Another tech giant wants to go into “encrypted payments”?

Although everyone knows that the vast majority of the current cryptocurrency is a bubble, such a sharp rise has made many people begin to doubt whether the previous judgment is wrong, and even some people turn to invest in the vast sea of cryptocurrency.

According to MacRumors, Apple is looking for a business development manager with experience in cryptocurrencies to lead its “alternative payments” partnership.

In a job AD posted on Wednesday, Apple said applicants need to have five years or more of experience “working with or working with other ‘alternative Payments’ industries, such as digital wallets, BNPL, Fast Payments, cryptocurrencies, etc.”

Another qualification includes “a deep understanding of the alternative payment ecosystem, understanding the complexity of capital flows, the roles/responsibilities of resolution, relevant regulations and industry standards, and a wide range of fintech products.”

The tech giant said the manager will serve as Apple’s lead negotiator in the area of “alternative payments.”

“The Apple Wallet, Payments and Commerce (WPC) team is looking for an experienced Business Development Manager (BDM) to lead the Alternative Payments partnership,” Apple said in the job AD.

According to the report, the new employee will work on the same team as Apple Pay and iPhone Wallet at Apple’s headquarters and will work with “alternative payment partners” in the future.

Apple has long had absolute control over payments, especially in its App Store, which never accepts customers’ cryptocurrencies and forces users to use its in-app purchase mechanism.

This is the first time Apple has sought to work with cryptocurrency-related professionals. Apple’s interest in cryptocurrencies is less obvious. After Tesla invested in bitcoin this year, some analysts suggested that Apple should start offering the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrencies.

It seems that from 2021, people who understand blockchain and cryptocurrencies will be in high demand globally.

Apple has not made a public statement about its plans in the crypto area. Apple also did not comment on the report.
