Smartphone Company HTC is Working on a Blockchain Phone

A couple of months ahead of its latest flagship launch, Taiwan-based HTC just unveiled another piece of hardware. While the company has consolidated much of its mobile offerings, it declared today at the Consensus 2018 blockchain conference in New York that its forthcoming Exodus handset is adopting everyone’s favourite tech buzzword.

So what makes a phone blockchain phone, mainly? Safety and digital currency support, primarily. As per HTC’s Exodus landing page, “Our vision is to expand the blockchain ecosystem by creating the world’s first phone committed to decentralized apps and security. With the launch of the HTC Exodus, we can now make this a reality.”

The Exodus phone will support Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), amidst others, courtesy of a universal wallet, secure hardware, and decentralized application. As per the Next Web, HTC has further outlined a plans to build a native blockchain network, whereby digital currency can be traded among Exodus clients. Normally, clients will likewise be able to buy the phone using digital currency. That price and launch date of the phone is yet to be revealed.

Honestly, there’s not a ton of information past that and the above design, however, HTC is apparently gunning to make a splash as its numbers have contracted in overall proportion to a declining smartphone market. Indeed with fast increasing knowledge and interest in the digital currency space, still, it’s difficult to believe Exodus is making much of a splash.
