HTC is making a blockchain friendly phone called the 'Exodus'

HTC is creating an Android phone that's powered by blockchain HTC Exodus to Be 'World's First Native Blockchain Phone'
Sandy Mccarthy | 16 May, 2018, 07:42

As of right now, we do know the device will include a universal wallet and built-in hardware to support cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications. What this means is that all of you cryptotraders will have no problems managing your "money" and accessing it via all sorts of avenues. The idea is to develop a blockchain network with Exodus phones as nodes to drive trading of digital currencies among the users of HTC phones.

Overseeing the project is Phil Chen, best known as the founder of HTC's Vive virtual reality headset business.

Through Exodus, we are excited to be supporting underlying protocols such as Bitcoin, Lightning Networks, Ethereum, Dfinity, and more.

He added, "We would like to support the entire blockchain ecosystem, and in the next few months, we'll be announcing many more exciting partnerships together".

There's no doubt that HTC's trying something different compared to most other Android OEMs with Exodus, but I'm not sure this is the product that'll revitalize the company's mobile business.

Judge: Mueller can prosecute Manafort
Tuesday's opinion by Jackson was issued days after both sides argued a similar set of issues to dismiss charges before U.S. His lawyers filed for a dismissal on the basis that the charges extended beyond the scope of Mueller's appointment.

HTC's newest phone, the HTC Exodus, is one you'll probably never see vying for shelf space alongside the Galaxy S9, LG G7 or iPhone X.

We've already seen a couple of early adopters: the Sugar S11 Blockchain Creation Edition in January, and the Sirin Finney earlier this month. Chen's new title is going to be "decentralized chief officer". It costs $1,000 and enables the use and storage of cryptocurrencies without incurring transaction fees.

Pricing, availability details, and most importantly specs were not announced. Chen is expected to be speaking at the New York City Blockchain conference today, on these changes. In fact, i'll bet that these phones which double as a cryptocurrency wallet will become a prime target for attacks, and hope HTC is aware of this when developing it.

The device will also feature what's supposed to be a trusted and user-friendly UI for DApps.
