metaverse.

Their goal is to rekindle that nostalgia and control our own destiny in the Metaverse with multicultural collaboration, 90s themed parties around the globe, and building an impassioned vision of the future. They want to make sure that this important era is preserved on the blockchain forever – and you can be part of it.

The collection contains 5,555 apes generated by Artificial Intelligence. The first 1,000 were minted in the OG mint and boast special Genesis traits, making them extremely rare.

What was the mint price for Genesis Apes?
0.055 ETH 

What will be the mint price for presale and public sale?
Presale: 0.06 ETH Public sale: 0.08 ETH

Whitelisted members can mint up to 3 Apes per wallet during presale.

Any Apes that are not minted by whitelist members will be available in the public mint. During this mint, users will be able to purchase up to 10 Apes per wallet.

Utilities

The goal is to share experiences and knowledge with the members as well as educate them about topics such as mental health and security in the NFT space, as well as the future of the metaverse.

Gaming

The team are currently developing their exclusive P2E game which is set in an alternative 1991 Hollywood called ‘Apewood'. You will assume the role of your NFT hero on a revenge rampage against the underworld. It will be inspired by some of GameBoys classics back in the 90's. Teasers of the game will be being released to the community in the near future. The game is set to be released in Q4.
