Dan Finlay, co-founder of MetaMask and former Apple employee, is in support of the crypto sector abandoning Apple’s App Store entirely, calling Apple’s 30% in-app purchase tax a “monopoly abuse.”
Finlay responded to the news that Coinbase’s iOS Wallet software had previously been banned by Apple until it disabled NFT transfer features by saying, “I will absolutely stand in solidarity here.”
Coinbase’s Wallet said Thursday that its users will no longer be able to trade or transfer NFTs via its iOS app, stating that even if it wanted to comply with the “Apple tax,” it would be unable to do so due to Apple’s lack of integration with blockchains such as Ethereum.
“I assume [MetaMask] and every other wallet is next,” Finlay tweeted today. “I’m ready to dump the Apple ecosystem. The 30% tax is an abuse of monopoly.” It is unknown what this means for current MetaMask iOS app users.\
