South Korean electronics giant Samsung has quietly added support for bitcoin and Klaytn (KLAY) to its online decentralized app (DApp) store, Blockchain Keystore, Cointelegraph reported.

Unveiled earlier this year, the Blockchain Keystore feature enables users to manage their blockchain private keys. It is currently supported by six Samsung devices— Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G, Note10 and Note10+ — and across six jurisdictions: Canada, Germany, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United States and the United Kingdom.

“With Samsung Blockchain Keystore preloaded on select Galaxy devices, users can now easily create a key storage in the Secure File system for Blockchain transactions. Users can run Samsung Blockchain Keystore to check the 12 Mnemonic Words that correspond to the Master Seed that is used to derive both public and private keys,” Samsung said.

“When using a decentralized app (DApp) or cryptocurrency wallet that have integrated Samsung Blockchain Keystore SDK, users will be able to confirm their transactions on a secure screen and sign the transaction with a private key.”

Initially, the Keystore supported only the Ethereum blockchain. The updated information on the company’s developers website states that the Keystore has added support for Bitcoin and Klaytn (KLAY), the cryptocurrency issued by South Korean messaging giant Kakao’s blockchain platform.

Earlier this month, Samsung announced that it was adding 13 new apps to the Keystore, which would bring the total number of apps on the app store to 17.
