The Internet was disbanded when rumors began to circulate as Samsung’s flagship model, the Galaxy S10, could potentially support cryptographic curves such as Bitcoin and Ethereum via a Blockchain Keystore application.

Samsung’s revealed event confirmed the existence of Blockchain Keystore app which acts as a crypto wallet for best cryptographic curves, but the most important cryptocurrency of all will not be supported at startup, according to initial reports of unboxing videos from across the web.

Samsung Blockchain Keystore Neglects Bitcoin, Ethereum Support Ready at Launch

Samsung Galaxy S10 does not officially release for another two days on March 8, 2019, but some lucky smartphone enthusiasts have already got their hands on the final retail version of Samsung’s latest flagship phone. Those with early access to the Galaxy S10 have uploaded unboxing videos to display the phone’s key features – one of which is a new crypto record called Blockchain Keystore.

A special video demonstration reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will be launched without supporting Bitcoin, the leading crypto competition through market caps and undoubtedly the most important asset in cryptospace. However, the app supports Ethereum out of the box.

It is not known at the moment whether the ERC-20 token is further supported with the Ethereum wallet address. Many other crypto tapes prioritize Ethereum because the same portfolio address is used to receive Ether (ETH) in addition to a host of ERC 20 tokens, such as Basic Attention Token (BAT), 0x (ZRX), Maker (MKR), and hundreds more.

But the absence of Bitcoin is a sharp omission, as Bitcoin has the highest market capability from some cryptographic courses, has the most regular support and the highest transaction volume. It is also the face of cryptocurrency in the public eye.

Bitcoin can finally access the Samsung Galaxy S10s Blockchain Keystore app via updates, and it can happen sooner than later. It is not uncommon for smartphone manufacturers to debut their products the same day a large software update is released. But given the limited interest in encryption courses from the public, Samsung cannot see further development of the app as a priority.

Are Blockchain and Crypto Wallets The Next Big Trend in Smartphones?

Blockchain-based smartphones that come equipped with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet are a growing trend in space, because smartphone manufacturers are trying to find a differentiating sales pitch among the ocean of similarly functioning smartphones.

In addition to Samsung’s flagship, HTC Exodus has blockchain-based features that are separated from the Android operating system, while newcomer Sirin Labs recently released the blockchain-based FINNY smartphone, and Pundi X prepares XPhone for a Q2 2019 launch. It is expected that as cryptocurrency adoption increases, other companies will follow suit, including Apple that dominated the smartphone market since its inception.
