Smartphone manufacturer Samsung has partnered blockchain phone company – Pundi X to integrate the XWallet in the Galaxy S10.
Announced in a blog post, Pundi X says the integration of its cryptocurrency wallet with the Samsung blockchain wallet will foster the growing adoption of the technology and make the XWallet available on the Galaxy S10 blockchain app options.
The publication reads:
This presents a unique opportunity to push blockchain technology and blockcahin-based digital assets into the mainstream, reaching millions of Samsung smartphone users round the world…Samsung Galaxy S10 users can move cryptocurrencies stored in the Samsung Blockchain Wallet into the XWallet, which they can then use as a checking account for instant crypto transactions with the PundiX’s global payment ecosystem.
At this time, the Pundi XWallet offers support for Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Binance Coin (BNB), Kucoin Shares (KCS), NEM (XEM), KNC, Qtum (QTUM), and Pundi X native tokens (NPXS and NPXSXEM).
Through this partnership, users can now transfer cryptocurrencies from Samsungs’s Blockchain Wallet into the XWallet, as well as use the PundiX NFC-enabled crypto card and blockchain POS device currently available in 25 countries.
Samsung had introduced the flagship Galaxy S10 with crypto features in February this year, and subsequently plans a roll out of the crypto functionality to other low cost Galaxy Smartphones.
For Pundi X, this marks a milestone as the company leverages on the popularity and coverage of Samsung’s global user base. It will also be recalled that Pundi X had launched Africa’s first blockchain Smartphone (XPhone) last week.
