BitPay wallet application that provides Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash payment processing services to traders has been removed from the Google Play Market without any warnings from developers.
Representatives of BitPay did not provide updates and did not announce about any technical work, so this decision was quite unexpected for the company.
Also, users of Reddit report that the application of a company providing Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash purchase/sale services – Bitcoin.com – has disappeared from Google Play.
It is quite a strange situation, because both applications had an average rating of 4.5 stars, which indicates a fairly high degree of confidence in customer service. Although, as for Bitcoin.com, there have been numerous cases recently when users were asked to give negative rating to this application and write a corresponding comment.
The CEO of Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver accused the new Google Play policies of the incident.
“Google told us that it was because they no longer allow cryptocurrency mining apps,” wrote Ver. “I have no idea how they came under the impression that our wallet is a mining app.”
