Enjin (ENJ), Cosmo Coin (COSM), ICON (ICX) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) all surged in Monday trading after images circulated suggesting the Samsung Galaxy S10 will come with built-in support for the Enjin Wallet.
First spotted by Asia Crypto Today, the promotional image on tworld.co.kr shows the “Samsung Blockchain Keystore,” which looks to be an implementation of Enjin’s wallet and notably includes Ethereum (ETH) and Basic Attention Token.

The speculation gained credence during the Samsung Mobile Business Summit on Monday where support for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum, Enjin and Cosmee — a Cosmo Coin beauty dapp — were visible. The presentation also mentions an ID system that utilizes ICON’s ChainID.
Samsung’s support has been a major catalyst for the tokens involved, with Enjin Coin surging over 200% at one point on Monday. Here’s the current price outlook following the news:
- Enjin Coin (ENJ) — $0.090633 (+102.5%)
- Cosmo Coin (COSM) — $ 0.024417 (+70.8%)
- Basic Attention Token (BAT) — $0.167719 (+29%)
- ICON (ICX) — $0.276486 (+15.5%)
The choice to partner with Enjin likely stems from the project’s focus on NFTs and virtual items, as the S10 undoubtedly hopes to spark interest among mobile gamers. According to Samsung’s website, the S10 is “optimized” for gaming and features a vapor chamber cooling system.
