Sky Mavis Executive Expects More Progress in Future

The rules implemented by the App Store may have been stringent for the adoption of a few blockchain-compatible apps as the firm has restrictions over where and how digital assets such as non-fungible tokens can be bought with the use of its devices. As per reports, it demanded a 30% decrease in the case of in-app sales.
