An unfortunate event occurred last week when Apple ordered the Coinbase wallet to remove the featured listing of War Riders.
This decision is part of the company’s uncertain policy, which, apparently (even if not clear), does not allow non-fungible tokens to be promoted in applications available through the iOS store.
War Riders place itself as the next generation, post-apocalyptic MMO Strategy Game in which you can blow up cars and mine BZN Tokens. With the blockchain benefits, the players will enjoy a decentralized peer to peer marketplace for their needs. Users can trade their in-game assets by using BZN, the only form of payments left in the Wastelands.
This Monday, Coinbase wallet enabled support on dapp’s, which means that every NFT (Non-fungible token) can exist in the wallet. In the case of War Riders, NFT can be considered a vehicle, for example. While War Riders listing removed from the iOS app, it’s still available in the Android version of the Coinbase wallet.

We are not here to judge, but we believe this decision shows a lack of freedom, sometimes, when it comes to cryptocurrency, it’s like living in the middle ages. Apple refuses blockchain today, but tomorrow they will accept it. It’s a train, and whoever is left behind, stays behind.
Blockchain is offering a non-government and transparent way to revolutionize games through peer to peer economies.
Don’t forget that games unite the world, and it’s by far the most loved hobby of the last decades.
Regardless of this decision, War Riders game is conducting a successful presale. Their community is highly active and responded with many complaints against Apple through twitter and other social media platforms.
This is not the first time that Apple takes a stand against Cryptocurrencies, Trust Wallet had to remove all blockchain assets from their application, to keep existing in the iOS Store. Apple also removed SaruTobi, a game that players were able to collect Bitcoin.
