PIVX Becomes First Anonymous Proof-of-Stake Coin to Launch Dedicated iOS Wallet App

Ever since Apple tightened its guidelines on cryptocurrency apps, it’s been increasingly difficult for developers to get new wallets and other related apps onto the Apple App Store. Users of a number of crypto projects have had to rely on multi-currency apps (such as Coinomi) in order to store and trade assets on an iOS device – if they were lucky enough to have an app that supports their coin of choice at all, that is.

But that all changed for the world’s first fully anonymous proof-of-stake coin, PIVX. The popular privacy coin now finds itself nestled amongst a select few projects that have managed to get a dedicated wallet app onto the App Store. So far just 7 of the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market cap have managed to pull this off.

With mobile payments on the rise across the globe, this new development puts PIVX into an enviable position amongst the cryptocurrency elite.

The Goal – Advanced Privacy Tech For All

pivxWhen asked about the intentions behind the project and its goal for mobile growth, community leader and creative director Chad Ballantyne said: “Although PIVX is well known for its world-class leading Proof-of-Stake and privacy technology, it’s important that we get that revolutionary technology into the hands of everyday users.”

According to its official website, the PIVX project believes that financial privacy (meaning only you should know where you spend your money) is “non-negotiable” and “a basic human right.”

Ballantyne then continued, adding: “Our desire is widespread adoption, and to be the most used cryptocurrency in the world. Being on the App Store means we now have a greater opportunity to do so.”

The Path to Victory

With the antagonistic stance Apple and most mainstream corporations have taken against cryptocurrency, how did the team manage to get their wallet app approved? It seems that it was all thanks to a community member who goes by the name “Buer”. After failing an initial application to the App Store, Buer re-applied under an Italian software development LLC. With the help of the PIVX core developer Matias Furszyfer, or “Furszy” as he’s known in the community, and a number of dedicated investors, the team were finally able to get an approval from Apple.

Buer had this to say about the battle they fought: “After months of engaging with Apple Support, we finally made it. This is a huge step forward for the PIVX network and the greater blockchain community as a whole. PIVX is now accessible to anyone with an iOS device with just a few taps.”

The Future is PIVX

With a dedicated iOS wallet now in its growing arsenal, PIVX has taken one more giant leap towards its goal of getting convenient, private transactions in the hands and pockets of all of us.

As the leading private proof-of-stake cryptocurrency, the group plans to continue development towards its goals and to make true financial security and privacy something we can all enjoy.

To get your hands on the new wallet and join the PIVX financial revolution, just search the Apple App store for “PIVX”.
