Samsung Files For Cryptocurrency Trademarks For Smartphones
Samsung has filed applications for three blockchain-related trademark requests for smartphones.
From the descriptions, the three European trademark requests relate to providing crypto custody services on smartphones, which indicates that Samsung may be planning to make its entry into the ‘blockchain smartphone’ market following the recent release of HTC’s Exodus 1 and Sirin Labs’ FINNEY, both of which also offer crypto custody.
According to Galaxy Club, the three requested patents are called ‘Blockchain KeyStore‘, ‘Blockchain key box‘ and ‘Blockchain Core‘.
The names clearly hint at the direction the world’s largest smartphone maker is taking. These shows that Samsung and HTC believe that cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology will be key growth drivers going forward.
Also Galaxy Club claims that Samsung is planning to release more information about its interest in developing a range of smartphones with specialist cryptocurrency and blockchain functionality as part of the company’s ongoing mini crypto pivot.
