A Samsung employee directly involved in the project told CoinDesk Korea that the company would have been working for at least a year in a blockquain network based on digital currency tokens Ethereum.

Several technology companies and banks, such as IMB, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Santander and JP Morgan, although critics of criptomoedas in the past, already have services based on blockchain. And the fact that Samsung has a dedicated project is not surprising. South Korea, Samsung’s home land, is the fourth country in the world in terms of volume purchases of bitcoins, and Sammy is one of the top companies in the country.
These rumors are underpinned by the fact that the Galaxy S10 supports block-based digital signaturesto store private crypto-coin keys, and because Sammy’s official wallet is compatible with Ether (ETH) and Ethereum-based ERC20 tokens.
