Enjin co-founder and CTO Witek Radomski confirmed in a recent interview with Coin Rivet that the latest Samsung smartphones support the ERC-1155 standard.
Earlier this year, the crypto world was set abuzz with hype surrounding the announcement of a partnership between Enjin and Samsung. However, little to no details have surfaced since, leaving many to speculate on what the partnership entails.
Coin Rivet recently sat down to speak with Enjin co-founder and CTO Witek Radomski, who told us: “We’ve been working with Samsung for a good while now, and if you have the Samsung S10, you’ll notice that there’s keystore support for the Samsung Keystore.”
He continued: “This actually means that your mobile phone is like a hardware wallet. There’s actual hardware in the phone that will store your private keys securely.
“One feature I haven’t talked too much about is that it actually supports the ERC-1155 standard directly. So, anyone developing on Samsung phones can actually directly use the API to access ERC-1155 items.”
The ERC-1155 standard is increasingly popular in blockchain gaming and beyond, with many companies paying attention to its powerful use cases.
Witek is the author of the ERC-1155 standard, and as such, direct support from a smartphone giant like Samsung is “really exciting for me because, you know, it’s really showing that this standard is getting adopted”.
The South Korean tech company has been showing more and more interest in the crypto and blockchain space recently, with Samsung NEXT – which invests in transformative early-stage software and services start-ups – choosing to invest in Theta Labs, who alongside Sliver.tv is aiming to bring about an era of tokenised bandwidth sharing.
