IOTA’s cryptocurrency wallet, Trinity, released a recent update about its progress. The Trinity Wallet version 1.0.0 was released on app stores on both mobile and desktop app stores last month. According to the update, it has been “very well-received”.
However, the Foundation has stated that it is working on an update that is more comprehensive than a “simple cryptocurrency wallet”.
Currently, in Version 1, they wish to address some issues before they work on and release the completely new Version 2. These areas include general maintenance and bug-fixes, along with some updates. In the report, the Foundation has stated that these updates include Ledger Nano X Bluetooth support, which will allow Trinity Mobile users to secure their funds with a Ledger Nano X. They will also release Trinity Desktop dev mode, which will make using the wallet with private tangles easier. One area they wish to address which was not present in the IOTA wallet preceding Trinity is checks on address spend statuses when sending transactions.
With regards to the ‘new and improved’ Version 2, the vision plans for “a highly modular system built around a core account module”. It will allow third party plug-ins to access core functions such as transfer initiation and chat integrated commands. Developers can thus implement their own modules to interact directly with users.
Some members of the IOTA community were hoping that Trinity would improve transaction speeds on mobile devices, improving the #455 background processes. Another user believed that the wallet should schedule transactions so that a user can issue multiple at once, without waiting for the first to be confirmed. This, they believe, would be possible if background processes were improved.
What is the Trinity Wallet?
The Trinity Wallet is IOTA’s digital wallet which displays a user’s IOTA cryptocurrency. Using the application, users can also send and receive IOTA. The Wallet released on 2 July 2019, about a month ago.

Samsung is adding to its blockchain dapp arsenal by including over a dozen new apps in its Blockchain Keystore online app market.
Launched in March 2019, Samsung’s online dapp store, Blockchain Keystore, has grown from an initial four applications to a total of seventeen. The four original dapps included a password wallet, a game, a social media app, and a billing app while new dapps include an assortment of products from social media app Anpan to entertainment app The Hunters, per CoinDesk Korea.
Samsung is steaming ahead in the space. It is one of the first large companies to develop crypto-centric products with the release of the Galaxy S10 this year.
“Although other companies have not done so yet, we have already made a blockchain wallet and released it,” Samsung told Coindesk Korea.
The tech giant is building up its wallet’s features in preparation for market competition. Samsung’s wallet system only allows for storage of Ethereum based ERC-20 tokens and protocols.
The number one competitor on the list is Apple who has yet to release a wallet, said CoinDesk Korea. In June, Apple released a ‘CryptoKit’ for iOS 13, showing adoption may not be far off for the Cupertino giant.
Early last month, LG trademarked “ThinQ Wallet,” a product that market insiders believe is the foundation for a crypto wallet and ecosystem.The trademark states the ThinQ Wallet will offer transaction, settlement, and e-money services.
China’s Huawei, another of Samsung’s competitors, has not developed a cryptographic wallet too date. Speaking with CoinDesk Korea in May, Huawei said they “have no plans to put a cryptocurrency wallet on its smartphone because the Chinese government has not authorized it.”
Samsung’s efforts are, arguably, off to a slow start. There are only 30 reviews on “Samsung blockchain wallet” on the Galaxy Store while some crypto wallets on the Google Play Store have thousands.
No Crypto Purchases With the Goldman Sachs Backed Apple Card … “Wallet apps may facilitate virtual currency storage, provided they are offered by …
Cryptocurrencies cannot be purchased with the new Apple credit card according to the American multinational technology company’s recently published customer agreement guidelines. The Apple card’s restrictions indicate that the company’s partner, Goldman Sachs, is leery toward cryptocurrencies and other “cash equivalents” like lottery tickets and casino chips.
No Crypto Purchases With the Goldman Sachs Backed Apple Card
The technology giant Apple (AAPL) recently announced the launch of a credit card, which allows people to spend credit with an annual percentage rate (APR) between 13-24%. The California-based firm revealed the card will be released at some point this month, according to the firm’s third fiscal quarter earnings call. Some of the biggest selling points for the new Apple Mastercard include: virtual use, no annual fees, and no fees for transactions and penalties. Another interesting aspect is that the card will not feature the traditional Mastercard 16-digit number or CVV code. “Thousands of Apple employees are using the Apple Card every day in a beta test and we will begin to roll out the Apple Card in August,” Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed during the earnings call on July 30. Following Cook’s statements, the Apple card’s terms of service (ToS) were published via the Goldman Sachs’ website this week.
Two of the biggest issues that stand out for people who have read the customer agreement include the restrictions against jailbreaking an iPhone and restricting “cash equivalents” like cryptocurrencies. This is first addressed in the user agreement’s first section called “Important Definitions,” which essentially defines the terms used within the agreement. “‘Cash Advance and Cash Equivalents’ means any cash advance and other cash-like transactions, including purchases of cash equivalents such as travelers checks, foreign currency, or cryptocurrency; money orders; peer to peer transfers, wire transfers or similar cash-like transactions; lottery tickets, casino gaming chips (whether physical or digital), or race track wagers or similar betting transactions,” explains the Apple card ToS.
Being against “cash equivalents” is not all that different than most traditional credit ToS agreements, and banning things like lottery purchases is standard procedure for credit cards. Some skeptics believe it’s not that Apple wants to police what you can purchase, but that the blame likely falls on Goldman Sachs. Crypto purchases using credit cards already experienced pushback from banks and regulators after it was revealed that lots of people were using charge cards to purchase bitcoin and other digital assets during the last bull run. By the end of 2017 it was revealed that Capital One, Chase, Bank of America, Lloyds Banking Group, Discover, Virgin Money, and TD Bank Canada had all banned digital currency purchases. According to Capital One, the bank sees digital assets may lead to high risks of fraud and severe losses. “Capital One continues to closely monitor developments in cryptocurrency markets and exchanges,” the bank said back in 2018. “And [Capital One] will regularly evaluate the decision as cryptocurrency markets evolve,” the bank explained.
Apple’s Long History of Cryptocurrency Restrictions
Despite Goldman Sachs involvement with Apple this time, the corporation had already had a long history with certain cryptocurrency restrictions. For instance, in February 2014, Apple had removed all the bitcoin wallets from the App Store including Blockchain.com’s Wallet, Coinbase, and Coinjar. After the wallet ban, Blockchain.com wrote a blog post which denounced Apple’s choice to remove the wallet application. “These actions by Apple once again demonstrate the anti-competitive and capricious nature of the App Store policies that are clearly focused on preserving Apple’s monopoly on payments rather than based on any consideration of the needs and desires of their users,” Blockchain.com’s scathing critique stated. “[Blockchain wallet] had no customer complaints and a broad user base. The only thing that has changed is that bitcoin has become competitive to Apple’s own payment system. By removing the Blockchain app, the only bitcoin wallet application on the App Store, Apple has eliminated competition using their monopolistic position in the market in a heavy-handed manner.”
A few months later, after the Bitcoin community got riled up and some enthusiasts even filmed Youtube videos of themselves blowing up iPhones in protest, Apple silently let crypto wallet apps back into the App Store. However, in September of 2016, Apple started banning certain types of digital currency wallets that supported coins like dash and ethereum. The creator of the Jaxx multi-cryptocurrency wallet and CEO, Anthony Di Iorio, received word from Apple at the time that his startup was required to remove support for dash. Apple again had a change of heart later, and quietly allowed wallet developers to add a variety of digital assets. On June 8, 2018, Apple finally defined its cryptocurrency rules for the App Store and gave people better clarity on what kind of crypto apps would be allowed.
“Wallet apps may facilitate virtual currency storage, provided they are offered by developers enrolled as an organization,” explained Apple’s revised App Store rules. “Exchange apps may facilitate transactions or transmissions of cryptocurrency on an approved exchange, provided they are offered by the exchange itself.”
Apple did restrict initial coin offering applications, and mobile platforms that provided crypto mining applications using an iPhone’s chipset were strictly prohibited. Any ICO application would have to be established by: “banks, securities firms, futures commission merchants (“FCM”), or other approved financial institutions.”
Apple Can Decline Transactions for Any Reason and Jailbreaking a Smartphone Could Cause Service Disruptions
As far as the Apple card is concerned, if the company or partner bank (Goldman Sachs) finds out that an individual has attempted to purchase digital currencies, the card could be shut off indefinitely. Apple may decline transactions “for any reason” and the company will advise the digital currency sales associates why the transaction was declined at the time of rejection. In addition to the cryptocurrency purchasing restrictions, the Apple user agreement highlights that if a user decides to modify, root or “jailbreak” their mobile device, Apple will disconnect the credit card from the device as it constitutes a violation of the customer agreement.

Blockchain, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency wallet platforms, says it’s launched a digital currency exchange aimed at delivering “lightning-fast” trades.
The company’s exchange, called The PIT, is the result of a behind-the-scenes effort led by a team of former executives from the New York Stock Exchange, TD Ameritrade, Google and Goldman Sachs.
According to Blockchain CEO Peter Smith, the new exchange’s matching engine Mercury can execute buy or sell orders in “40 to 50 microseconds,” an “order of magnitude faster than other market players” like Coinbase and Binance.
Founded in 2011, Blockchain initially started out with what’s known as a block explorer — kind of like an internet browser for cryptocurrency data — and then built digital wallets for users to store and exchange their crypto. It derives its name from the eponymous blockchain network that records bitcoin transactions.
