There is a rumor that the Samsung Galaxy S10 mobile will support cryptocurrencies with the help of Blockchain Keystore application that will allow them to support Bitcoin and Ethereum. As of now, Samsung denied the rumors of having a digital money wallet on the Galaxy S10.
The cryptocurrency support won’t be available at the time of launch, but it will be there after some time. Samsung Galaxy S10 is scheduled to launch tomorrow, 8th March. But some smartphone freaks somehow managed to get the final retail version of the S10, and they uploaded the unboxing videos over the internet. Those videos reveal that the handset does not support Bitcoin, but it supports Ethereum.
S10 having Ethereum Wallet Support
The mobile supports Ethereum as many crypto wallets support it. Ethereum has got so much support due to the usage of same wallet address for receiving Ether. The ERC-20 tokens are used to support the wallets, and these tokens include Basic Attention Token, ox, Maker, and many more.
However, the omission of Bitcoin is quite shocking as it has the highest marketcap and transaction volume compared to other cryptocurrencies. But, hopefully, it would be included in the mobile in the form of a major software update.
Blockchain-based mobiles are trending
It seems like smartphone manufacturers have understood the potential of Blockchain and they started implementing it as a new trend. Besides Samsung, HTC also added the functionality of Blockchain in HTC Exodus. The inclusion of Blockchain feature has been separated from the Android operating system. Sirin labs have also introduced a mobile named FINNY with Blockchain feature, and Pundi X is also planning to launch XPhone with this feature.
