If Apple were an animal in the Bitcoin kingdom it would be a tree-dwelling sloth. Moving at an incomprehensively slow pace to join in the cryptocurrency revolution and opting instead to disrupt the credit card industry with the underwhelming Apple Card.

Offering generations of smartphone users a custodial hardware hot wallet, the company seemed to have lost its way. However, the world’s slowest mammal may be responding to Bitcoin’s mating cry, at last, adding the symbol to its latest icon set.
