In addition to the Samsung Blockchain Keystore, Galaxy smartphones can now connect to third-party hardware wallets, including the Ledger Nano S and Ledger Nano X, to make it easier for blockchain users to manage and trade virtual assets, the company announced on Thursday.

Samsung users can now access and process transactions by importing virtual assets stored on select cold hardware wallets to the Samsung Blockchain Wallet app available on Galaxy smartphones running Android OS 9.0 or above.

“Support for hardware wallets provides Galaxy blockchain with a consistent user experience of managing crypto assets from one convenient location,” Samsung said.

Samsung Blockchain Wallet can also keep up with the latest trends in cryptocurrency with a dedicated newsfeed in the app featuring articles from CoinDesk.

The Samsung Blockchain Wallet supports some of the most popular cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, ERC tokens, Tron and TRC tokens whilst allowing Galaxy users to explore decentralized apps (DApp) that use blockchain technology to authenticate the exchange of digital assets.

Samsung provides top-notch security for its users. While Samsung Blockchain keeps the private key in a single, secure location, Samsung’s defence-grade security platform ‘Knox’ and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) provide additional protection.
