Apple Store updated rules and allowed NFT transactions in apps

The App Store has updated its usage guidelines following the release of a new version of the software for Apple iOS 16.1 devices. The updated guidelines include rules for apps that work with NFT.

Paragraph 3.1.1 states that companies can offer to create (mincing), sell and buy NFTs in their apps. Applications can allow users to view their own NFTs as well as collections of NFTs owned by others. This is possible as long as the apps do not offer buttons, links, or other methods that redirect customers to purchase mechanisms other than in-app purchases.

Thus, all NFT transactions must take place on Apple’s platform, whose commission is 30% of all in-app sales.

In addition, the rules prohibit companies from using their own tools to unlock content or features (including license keys, cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrencies, QR codes, etc.).

Work with cryptocurrencies under the new rules can only be done through exchange applications, provided that they are offered only in countries or regions where the application has a license or official permission to work with cryptocurrencies.
