+1 I second that.

Good luck getting the Kardashian watching, coke snorting, designer clothing wearing (Paid for with fiat credit card), money wasting sheep of the world to join us in our defiance of apple, though. Gotta look cool, ya know!

Me too. That's better than having to beg for everything isn't it Wink

I hope for the TS that King Apple will honor the request and allow to run bitcoin wallets, but the idea that you have to petition to run a certain piece of software on a device that you own is beyond ludicrous to me.

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

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

You sound jealous my friend...

Not all the people who snort coke or wear designer clothes use Apple.
Think of all the japanse people using htc , )

Why would they, when the next iPhone will undoubtedly incorporate iCoin which you can then spend anywhere you please, so long as it's controlled by the temple of Jobs.

Does Apple really continue to enforce a policy of no bitcoin wallet apps?

At some point in the past several weeks, many more of their employees must have heard of bitcoin and learned something about it, so as to differentiate it from whatever they don't like about it.  I don't think they're intrinsically against Bitcoin, and just can't imagine that they'll be against Bitcoin once the individual employees in their organization come to realize what it is and why it's so great.  They will reach a point (if not already) that their user base will start to complain loudly if they stick to that policy.  I don't expect a press release from Apple apologizing for their past rejections and trumpeting their welcome... but I do expect they will silently abandon their no-Bitcoin-wallet policy and apps should suddenly get through.

EDIT: I signed it and left a pretty good comment.  Hope it hits.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

It's widely believed that this one slipped under the radar, and my understanding is they've been avoiding sending updates to this app, just due to the risk that rocking the boat will cause it to disappear completely.

You do realize that petitions don't do shit, right? They don't even work that well in a democracy, so do you think a multinational company is going to care about a few thousand people?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
