Samsung phone users can now use Bitcoin (BTC) integrated features on the mobiles. The company has enabled BTC features on its blockchain-enabled smartphones.
In March 2019, Samsung launched Galaxy s10 smartphones with a “Blockchain Keystore”. The phone offers crypto storage and transactions for Ethereum (ETH) and ERC-20 related tokens. The new feature excluded the number one digital currency Bitcoin (BTC).
However, the South Korean tech giant has finally included bitcoin features to the developer kit (SDK) for various S10 modes such as S10e, S10, S10+, and S10 5G as well as Note10 and Note10+ devices. The android users can link blockchain addresses to the Blockchain Keystore, sign crypto transitions and as well as check the status. Canada, Germany, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the U.S., and the U.K. citizens are only currently able to use the feature.
The feature also supports South Korea based cryptocurrency (Klay) which was launched by the Korean messaging app Kakao. Recently Kakao’s blockchain subsidiary GroundX has announced about an upcoming wallet for Klay called Klip. the announcement also includes the information about its first decentralized app (dapp) collaboration.
Samsung is currently listing 17 dapps in its Keystore and is developing its blockchain-based on Ethereum. The company might also release its own token in upcoming days.
