    There are a lot of apps that are not yet fully iOS 7 compatible, yet they remain in the store. Clearly this is not the sole reason; there is something more that hasn't been made clear.

    apple has every right to remove whatever it wants from its App Store.

    Bit coin isn't an actual currency. That's like saying gold from WOW could be used to buy milk at the grocery store. And if your still going to argue that it's a real currency then Apple will treat it like real currency, if apple doesn't get 20% of every transaction, then they'll remove it. If there isn't a way for apple to legally convert bit coin into usd then they'll block it. Apple doesn't allow transactions made within iOS apps unless they approve of it and they didn't approve of it, so they removed it.

    This is wrong. Bitcoin is an actual currency. It can be exchanged to USD, EURO, etc via various exchanges, just like any other currency. The exchange rate has been hovering around $800 US for 1 whole BTC. Last I checked gold in a video game cannot claim the same.

    Banking apps are usually exempt from that regulation. It would be utterly ludicrous otherwise. Bitcoin wallet apps should not be treated any different then any other banking app.
