Apple Publishes Bitcoin Icons & CryptoKit

By CCN: Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is underway, and while most of the focus is on iOS3, Apple quietly revealed a new upgrade for developers called CryptoKit.

Apple also released its new icon set for designers which feature four bitcoin logos.

It begs the question, what are Apple’s plans for cryptocurrency integration?

Apple’s Frederic Jacobs announced new CryptoKit for developers

CryptoKit provides developers with a new toolkit for cryptographic functionality. It means app developers can integrate operations like hashing, key generation, and encryption. In particular, CryptoKit will facilitate the use of public and private key management.

“Use public-key cryptography to create and evaluate digital signatures, and to perform key exchange. In addition to working with keys stored in memory, you can also use private keys stored in and managed by the Secure Enclave.”

Viktor Radchenko, founder of TrustWallet, said CryptoKit brings Apple one step closer to full hardware wallet functionality.

“Only a few steps away before you can turn your phone into a hardware wallet.”
