Tech giant Samsung has unveiled three models of its blockchain-enabled flagship smartphone – the Galaxy Note 10; with this latest version allowing users to store cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin on their phones.
The specifically designed crypto smartphone is named the KlatynPhone, and features the same hardware specifications and pricing as the traditional standalone Galaxy Note 10 devices. However, this variant will support blockchain apps and a cryptocurrency wallet.
Samsung is reported to have partnered Ground X – a subsidiary of Asian messaging company KaKao to build the Klatyn blockchain network for cryptocurrency transactions.
