Samsung is set to announce at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019 (SDC19) a comprehensive solution system that aims to help developers build mobile-compatible decentralized applications (DApp).
Integrating blockchain technology
Samsung seems to have understood the benefits that decentralization and transparency can bring into a wide range of industries, including finance, real state, and medicine. This could be the main reason why the company has been capitalizing on the potential of blockchain technology by building different services that tackle some of the biggest obstacles in the industry.
At the beginning of the year, the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world by market share launched the Samsung Blockchain Wallet App as well as its first crypto-friendly smartphone, the Galaxy S10. The former allowed users to transact in cryptocurrencies while the latter provided a secure storage system for private keys through the Samsung Blockchain Keystore. For the first time, users were able to treat their phones like clod wallets having the additional protection of Samsung Knox and TEE.
Now, the South Korean-based company wants to expand its blockchain services further. Samsung is planning to allow developers to build blockchain-based applications for mobile devices with the Samsung Blockchain Platform SDK.
Samsung Blockchain Platform SDK
One of the most significant issues facing the industry today is that most of the top DApps are web-based and can only be accessed through a desktop or laptop. With SDK, Samsung wants to tackle complexity and security issues making it easier for developers to create mobile-compatible DApps. Additionally, this platform will allow legacy apps to incorporate blockchain features to put them at the forefront of innovation.
The Samsung Blockchain Platform SDK is by far the most significant step taken by the company to push blockchain technology further. With developers seamlessly creating DApps that can be accessed through mobile devices, the doors are now open for the mass adoption of blockchain technology. Users will soon have the availability to make transactions with cryptocurrencies and access their favorite DApps from the palm of their hands.
