Apple is looking for a business development manager who has more than 5 years of experience working at or with alternative payment providers, such as digital wallets, BNPL, Fast Payments, cryptocurrencies.

The person would be responsible for leading the company's Wallets, Payments and Commerce team and would lead partnerships with alternative payment providers.

The appearance of the job vacancy suggests that Apple will change its attitude towards cryptocurrencies and also the way cryptographic products interact with its technologies.

Previously, it was only necessary to use third parties that issued cards in partnership with Apple Pay in order to be able to make payments in cryptocurrencies.

The announcement sparked strong speculation that Apple will soon go deeper into the crypto market. In fact, it would not be surprising if the iPhone company adapts to Apple Wallet to trade cryptocurrencies as did its competitor Samsung.
