MetaMask, one of the world’s most popular crypto wallets, finds itself in an unexpected situation. Apple App Store has removed MetaMask from its platform, and no official explanation has been provided regarding this development.
If you’ve deleted the MetaMask application from the App Store, you won’t be able to reinstall it. MetaMask users and the crypto community are eagerly awaiting the reasons behind this sudden removal.
Apple App Store and Crypto Applications
The App Store has had its share of issues with crypto applications in the past. In 2022, Coinbase’s wallet application faced a similar situation when it was being published on the App Store.
It’s worth noting that Trust Wallet had a similar experience as well. During that time, Trust Wallet was briefly removed from the Apple App Store but was later reinstated. It is believed that MetaMask, facing a situation similar to these instances, may also be able to resolve the issue.
Support Statements by MetaMask Co-Founder Dan Finlay
In the past, Dan Finlay, the co-founder of MetaMask, had made statements indicating that Apple would support the crypto community. However, with MetaMask’s removal from the App Store, the validity of these support statements has become a matter of curiosity within the community.
This Isn’t the First Challenge for MetaMask
This is not the first challenge that MetaMask has faced in relation to crypto applications. In 2019, they encountered a similar situation with the Android Store. The outcome of MetaMask’s removal from the App Store remains to be seen.
There is no detailed information about the reason for the ban yet, and we will continue to keep you informed as more details emerge.
Metamask Broke its Silence
The removal of the application from the App Store may have worried users, but according to the announcement made on MetaMask’s Twitter address, it was stated that this situation does not have any malicious intent. The MetaMask team reported that they are working diligently to resolve the issue and expect the application to return to the App Store as soon as possible.
