Samsung Adds Bitcoin to the Blockchain Keystore

The major South Korean technology company has secretly added Bitcoin to its decentralized app store, the Blockchain Keystore. Based on the latest information from the Samsung Developer site, the Keystore now supports the addition of Bitcoin such as Klaytn, Cryptocurrency owned by a large Korean internet company, namely Cocoa. Now for you blockchain users, now you can trade bitcoin, because Samsung has added it as of August 14th. But keep in mind the region and type of smartphone used, because the application can only be accessed in a few countries by using some of Samsung's latest smartphones.

Regions and Devices that Could Access

As reported by the site, Samsung Blockchain Keystore can be accessed by six devices, namely Galaxy S10e, S10, S10 +, S10 5G, Note10 and Note10 + which are its flagship products. In addition, Samsung only allows a number of countries that can access its Blockchain Keystor, such as Canada, Germany, South Korea, Spain, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

The keystore was first introduced in July this year as part of Samsung's blockchain platform and decentralized application (DApp). The decentralized application is in the form of a Software Development Kit (SDK), which provides account management such as backups, payments, and digital signature facilities. Earlier this month, Samsung expanded the SDK with two new services, AI-powered DApp digital analytics and QR code-based peer-to-peer wallet. The two services are each given the designation, "Jupiter" for DApp and "Mars" for the peer-to-peer wallet.

In addition, the two services can be integrated into the Galaxy S10 and the latest mobile phones.

Blockchain on Smartphones

Along with Samsung, Taiwanese consumer electronics giant, HTC has also launched a blockchain-powered smartphone, nicknamed "Exodus," which was launched in the fall of 2018.

Israeli blockchain startup Sirin Labs launched the Finney blockchain smartphone in the winter of 2018 but was soon reportedly forced to lay off a quarter of that during the 2018-19 cryptocurrency bear market.
