War Riders crypto game removed from Coinbase’s iOS wallet app

Apple has forced Coinbase to remove its War Riders cryptocurrency game from the Coinbase Wallet app inside the App Store. While Apple has cracked down on crypto apps recently, the removal here is due to a terms and conditions violation — there is no trading, buying, or selling of cryptocurrencies allowed in Apple apps.

A message claimed to be from Coinbase said it will remove the iOS version of War Riders because it’s, “Not able to highlight Dapps that facilitate purchase of digital goods.” The app is still available, and War Riders was the only app listed inside the wallet with this kind of functionality.

War Riders is a preview of a forthcoming game, where non-fungible tokens (NFTs) represented as vehicles are collected. It was released early last week after gaining native support in the Coinbase wallet. Google has not followed in Apple’s footsteps, and the game is still available for Android through the Google Play Store.
