Electronics giant Samsung filed for a patent in 2019 titled, “Programmable Blockchain Solid State Drive and Switch.” In other words, Samsung registered a patent for a programmable blockchain SSD. This programmable data storage device stores at least a block of a blockchain corresponding to the blockchain algorithm in its nonvolatile memory through the storage controller.

When executed, the processor sends and receives one or more blocks of the blockchain via the network interface. Additionally, the processor controls the programmable gate array to execute the blockchain algorithm on one or more blocks of the blockchain. Efficiency is said to increase by using a blockchain based SSD. Theoretically, Samsung possesses the influence and resources to lobby governments and even change the public perception around crypto.
