Leaked Photographs Show Samsung Galaxy S10 Equipped with Cryptocurrency Wallet

The S10 is shown to be geared with a hole-punch display and a cryptocurrency cold wallet. Leaked photos of the smartphone appeared on Twitter on the 23rd of January

Speculation on the Galaxy S10 arose last year around November when Samsung moved for a European trademark for Blockchain Key Box, Blockchain KeyStore, and Blockchain Core. Now the rumors appear to be bona fide with leaked images as evidence showing the unreleased smartphone processing a cold wallet and a hole-punch display.

The cold wallet is apparently called the Samsung Blockchain KeyStore where users can ‘secure and manage’ their own ‘blockchain private key’.

The Galaxy S10 will launch next month, in February.

SamMobile got a hold of the images which was then posted by Twitter user Ben Geskin.

The Galaxy S10: What We Know So Far

BGR tells the new smartphone will have a cold storage wallet and a secondary wallet with a capability to import wallets from other providers. The wallet can hold BTC, ETH, and BCH. Based on the leaked images, ETH support is verified.

For the security of the wallet, Samsung will not have access to the user’s cold wallet data. Recovering the wallet will require a 12 to 24-word phrase ensuring public and private keys are safely stored

The S10 is also said to feature a Bitcoin app where authentication is required by means of a PIN or a fingerprint to access the cold wallet.

During last year’s third quarter, smartphone manufacturer HTC launched Exodus, a blockchain smartphone with built-in cold wallet and Lightning Network support.

Harbor Tokenizes $100 Million in Real Estate Funds on ETH

One of the leading tokenization platforms, Harbor announced this week that they successfully tokenized $100 million in real estate funds. The firm tokenized four major funds with the goal to increase liquidity for investors. The move showcases growing interest by investors towards tokenized real estate. As part of the tokenization, Harbor provides investors with access to their inclusive platform. Here, investors can trade their securities in full compliance with the SEC. Speaking on the decision, Harbor’s CEO, Josh Stein described the maneuver as the natural evolution. The tokenized real estate fund includes a mash-up of 17 broker-dealers, a myriad of placement agents, and approximately 1,100 private investors. Importantly, iCAP Equity is the fund’s manager. Harbor Tokenizes $100 Million in Real Estate Funds via Twitter iCAP’s CEO, Chris Christenson spoke on the decision in detail in a recent interview. Here he explained why it was important to create the best investment experience possible for his clients. In his words, the best way to accomplish this monumental task was “providing liquidity for them.” Harbor Tokenizes Funds on Ethereum Blockchain Harbor chose Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard for the tokenization of the funds. Traditionally, Harbor would use its native R-token standard but developers decided that due to the passive nature of the investment, ERC-20 tokens were better suited for the task. More than Issuance Stein envisions Harbor as more than just an issuance platform. Now, the company seeks to provide businesses with a solid tokenization infrastructure. In this manner, companies can tokenize their existing assets. Stein explained that the demand for newly issued tokens was far less than previously expected. Interestingly, Harbor noticed that most STO investors were of the speculative nature versus true investments. Tokenizing Existing Assets Notably, Harbor discovered that tokenizing assets that already have value were much easier to market. For one, they are more geared towards the traditional investment community. Harbor Tokenizes Shares to Add Liquidity to the Market Traditionally, securities investors agree upon a multi-year lockup. Basically, you can’t sell your shares until an agreed-upon date. The problem here is that in many instances, investors need to access those funds for certain reasons prior to the agreed-upon date. In the traditional system, an investor would have to wait out the years until granted sales access or find an investor willing to take over the waiting period. Harbor’s platform does away with this nonsense and allows investors to trade their tokenized shares as soon as the SEC mandatory one year lockup period ends. Experience Equals Lessons Like any true pioneer, hard lessons were part of the learning process. Last year, Harbor attempted to issue tokenized shares in an apartment building. While the concept was solid, discrepancies arose between the mortgage lender. In the end, the deal was scrapped before launch. Harbor Tokenizes the World Harbor appears to have the flexibility and forward-thinking needed to adjust to the ever-changing crypto landscape. You can expect to see more major players in the tokenization sector begin to duplicate this strategy in the coming months. For now, Harbor appears to be a step ahead of the curve.

Ethereum Price Has Been Booming Since Friday

At press time, Ethereum – the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap and the number one competitor to bitcoin – has been exploding in price and is expected to shoot past $200 within the next few days. Ethereum Is Growing Suddenly Ethereum has been experiencing great difficulty as of late and is entering “bitcoin status” in that it is now an “old” coin when compared to competitors like EOS and TRON. Even that is something of an understatement considering BTC has experienced solid growth this year, first reaching $5,000 in April and doubling its price since then. Ethereum, by comparison, has been meandering through the high $100 range for most of 2019 and has experienced fewer spikes than bitcoin and even other altcoins. However, it has since managed to turn around some of this reverse luck and shift itself into a “growth period,” having spiked by more than seven percent since last Friday alone. At the time of writing, the coin is trading for about $194 per unit and has a market cap of nearly $21 billion. Many analysts are predicting that this sudden rally could also be good for bitcoin, as well as the rest of the crypto market. When one major coin does well, the rest seem to follow suit. The sudden jump in price is being attributed to the Ethereal Conference which took place last week in Tel Aviv, Israel. Co-founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin commented that the coin is experiencing “strong progress in privacy” and decentralized finance. In addition, the token is planning to move to an eventual proof of stake algorithm known as Ethereum 2.0 in the coming months. This is interesting considering Buterin’s recent comments regarding Ethereum’s scalability, which he says is floundering as of late. The blockchain entrepreneur commented that while Ethereum’s smart contracts capabilities have made it one of the most popular blockchain networks to build new coins and applications on, the amount of ventures and customers its drawn has hurt it in the long run. Ethereum is now a very saturated network, and as a result, Buterin comments that it’s “no longer scalable.”  We Can Still Be at the Top In an interview with a Canadian news outlet, he commented:  Scalability is a big bottleneck because the Ethereum blockchain is almost full. If you’re a bigger organization, the calculus is that if we join, it will not only be extremely full, but we will be competing with everyone [else] for transaction space… There is pressure keeping people from joining, but improvements in scalability can do a lot in improving that. He further stated that while the company is beginning to experience increased competition from blockchain networks like TRON, he’s confident the shift to 2.0 will place Ethereum back in the number one spot and keep it a prime network for decentralized applications.
