Samsung Eyes Bespoke Crypto

There is no doubt that Samsung is another big-name company across the world. Interestingly, it is strongly considering the idea of issuing its own crypto. This is not something new in the crypto space, as similar stories have emerged from the likes of JPMorgan Chase and Facebook.

Although nothing has been set in stone yet, a so-called “Samsung Coin” might just find a use as a a payment means on the tech giant’s app store. Even more so, it can be traded on all digital currency exchanges. It is worth noting that the company has unveiled its flagship Galaxy S10 smartphone, which will reportedly arrive with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet.
