Samsung Looking for Trademark for Cryptocurrency wallet

As per the information stated by the UK Intellectual Property Office, Samsung which is based out of South Korea and is popularly known for its high-quality electronics products is looking for a trademark in the United Kingdom for a cryptocurrency wallet.

Samsung had filed for three European Union trademark applications for blockchain and cryptocurrency interlinked software on the 10th December.

Earlier in October, a new production process for the 7-nanometer (nm) Low Power Plus (7LPP) process was launched by Samsung Foundry which is the production wing of Samsung. This new process has the ability to cut down its energy consumption by around 50 percent. The chip may supposedly also have a positive impact for every crypto miner using Samsung’s hardware, as energy costs are the crucial factor in driving the profit in the field of the crypto mining industry.

At the beginning of this month, it was reported that one of the leading smartphone manufacturers, HTC, has incorporated the decentralized browser named ‘Brave’ on the HTC Exodus 1 phone, “the first native blockchain phone” that supports a number of blockchains such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) networks, to name a few.
