Samsung has refuted claims that presume new Galaxy S10 support for cryptocurrency cold storage.
The Korean Tech Conglomerate recently filed three E.U. Trademarks for blockchain and cryptocurrency-software, according to SamMobile (Samsung Community News). The trademarks are part of an alleged plan to introduce a new cryptocurrency cold storage wallet on new Galaxy S10, but these claims were refuted by Samsung:
“Unfortunately we are unable to provide any information as the below is rumour and speculation.”
The three E.U. Trademarks appear on the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) website, titled as “Blockchain Keystone,” “Blockchain Key Box,” and “Blockchain Core.”
All three have been filed under the trademark category of “Smartphones; Software applications for use with mobile devices; Computer software platforms; Application,” but reveal few details as to the proposed services or applications.
SamMobile further exclusively confirms that the trademarks are part of development for a Samsung proprietary cryptocurrency cold storage wallet and is supposed to release with the new Galaxy S10 smartphone release.
Recently Taiwanese consumer electronics manufacturer HTC announced the release of the “first native blockchain phone.”
