The vice chairman of the South Korean consumer electronics company Samsung is apparently looking to collaborate with platforms on the development of blockchain technologies and 6G. The news that Samsung taps blockchain, AI and sixth generation mobile networks has gone viral on many best cryptocurrency news sites.
First reported by Bloomberg on June 16, Samsung’s plans come directly from the vice chairman of the company, Jay Y. Lee, who now serves as the firm’s de factor leader. Lee held discussions with executives – directly spreading the news that Samsung taps blockchain and other technologies, in a statement cited by Bloomberg.
This is also the first time that Lee discussed on the news that Samsung taps blockchain – as well as the news about 6G technology and its massive potential. Also, it is right on time when rivals of the company such as Apple Inc. and Huawei Technologies Co. race to commercialize a lot of services based on 5G networks, which are already launched in South Korea (from April this year).
The report also shows that a platform company is an initial acquisition by a private equity firm, all in order to make further acquisitions within a certain sector. As per Bloomberg and the latest cryptocurrency news, the movie to pursue such bleeding edge technologies comes after a rapidly changing business climate and a lot of structural changes in the technology industry. This, according to Lee, presents new challenges for major firms.
“We should challenge ourselves with a resolution to make new foundations, moving beyond the scope of protecting our past achievements,” Lee noted, confirming the news that Samsung taps blockchain.
As we reported last month in our altcoin news section, the budget smartphones by Samsung will start to include cryptocurrency and blockchain features. Meanwhile, crypto and blockchain functionalities have already been confirmed for the Samsung S10 phone and will be included in other Galaxy smartphone models, too.
At the end of April, one anonymous source also claimed that Samsung could eventually develop its own public-private blockchain which will be completed with its own token. This confirms the craze for blockchain technology and innovation that is currently spreading among Asian conglomerates.
