Not sure to what extent this is true, but isn’t gossip like this already contagious several times among the crypto community?


After all, Apple rarely ‘gets involved’ in overly controversial matters, again making investments in Bitcoin as Tesla did a few months ago.


However, it is not impossible if this giant company is really interested in the crypto sector.


In 2019, Apple Pay Vice President Jennifer Bailey stated cryptocurrencies were an attractive asset and were their focus at the time.


Most recently, the firm is ‘looking for’ new staff with backgrounds in alternative payment provider industries such as digital wallets, BNPL, Fast Payments, cryptocurrencies, and more to fill the position of business development manager, leading Alternative Payments Collaboration.


Even if Apple is really interested in cryptocurrencies, only through the installation of a cryptocurrency exchange function in Apple Pay Wallet can the firm be able to generate $ 40 billion! A step much safer than the Apple car that is being worked on.


Anyway, this speculation failed to boost the price of Bitcoin (BTC). At the time of writing, the crypto king is trading at $ 33,165, down more than 3% in 24 hours.
