Two days ago a group of developers announced the launch of a beta version of the Bitcoin App Store for iOS and Android. The announcement was made on Reddit and gained a massive response from the community.
The team’s major achievement is the ability to circumvent the restrictions and physical barriers created by Apple to keep the official App Store unique. Now the users are offered the ability to purchase Bitcoin-related applications on an unofficial marketplace built on the protocols of the IT giant.
Technological Response to Removal of Block Chain App
is the main initiator behind the product. He has united with Avalonic
staff to create an alternative application store. In the beginning the idea was to allow installing apps without the interference of Apple between the developers and users.
Mr. Desantis has studied carefully the Apple protocol, but once the block chain app was removed from the store he understood that his work might be appropriate for the Bitcoin environment.
It took him and his team 9 months of work and now the innovative product hopes to become legitimate.
The platform in testing mode was given the name Bit Store. In time the first wallet application will be offered to the users, but everyone willing to install it is agreeing to take part in the testing of the new service.
The variety of products offered is not going to be limited to Bitcoin-related products. The List of wallets and news applications will be augmented by software exchanged for Bitcoin.
The main aim is to offer applications suitable for all the most widespread platforms. The developers are not going to concentrate their attention only on iOS.
The majority of the Bitcoin community responded positively on the news. Some enthusiasts are ready to contribute to the project by developing apps not only for Bitcoin, but also for other virtual assets as Litecoin or Dogecoin.
However, some doubts and criticism appear in the corresponding thread on Reddit. It would be naïve to believe that Apple would not notice the alternative store and tolerate its presence on the market.
Mr. Desantis replies to all criticism that he has received consultations from experienced layers and used the gaps in the digital rules of the corporation. While he was working for Apple he gained enough knowledge of the technical and legislative aspects of the protocol.
