Samsung integrates Bitcoin functionality into S10 models

As it became known, the technology giant Samsung has integrated Bitcoin support into S10 models.

Samsung has officially integrated Bitcoin functionality into its S10 models. This message comes from a message published by Decenter on August 29, 2019. However, this feature is currently only available in a few countries.

South Korean technology giant Samsung has integrated Bitcoin into its Blockchain Keystore Software Development Kit (SDK). The company has also confirmed that the feature will also be integrated into the latest Samsung Note 10 device.

The news was first released on the “Samsung Developer” channel on August 14, along with confirmation from Kakao Klaytn, the blockchain platform of South Korea’s Cocoa Messengers.

The Samsung Blockchain Wallet was originally developed for Ethereum and ERC20 tokens. From now on, all apps developed with the kit can also use Bitcoin in addition to Ethereum and the tokens of Klaytn Klay.

The SDK is available for various S10 models as well as the 10 and 10+ grades and supports 33 cryptocurrencies. Together with those, the Wallet also supports distributed applications (dApps), which can be found in the Galaxy Store.

Currently, however, the services are only available in Canada, Germany, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, USA and the United Kingdom. However, it can be assumed that more countries will join soon.

Samsung seems to be getting more and more involved in blockchain technology. So on 17 June, the introduction of its own token, the Samsung Coin, is being considered. This should run on the Ehtereum Blockchain.

Samsung took another step in that direction by investing around $ 2.9 million in hardware wallet maker Ledger.
