Samsung, the South Korean electronics giant has released a beta version of Ethereum Blockchain-based Software Development Kit (SDK) for partner developers.
This kit enables the developers and consumers a full set of functions that are required to build decentralized apps (dapps). It will be available in Canada, South Korea, and the USA. Currently, the kit will support only five devices- Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G, and the Galaxy Fold.
The SDK provides developers with ways to manage user accounts, authorize digital signatures for transactions, and manipulate transaction data. It will further allow linking users to any cold wallets, and not just Samsung KeyStore. Additionally, the beta edition SDK will facilitate the creation of transactions and the result of the transfer will be sent to a blockchain node.
Samsung will leverage its partners with additional features available in the kit to have access to a “blockchain specialized browser” for web dApps, which will have features to facilitate easier crypto payments and tools for easily estimating fees using live crypto exchange rates. Partners will be able to fetch transaction history from Samsung’s “blockchain proxy node.” These features will help reduce the cost of building dApps on supported mobile devices, said Samsung.
Galaxy S10, which was launched earlier this year, supports several dapps as well as features a Samsung crypto wallet supporting ether and ERC20 tokens. The giant was also planning to bring blockchain solutions to more budget-friendly Galaxy models.
According to recent news, Samsung is creating its own Ethereum-based blockchain network and may be planning to issue its own token too.
