Samsung Expands Its Blockchain DApp Kit With New Services, Updates Wallet
South Korean tech giant Samsung has expanded its blockchain and decentralized application Software Development Kit with two new services.
Galaxy of multi-service blockchain apps
Per the press release shared with Cointelegraph on Aug. 6, Samsung has integrated a digital analytics DApp dubbed “Jupiter” and a QR code-based password wallet “Mars” into Galaxy S10 and newer version of Samsung smartphones.
Jupiter utilizes TrustVerse’s artificial intelligence powered price prediction and analytics build on Microsoft Azure architecture. The DApp enables users to track volatility of digital assets — including Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH), among others — by analyzing past records of market movements.
The service thus provides forecasts of how cryptocurrency prices will change over the course of several hours. Samsung’s users will reportedly soon be able to receive in-depth analysis reports on blockchain token market and prices.
The second app, Mars, lets users conduct peer-to-peer cryptocurrency transfers through QR code. “Complex address input can be avoided just by clicking on a QR code and therefore, typo error or entering wrong address can be avoided,” the release explains.
Marking growing adoption of blockchain
Samsung initially announced its DApp kit in July, stating that it allows for account management and backup, payment and digital signature facilitation, Samsung Keystore and other cold wallet support.
That same month, Cointelegraph reported that Samsung and cryptocurrency payments startup Pundi X’s new cooperation will allow users to integrate the XWallet app to their Samsung Blockchain Wallet.
Samsung first revealed that Galaxy S10 series will have wallet functions for digital currencies in February. Later in May, news broke that Samsung’s budget smartphones will also feature cryptocurrency and blockchain features.
