Against the background of the increasing popularity in society of this topic, financial analyst at RBC Capital Markets Mitch Steves said that Apple should take advantage of all this by releasing its own cryptocurrency.
“Apple’s user base is 1.5 billion, and even if we assume that only 200 million users make transactions, that’s 6.66 times more than Square. Consequently, the potential income could exceed $ 40 billion per year, ”says Mitch.
