The devices included by Samsung are S10e, S10, S10 + and S10 5G, as well as the Note10 and Note10 + devices. These devices will be operating with BTC functionality.
The electronics giant Samsung has given much to talk about recently thanks to its decision to integrate the functionality of Bitcoin to its most powerful devices so far. Today he has just announced a piece of news that much of the crypto community expected: he managed to integrate Bitcoin (BTC) functionality into his Blockchain-enabled smartphones.
This new offer is produced The measure comes six months after the sale of its Galaxy S10 Blockchain phone began, which includes a “Blockchain Keystore” that offers cryptocurrency storage and transactions for ether (ETH) and related ERC-20 tokens, but that set aside Bitcoin.
However, it now compensates for that exclusion. The Coindesk media reported today that the South Korean technology giant has now included Bitcoin in the development kit (SDK) for several S10 models (S10e, S10, S10 + and S10 5G), as well as Note10 and Note10 + devices.
Coindesk news media said the SDK allows Android devices to link Blockchain addresses to the Blockchain Keystore, sign cryptocurrency transactions and verify the status of the Keystore.
The Samsung company has demonstrated its interest in distributed accounting technologies and cryptocurrencies for several years. However, the launch of this wallet has been one of its most frontal projects, becoming one of the few multinationals to develop applications focused on the use of cryptocurrencies.
A limited list of countries (for now)
In the case of Latin American users, they must wait a certain time to enjoy this feature. The Blockchain features of phones are still only currently available in limited countries: the United States, Canada, Germany, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
For now, Samsung lists 17 dapps in its Keystore, and is also developing its own blockchain-based on Ethereum, indicating that it could launch its own token.
