Samsung Galaxy Store Adds Support For Tron based Dapps for EU and US Users

While one of the more controversial blockchains, TRON continues to stretch into new avenues of public outreach and exposure

Dapps developed on top of the Tron blockchain are now available via the Samsung Galaxy store on Samsung tablets and smartphones for users across the US and Europe. According to reports, a dedicated section within the Galaxy Store will allow users to easily download featured dapps.

Tron also indicated that on-chain games like Blockchain Cuties, as well as Super Player, will be available starting Monday while other dapps are set to be made available in the near future.

According to Tron's founder, Justin Sun, the partnership with Samsung is progressing well and the two firms are now moving to the next level through the integration of both ecosystems together.

The two firms announced their partnership in October last year and launched a software development kit (SDK) which allows users to directly access Tron's blockchain through their Samsung devices.

Sun also explained that the availability of dapps in one of the biggest app stores in the globe, Samsung Galaxy Store, offers an incredible opportunity for the Tron platform to access a new and expansive user base.

Sun also explained that the deal will allow Tron to access a user base that may not be from the blockchain space.

The Samsung Galaxy Store is an alternative app platform only available in Samsung devices. Apart from the Google Play Store which contains general Android apps, the Samsung Galaxy Store provides custom-designed apps for Samsung users only.

The new deal will see Samsung users based in South Korea, United States, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Philippines as well as “some countries within Europe”. This means that the dapps will not be available globally but Tron stated that the availability will vary by carrier, device, as well as the market.

Samsung is currently one of the biggest smartphones in the world with the firm shipping about 295 million smartphones last year which was more than 100 million above its arch-rival Apple.

Tron has been enhancing its market reach and recently, and controversially, acquired Steemit; leading many to believe it was a forced takeover.

Leading to a soft fork in Steem's chain in order to protect the platform from giving Justin Sun to much power. This eventually led to a hard fork, forming new crypto called HIVE.
