Samsung Bitcoin Support

Samsung has added Bitcoin support to its decentralized app store, Blockchain Keystore.

According to information on the Samsung Developers website, the Keystore now supports Bitcoin as well as Klaytn, the cryptocurrency launched by Korean internet giant Kakao.

According to the information, Samsung’s Blockchain Keystore is supported by six of its devices — Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G, Note10 and Note10+ — and across six jurisdictions: Germany, Canada, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, United States and the United Kingdom.

The Keystore was first released in July as part of Samsung’s blockchain and decentralized application (DApp) Software Development Kit (SDK), which provides account management as well as backup, payment and digital signature facilitation. The Keystore had only supported the Ethereum blockchain.

Samsung had expanded SDK with two new services which are an AI-powered digital analytics DApp dubbed “Jupiter” and a QR code-based peer-to-peer wallet, “Mars,”. They were integrated into the Galaxy S10 and recent versions of Samsung smartphones.
