Samsung Adds Support For Stellar Blockchain Development On Galaxy Smartphones

  • Stellar (XLM) blockchain applications will now be available on select Samsung smartphones following its addition to the tech giant’s Blockchain Keystore.
  • Four blockchain-based startups have committed to participating in the integration of the blockchain.

A statement from the Stellar Development Foundation (SDF), a non-profit organization supporting the development of Stellar blockchain, confirms its partnership with Samsung, the tech giant, to integrate the Stellar blockchain onto its Samsung Blockchain Keystore.

The integration provides select high-end Samsung smartphone users to store their private keys with the ability to access them at any time safely. Samsung Blockchain Keystore is available on the Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy S20 Series, Galaxy Fold, Galaxy Note 10 Series, Galaxy S10 series. Still, the S10 Lite is only available on a U.S. open carrier device.

Furthermore, Stellar developers will now be able to create decentralized apps and services on the Samsung Blockchain Keystore, expanding the market reach of blockchain technology.

Developers to benefit

The integration provides a gateway for users and developers to leverage the blockchain capabilities to create more efficient and safer applications. Denelle Dixon, the CEO and Executive director at SDF terms the integration “a significant step” for Stellar Network and the dApps built on it.

“With this integration, we’ve opened up to a new network of users that can benefit from the combined innovation of Stellar and Samsung,” said Denelle.

This partnership is expected to improve the user experience in building on Stellar and work with developers who have their applications on the Samsung Blockchain Keystore. The statement further reads,

“Together, [Samsung and SDF] will partner in an ongoing effort to recruit, onboard, and support developers in the Stellar ecosystem.”

So far, Stellar blockchain-based startups are showing interest in adding their applications to the Keystore, including DSTOQ, SatoshiPay, Litemint, and Nodle.

Earlier this year, the Blockchain Keystore added support for Tron (TRX) private keys and dApps in smartphones across the U.S and European Union.
