Coinbase Wallet is a mobile app that provides quick and easy access to crypto and NFT assets for owners on the go. It also allows users to send and receive assets as part of its service. Earlier today, iOS users began to notice that they were being prevented from exchanging NFTs on Coinbase Wallet. Coinbase has released a statement saying that this function is being blocked by Apple due to a discrepancy over its in-app purchase system.
The Coinbase Wallet Twitter account rolled out a thread of tweets earlier today that explained the ongoing issue preventing iOS users from sending NFTs on the platform. “This is because Apple blocked our last app release until we disabled the feature.” It’s a concerning development for NFT owners that utilize the Coinbase Wallet app on iOS. The company goes on to explain the situation in further detail.
Coinbase wraps things up by stating that the company hopes that this is just some sort of oversight or misunderstanding on Apple’s part. If so, this wouldn’t even be the first time this week that Apple has found itself in such a situation. Twitter CEO Elon Musk stated just days ago that Apple was threatening to pull the social media platform from the App Store, but that turned out not to be the case following an in-person meeting between Tim Cook and Elon Musk.
