Thedarknet marketplace (DNM) Oasis has gone offline, and many believe the administrators left with the escrow holdings. This includes a rumored 150 BTC and some Monero (XMR) as well. During the time Oasis went offline, the dark web’s AlphaBay, Hansa and Dream also went down for short periods. All these marketplaces minus Oasis have since come back online.
Immediately after, the markets suffered hiccups, many in the cryptocurrency community and some crypto-publications tethered the Oasis exit to Monero. Because Oasis was one of the first to announce Monero integration, some skeptics accused the XMR community of involvement. The Monero community and developers such as Riccardo Spagni, a.k.a. FluffyPony, have openly disputed these rumors.
XMR Integrations Continue
However, since thecryptocurrency’s dip in price and negative news, the community also received positive news. On October 11, multi-currency wallet Jaxx announced it will soon integrate Monero.
Early that morning Jaxx CEO Anthony Di Iorio stated , “Great news for Monero! My Apple contact called to say Monero (XMR) is officially approved for App Store.” Following Di Iorios’ tweet, Jaxx announced it would integrate XMR on all nine platforms, including iOS.

According to the Loop Insight publication, an unnamed developer stated, “they found evidence of App Store review manipulation.” The news outlet Loop Insight also claimed Apple has proof.
