South Korean technology conglomerate Samsung has integrated Tron support to its decentralized app store, Blockchain Keystore.
According to a release note published on Oct. 29 to the Samsung Developers website, Samsung Blockchain Keystore SDK v1.2.0 now includes APIs that support TRX transactions.
Samsung has revealed that today they are announcing its Samsung Blockchain Platform SDK at the Samsung Developer Conference 2019. The new SDK will reportedly tackle the two-fold challenge of bolstering security and building mobile-compatible DApps.
As commentators have been swift to claim, the new Tron integration means that APIs for all tokens conforming to the TRC10 or 20 standards as well as Tron-based DApps are poised to become accessible to anyone with the Blockchain Keystore among Samsung’s near 1 bn global smartphone user base.
Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron which positions itself as a competitor to Ethereum by coupling decentralized finance with a wider decentralized internet ecosystem had this week attempted to fuel hype by hinting at an undisclosed partnership with an allegedly “hundred billion USD megacorporation.”
As of August 2019, Samsung reportedly has a market value of $272.4 bn, according to Statista.
Sun had also claimed the partnership would “broadly distribute TRON Dapps and tokens to billions of customers.”
