Moreover, a blockchain-based social media app Cosmee is to be the first DApp featured by Samsung. According to Howon Song, CEO of the blockchain-based beauty platform Cosmochain that launched Cosmee, “Since last year, the blockchain team of Samsung Electronics Wireless Division has been searching for DApps that have been commercialized. As a result, Cosmochain has been selected as a partner of Galaxy S10. We did dozens of meetings to verify the model and technology.”

Enjin, on the other hand, is a crypto project aimed at the gaming community, and the token's price has spiked following the announcement.
