Tech giant Samsung has just revealed details about its new cryptocurrency wallet on its new flagship phone Galaxy S10. According to details first published by CoinDesk, the wallet known as the Samsung Blockchain Wallet, will not support Bitcoin and currently support only Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens. The earlier reports had hinted at the possibility of support for Bitcoin as well.
The Samsung Blockchain Wallet will also support four decentralised apps (dapps). These include Enjin and Cosmee as expected, but the new report has mentioned that Samsung will also support CryptoKitties and payments service CoinDuck.

Undoubtedly, Samsung’s integration of a blockchain wallet on a mainstream device will garner significant attention from the mobile industry. We expect more smartphone manufacturers to integrate cryptocurrency wallets in
