Until now, Apple has not said anything about this, so this is still an unconfirmed rumor. However, if this turns out to be true, it could certainly be an extremely powerful bullish driver for Bitcoin in particular and the cryptocurrency market in general.
Going back to the past, at the beginning of February 2021, the price of BTC also increased by 20% the day after Tesla announced it had spent $ 1.5 billion to buy Bitcoin. It was this event that contributed to the huge growth momentum for Bitcoin, helping the cryptocurrency reach an all-time high of $64,800 in mid-April 2021. Therefore, a lot of people are expecting Apple to do the same thing again.
However, the CEO of OnChain Capital, Ran Neuner, insists that this will not happen, at least for the time being. Also agreeing with Ran Neuner is DevOps engineer Alexander Ross when he thinks that investing in Bitcoin is a step too far for an Apple corporation.
In fact, the belief that Apple bought Bitcoin is not without basis at all. By going back to 2019, Apple Play Vice President Jennifer Bailey also shared that Apple finds cryptocurrency very interesting and they are interested in it.
In addition, at the end of May, Apple posted for the position of Director of Business Development. One of the job requirements is to have more than 5 years of experience working with alternative payment solution providers, including cryptocurrencies.
However, apart from hiring, Apple does not have any other certain moves for Bitcoin or the crypto market.
