Apple Can Benefit From the Cryptocurrency Space

Despite this, Apple hasn’t publicly disclosed its stance with digital currencies. However, many people believe that the tech company can fit in the industry.

In February, RBC Capital Markets researchers noted that Apple has a “clear opportunity” to gain market share of the crypto industry if they can tackle and provide a better buying and selling mechanism for digital currencies. The researchers said Apple could generate up to $40 billion in revenue annually from running a crypto exchange.
