Crypto.com integrates Apple Pay for crypto purchases
Crypto.com announced the integration of Apple Pay onto its platform, allowing users to purchase crypto quickly and securely. In a new blog post, published on June 24, 2022, the exchange outlined the integration of Apple Pay and explained that the method would be used to purchase crypto within Crypto.com.
Current debit and credit card fees and trading limits would apply and users should first add their credit/debit card details to their Apple wallet on their iPhone. Once the bank card is updated to the wallet, users can quickly make crypto purchases on the Crypto.com app and pay for them securely through Apple Pay.
Cronos price plummets after Dogecoin and Shiba Inu removed from Earn
Cronos (CRO), the utility token of the Crypto.org chain, witnessed a price drop since the update announcement on Earn. As the exchange pulled Dogecoin and Shiba Inu out of the program and revised rates, users slammed the platform for the move.
Crypto analyst at HueFin evaluated the Crypto.com price chart and believes it is the beginning of the bottom for CRO. There are no indications of a rally in the three-month chart and the analyst argues that CRO price could plummet lower.
FXStreet analysts believe there is no rush to scoop up CRO at the current price level. For more information, watch this video:
