Korean electronics giant Samsung have just added 3 more cryptos to their list of supported digital assets. The new cons to be added are TrueUSD (TUSD), Maker (MKR) and USD Coin (USDC), all of which are stablecoins.
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, commented on this addition by saying that it was a huge deal for the crypto community, saying:
“Not a small deal, right? Guess which phone I will be buying and recommending to all of my friends! It’s spreading.”
Currently, there are 33 types of crypto supported by the Galaxy S10, including BTC, ETH, BAT, MKR, and NPXS. Along with major cryptocurrencies, it also supports DApp tokens provided by Samsung’s Galaxy Store. Samsung’s main Dapp that’s available is called Cosmee, and it lets users earn Cosmo tokens in exchange for leaving beauty reviews in the app.
An insider of Samsung said:
“Dapps that are affiliated with the company will be added to the Samsung blockchain wallet list, and the tokens of the dapp will also be added to the Samsung blockchain wallet’s support token list.”
This latest move from Samsung may speed up crypto adoption by exposing cryptocurrencies and blockchain to its millions of customers who will purchase the flagship smartphone. Last year, Sirin Labs unveiled the Finney phone with a wallet for storing cryptocurrency, which costs $1,000. Then there’s the HTC Exodus, which has been available for preorder since last October and can only be purchased with cryptocurrency.
