Apple’s iOS 10 update includes Circle in its iMessages messaging application.

In an attempt to keep up with competitor’s chat applications, Apple has given developers the go ahead t integrate Circle, the bitcoin payment platform into iMessages in the upcoming update. This shows that Apple has realized that the modernization of its products are going to have to include cryptocurrency in some way.

Apple has shown us that they haven’t been a big fan of the unavoidable cryptocurrency integration. One example is when Apple asked Jaxx Blockchain Wallet to remove Dash support from their iOS app. They also blocked bitcoin applications from the store, only to allow them later down the road.  Ethereum wallet apps were treated the same way earlier this year.

This integration of Circle as a third party to iMessages is expected to allow users to execute instant transactions from within the chat application. CEO of Circle Financial released this statement:
“Integration of Circle into iMessages reduces friction…There’s a hurdle to have to install a smartphone app so that I can pay my buddy and all the inputting and setup. To do it all within the iMessages app is a lot easier.”

... but what happens if buddy is in the 73% majority that does not use IOS? Then how do the iSheep communicate with buddy?

Concerned that blockchain bloat will lead to centralization? Storing less than 4 GB of data once required the budget of a superpower and a warehouse full of punched cards. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/IBM_card_storage.NARA.jpg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punched_card
