Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer OnePlus could soon launch its own crypto wallet, as the Chinese company is found to be conducting a survey on blockchain research. The company is currently conducting a survey seeking user feedback on blockchain technology.

In its survey, the company is asking users whether they have used trading platforms such as Coinbase, Gemini, Robinhood, and Binance. It seems to be a hint at OnePlus venturing into the cryptocurrency platform/ wallet space. Bitcoin and other digital currencies such as Ethereum and Dogecoin have become quite popular among young smartphone users, especially because of the easy access to cryptocurrency trading apps.

Initially reported by MySmartPrice, the survey titled OnePlus Blockchain Research suggests the company's interest in building a product around cryptocurrency. OnePlus is seeking information on whether the respondents have used any "software hot wallets" such as the Coinbase Wallet or MetaMask.

The survey does indicate that the company is working on its crypto wallet and related apps. There is no official word on the release of this wallet however.

Notably, OnePlus rival smartphone maker Samsung already offering its Blockchain Wallet to provide support for the popular coins including Bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies on its Galaxy smartphones since the launch of the Galaxy S10 in February 2019.

Recently, Apple Inc. was also found to have interest in entering the cryptocurrency market. The company posted a job opening for a business development manager with experience in the cryptocurrency industry. It could be to natively start supporting Bitcoin transactions through Apple devices.
