After several setbacks, HTC is ready to get back in the smartphone game. Their latest innovation, the Exodus smartphone. The Exodus is “world’s first major blockchain phone”.
The Taiwanese firm revealed its vision for the future of smartphones at the Consensus 2018 CryptoCurrency conference in New York, explaining how it will utilise blockchain technology to support cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ethereum.
“Our vision is to expand the blockchain ecosystem by creating the world’s first phone dedicated to decentralized applications and security,” HTC states on a website dedicated to the new device.
“With the release of the HTC Exodus we can now make this a reality… we believe we can help reshape the internet.”
The phone will feature a CryptoCurrency wallet allowing users to make and accept CryptoCurrency payments to other devices. The Exodus promises to be “the first cold wallet phone with key recovery.” We’ve also heard talk of decentralized app boasting better security then standard apps. This time its about a decentralized internet and storing your data securely on the device instead of the cloud.
