The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) has announced that it has added its blockchain ecosystem into Samsung Blockchain Keystore, as this integration aims to provide a solution for Stellar end-users to store private keys on selected Galaxy smartphones.
On July 15, 2020, it has been reported that developers from the Stellar ecosystem will be able to create blockchain-related apps and services for Samsung Galaxy smartphone owners.
At the time of the 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.

Stellar is a decentralized, fast, scalable, and uniquely sustainable network for financial products and services. It is both a cross-currency transaction system and a platform for digital asset issuance, designed to connect the world’s financial infrastructure.
The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) is a non-profit organization that supports the development and growth of Stellar, an open-source network that connects the world’s financial infrastructure. In May, the SDF invested a further $550,000, paid in XLM, in Berlin-based instant payment platform SatoshiPay.
