Samsung makes crypto wallet move in UK

Cue lots of 'mass adoption of crypto, here we come!' talk on social media

Samsung has applied for a cryptocurrency wallet trademark in the UK, according to a filing with the UK Intellectual Property Office.

In the Classes and terms section of the application, the South Korean electronics giant mentions the likes of “Computer software for use as a cryptocurrency wallet; Computer software for cryptocurrency transfer and payment using blockchain technology; Computer application software for smartphones, namely, software to allow users to transfer cryptocurrency based on blockchain technology and pay via 3rd party’s application software”.

Earlier this month, Samsung, which recently filed three EU trademarks for blockchain and cryptocurrency software, denied rumours that it was prepping a cryptocurrency cold wallet on its Galaxy S10 smartphone.
