Samsung Galaxy S10 Wallet Will Only Be Available For Canada, Korea And the US
It seems that the new Samsung S10 cryptocurrency wallet will be available only for three countries: Canada, the United States, and South Korea. Last month, the tech giant Samsung launched the brand new Galaxy S10 with a crypto-wallet functionality included. The crypto space was very excited about it and the possibilities that it would open to increase adoption around the world.
Canada, Korea, And The U.S. Would Have The Wallet Functionality
Thousands of buyers from all over the world and different countries were expecting to have a smartphone with cold wallet capabilities included in it. However, this is something that will not happen for all users, at least for some time.
The new phone is available in 70 countries and the intention is to reach 130 countries by the end of March. However, there are several buyers around the world that are disappointed about the fact that the crypto wallet integration will only be available for individuals in the United States, Canada, and Korea.
The information was released by Samsung Australia in a tweet answering a customer that asked about the functionality.
Samsung Australia commented about it:
“Unfortunately, this feature is not available to customers in Australia. This stage is only available to the US, Canada, and Korea. If any updates are available you will be notified.”
This stage it is only available to the US, Canada and Korea. If any updates are available you will be notified.

The company did not provide information regarding the places in which the wallet functionality would be available. When they launched the smartphone they informed that the crypto wallet would be available to Samsung S10 users independently from the country (since they did not specify otherwise).
Users in Canada, Korea, and the United States can access the functionality by looking in Phone Settings the Biometrics and Security section. After it, users can download the Blockchain Keystore App from the Android Play Store.
Crypto enthusiasts believed that this integrated crypto wallet would help increase the adoption of virtual currencies around the world. Indeed, the digital asset Enjin (ENJ) experienced a strong price increase after the announcement because the technology powering the Samsung Galaxy S10 Wallet has been developed by Enjin.
