Samsung is reportedly developing a cryptocurrency wallet app

Samsung is developing a cryptocurrency wallet app that may launch with its, currently unreleased, Galaxy S10 device, according to news site SamMobile. Samsung's app will have two parts: 1) a cold wallet for storing cryptocurrency and private keys and 2) a hot wallet for crypto transactions. Names for the app have not been finalized. Furthermore, SamMobile reports that Samsung's app will enable users to import existing wallets from other services like Metamask and TrustWallet. The wallet would initially support bitcoin, ether, bitcoin cash, and other ERC-20 tokens. (Source: SamMobile)
