Apple Pay Vice President: “We’re Watching Cryptocurrencies”

Apple Pay Vice President We're Watching Cryptocurrencies

While many giants from the technology sector, such as Samsung and IBM, are working intensively with blockchain technology, Apple is in no hurry to show interest in this direction.

But this does not mean that the company is not interested in the new industry. Apple Pay vice president Jennifer Bailey told CNN that the company is eyeing the industry.

“We are watching cryptocurrencies,” she says. – It seems interesting to us. They have promising long-term potential. “

The topic of the interview was built around the future of the payment industry and the role of the Apple Pay service in it. According to Bailey, the lion’s share of users is convinced that paying with a credit card is safer than using a mobile phone. “In reality, the opposite is true and we have to work hard to convince consumers,” she said.

Bailey admits that along with the proliferation of advanced payment services, emphasis must be placed on the technological education of society. However, she did not say anything about whether Apple would use cryptocurrency payments in its products.

In the meantime, according to the Apple Card credit card terms that were recently issued in conjunction with Goldman Sachs Investment Bank, they cannot be used to purchase cryptocurrencies.
