Samsung Electronics is developing its own blockchain, a person familiar with the matter told CoinDesk Korea. The electronics industry giant, which generated $221 billion in revenue in 2018, is also reportedly exploring a “Samsung Coin” cryptocurrency.

The development is being handled by Samsung Electronics’ blockchain team, which is part of the company’s wireless division. The source said Samsung’s blockchain will likely be a hybrid design with properties of both public and private blockchains.

For example, the company’s recently released Galaxy S10 flagship smartphone has the capability to securely store private keys used to access blockchain-based assets.

The token has managed to maintain a large portion of the gains from this rally, as ENJ is trading for $0.16 at the moment.
Other blockchain projects Samsung collaborated with include CryptoKitties, Cosmee and CoinDuck.
