Now the Enjin wallet and S10 partnership have also been confirmed, after images surfaced of Samsung’s Blockchain Keystore surfaced showing Enjin and their ability to access the Blockchain element for Knox grade security. Enjin is the only wallet that can directly access the back end blockchain element that is built on Knox.
Previously Asia Crypto Today exclusively revealed the rumor of a potential partnership, with Enjin being used for the sending and receiving of ERC-20 tokens and ERC-1155 crypto game assets after gaining information from sources and Enjin’s interface appeared on the screen introducing the key money store ‘key store’ in the spot where Samsung Electronics unveiled the Galaxy S10 for the first time last month.
We have a full Enjin Coin Guide describing the Enjin Ecosystem and how the S10 Wallet works with Enj.
There was also another piece of interesting news surrounding the S10 that was revealed late last night following the initial publication of the article. Samsung replied to a tweet from an Australian user who had asked if the S10 Crypto wallet would be available in his country. Samsung replied with a negative claiming it is only available in the US, Canada, and Korea at this present moment.
The partnership with Samsung for the gaming feature clearly makes sense. Enjin is one of the industry leaders in terms of blockchain based gaming. The Enjin team created the ERC-1155 asset class on the Ethereum blockchain, a token class used for in-game goods and digital item ownership. The ERC 1155 and ERC 721 have also taken the world by storm last year, introducing the world to non-fungible tokens such as crypto kitties.
Enjin, the Singaporean based company started the Enjin platform early support program from last August to January this year. It is a program that supports technology and marketing for new blockchain game and service development. More than 1000 projects were supported by this program, and Enjin Coin selected 40 of these projects to take on the platform, some of which will no doubt be on the S10.
Just this week both Unity and Enjin decided to introduce millions of game developers to blockchain development through their project, Unity SDK. Enjin is a leader in blockchain gaming, while Unity is one of the most popular game development platforms. Samsung had announced a partnership with Unity to make games run faster on the S10 and seeing as Enjin have similar links to the company, it would not be surprising if this partnership was a natural extension.
Speaking on the Unity partnership, Maxim Blagov, CEO of Enjin said:
“Unity SDK integration is designed to make it easier to focus on creating games…. Unity developers can create ERC-1155 assets on a user friendly UI with a few clicks without the need to code extensive libraries.”Maxim Blagov
The Samsung S10 is certainly a great potential tool for the blockchain space with its mass appeal and potentially millions of customers that will have not only a wallet but other blockchain based commodities at their fingertips. Enjin
