The Tron (TRX) cryptocurrency seems to be extending its ecosystem partnership with Samsung Blockchain as a new section that will feature some blockchain games on its mobile devices. From the news, we can see that the Tron dApps finally arrived and are available in Samsung’s Galaxy App Store.
The Tron project announced on April 27 that the apps built on its blockchain will be featured in the Samsung Galaxy Store. This way, owners of the Samsung smartphones in specific countries will see the Tron dApps in an alternative app store.
Meanwhile, the Tron news show that the TRX tokens were already supported by Samsung’s Blockchain Keystore, which stores private keys in a secure memory compartment. The integration was announced alongside Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
As indicated by Tron before, the Samsung store will feature “applications like Blockchain Cuties, Super Player, Meerkat Mining and Timeloop.” It is also worth noting that the Blockchain Cuties game (a multi-platform game) reports having more users on Ethereum, even though it sees more transactions on Tron. Super Player also appears to be an Ethereum-only project for now, according to the site dAppRadar.com.
We can see that the remaining two apps are not present on any dApp aggregation platform. Even though this is not an exhaustive list, it is still unclear what criteria will be followed when including dApps.
For those of you who don’t know or don’t follow our blockchain news, the Samsung Galaxy Store itself is an alternative app store for Samsung devices. Aside from the general Android apps found on Google Play Store, it features many custom-tailored apps for the Korean company and its devices.
The Tron dApps will be available on the Samsung devices in the United States, Canada, South Korea, Australia, the Philippines, Singapore as well as “some countries in Europe.” It appears that the availability is not universal in those markets, while Tron disclaims that it “varies by carrier, market and service.”
Meanwhile, the TRX news now show that the cryptocurrency just shot up as result of the news and is now trading at $0.0146 with a 1.34% increase on the day. The market’s best performer so far is Stellar (XLM) which shot up by 11%.
