Samsung adds crypto wallet to its new flagship Galaxy S10

Samsung just made major announcement that might give a strong boost to the cryptocurrency mass adoption. The company confirmed that its new flagship smartphone Galaxy S10 features "a secure storage backed by hardware, which houses your private keys for blockchain-enabled mobile services." In my opinion the price is still too high. Will this feature make you buy this model for such a price? Is it useful to have this on your phone and how safe is it? What do you think about this technology?

Crypto currency is what it is. Only those that want to play in that get excited and you don't want the phone maker supplying this as the makers are doing this on a budget and have no real intention of making the security air tight. You don't need me to bash this. Google it.

It's clear. But perhaps this will give some people an impetus to buy this phone or start buying a cryptocurrency.

The debate on that faux currency is done.

In reply to: But

Let's let the cryptocurrency folk talk it up but it has yet to show value or stability. That is, a cup of coffee appears to be a stable currency.

Beyond that, Samsung apps have been noted to be all over the map on quality. With the company not reacting to bug reports or missing features. I won't do the digging for everyone so my advice is to ignore this and use your choice of wallets.

Yes, you are absolutely right.
