South Korean electronics giant Samsung has released a beta version of ethereum blockchain-based software development kit (SDK) for partner developers.

The kit provides “a full set” of functions that are required to build decentralized apps (dapps), the company said, adding that it also offers a payment gateway for cryptocurrency remittance with its user interface.

“Samsung Blockchain SDK is available to communicate with external blockchain node providing payment solution. It can reduce costs to build your dapp except in case if you have your own wallet logics already,” Samsung explained.

The kit currently only supports five devices: Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G and the Galaxy Fold. The official version of the kit is expected to be released by the end of this year.

Galaxy S10 was launched earlier this year, which supports several dapps as well as features a Samsung crypto wallet supporting ether and ERC20 tokens. The giant was also planning to bring blockchain solutions to more budget-friendly Galaxy models.

Recently, there were also reports that Samsung is creating its own Ethereum-based blockchain network and may be planning to issue its own token too.
