Samsung has confirmed information about plans to integrate cryptocurrency wallets in the budget models of their smartphones.

“We will gradually integrate support for blockchain functions into an increasing number of Galaxy models,” one of the top management representatives said. “We will also increase the number of countries supported.”

In addition, the company plans to launch a mobile identification card with the support of two local telecom operators: SK Telecom and Korean Telecom.

“We are working on the technology of identification and support of local currencies on the blockchain, cooperating with telecom operators,” a company representative also said.

In April, it became known that the South Korean company was allegedly working on its own cryptocurrency based on Ethereum.
