Is Apple buying Bitcoin?

The cryptocurrency space is seemingly an ever-growing market, and companies like Square Inc. and PayPal Holdings Inc. have already validated the exchange model. Nevertheless, with Apple Wallet, the iPhone seller will immediately lead the market with its potential. Moreover, Apple is known for providing the best possible security and privacy services to its customers which would be an added bonus.

In a note to its client, the Analyst Mitch Steves said: "The wallet initiative appears to be a clear multi-billion dollar opportunity for the firm (potential for well over $40 billion in annual revenue with limited R&D)." He also mentioned that if the tech giant develops its Apple Wallet into a crypto exchange platform, it will create a sizable growth for the market.
