The Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone blockchain key store now supports bitcoin (BTC) in addition to Ethereum (ETH) and ERC-20 chips.
The release of Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones caused a sensation in the cryptographic community this spring. Play currency Enjin Coin (ENJ) was able to temporarily increase its value thanks to cooperation with Samsung.
At that time, the "Blockchain Keystore" was also featured. It allows users of Galaxy Ethereum Smartphones (ETH) and associated ERC-20 tokens to store and send tokens. Bitcoin (BTC), by far the largest cryptocurrency, has been left for the moment.
Bitcoin Features (BTC) now available
But this has since been modified in a relatively discreet way. Samsung has now integrated Bitcoin features into the development kit (SDK) of several S10 models (S10e, S10, S10, S10 + and S10 5G) as well as Note10 and Note10 + series.
The SDK allows Android devices to link block string addresses to the block string key store, sign transactions, and check the keystore status.
The blockchain features of smartphones are currently only available in some countries, but fortunately this also includes Germany and Switzerland. The other states are Canada, South Korea, Spain, the United States and Great Britain.
Samsung also lists 17 dApps in its keystore and develops its own block chain based on Ethereum. Samsung could also work on its own cryptocurrency, as indicated by the group's anonymous sources in April.
Do you think that the cryptographic wallets will be preinstalled in each new smartphone? Write us your thoughts in the comments column!
