The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF), a non-profit organization that supports the development and growth of the Stellar network, today announced the integration of Stellar into the Samsung Blockchain Keystore. This integration empowers Stellar end users to securely store private keys on select Samsung Galaxy smartphones1. Stellar’s blockchain services are available through the Samsung Blockchain Keystore, allowing Stellar ecosystem developers to create blockchain apps and services for Samsung Galaxy Smartphones, in addition to existing Stellar-based products and applications.
SDF will collaborate with Samsung to expand and improve the blockchain ecosystem experience for consumers by working with developers who have built on the Stellar network and incorporated the appropriate SDKs into their applications to utilize the Samsung Blockchain Keystore and the integration in their applications. Together, they will partner in an ongoing effort to recruit, on-board, and support developers in the Stellar ecosystem.
“Stellar’s integration into the Samsung Blockchain Keystore is a significant step for our network and the incredible ecosystem of applications built on this platform. Samsung provides a key management solution that is user-friendly and drives greater adoption of blockchain technology. With this integration, we’ve opened up to a new network of users that can benefit from the combined innovation of Stellar and Samsung,” said Denelle Dixon, CEO and Executive Director of SDF. “It’s just the beginning as we work together to empower more developers and users to leverage blockchain and the capabilities presented by this integration.”
At the time of announcement, at least four Stellar-based businesses have committed to adopting the requisite SDKs to make their applications available in the Keystore, including DSTOQ, SatoshiPay, Litemint, and Nodle.
