Now on iOS: Apple accepts Zcash as legitimate crypto currency

Users of the mobile wallet Jaxx can now manage Zcash in their wallet app in addition to Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Augur and Ethereum Classic. Zcash is supported on both iOS and Android mobile phones. The strict and time-consuming approval process for new iOS applications and updates should be familiar to most developers.

Especially applications related to crypto currencies are closely scrutinized by Apple and there is no mercy if an application or an update seems inappropriate to the tech giant. Jaxx convinced Apple of Zcash and was able to include the digital currency in the wallet portfolio.

The rapid development of the Bitcoin revolution

Only in September 2016 did the Jaxx developers have to remove the wallet function for the Bitcoin revolution, which is designed for a high degree of anonymity. A heavy blow for Dash lovers and Jaxx users. An invasion of privacy:

The developers of Jaxx and Zcash wanted to do a better job this time and have met Apple’s strict approval requirements. Both development teams worked closely and painstakingly together to ensure that Zcash was not rejected by the iOS developers in advance. With success: Apple authorized the integration of Zcash into the mobile Jaxx Wallet and classified the currency as a legitimate crypto currency.

With the introduction of Zcash, millions of iOS users will regain some of their financial privacy, one of Zcash’s most important features. In an interview with Cointelegraph, Zcash CEO Zooko Wilcox spoke about the importance of Zcash integration:

“It’s important that there are applications as easy to use as Jaxx, and I’m proud that companies like Jaxx are working to expand the Zcash ecosystem. Privacy is becoming increasingly important. It doesn’t matter whether you’re just buying a cup of coffee, shopping for the family or making business payments,” Wilcox said.

Wilcox also emphasized Jaxx’s user-friendly Bitcoin loophole interface

According to Wilcox, ease of use is a key factor for the success of Bitcoin loophole in everyday life and a big step towards mass acceptance. The wide variety of digital currencies in the Jaxx Wallet also plays an important role:

“I am delighted that anyone with a smartphone (iPhone or Android) can now send, receive and store Zcash directly on their mobile phone. Thanks to Jaxx, sending Internet funds from Face to Face or around the world has become child’s play. We were very pleased with the integration and helped Jaxx launch it from the start”.
