An update to the Blockchain Wallet application allows users to manage and trade virtual assets from third-party wallets on Galaxy smartphones. This makes it easier for users to access and process transactions. By importing virtual assets stored in certain cold hardware wallets to the Samsung Blockchain Wallet.
Samsung has also improved its security system, namely using Samsung Knox. The private keys used for cryptocurrencies and the DApp are encrypted. Stored in an isolated area from the main operating system called the Samsung Blockchain Keystore. The information is then protected by which processor and can only be accessed with a PIN or fingerprint of the asset owner. Whereas the Samsung Blockchain Keystore stores the private keys. This key is stored and isolated from the operating system.
Galaxy smartphones can connect to hardware wallets including the Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X. Samsung said that the Blockchain Wallet application has developed to support transactions of several cryptocurrencies. Including Bitcoin, Ethereum, ERC tokens, TRC tokens, and Tron ( TRX). “This application allows Galaxy users to explore decentralized applications (DApp) that use blockchain technology to ensure the exchange of digital assets,” reads an official statement from Samsung.
