HTC Exodus to Be 'World's First Native Blockchain Phone'

HTC is creating an Android phone that's powered by blockchain

The HTC Exodus comes amidst the Google acquihire of two thousands employees, while the company's primary lead is now in virtual reality with the Vive. Security and cryptocurrency support, mostly.

It's not surprising to see Chen moving over to be in charge of this new technology, seeing as Facebook and Instagram have both moved some executives over to be in charge of its own cryptocurrency (though it is not yet available).

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.

HTC Exodus will feature a universal wallet and a built-in secure hardware to support cryptocurrencies and decentralised applications (DApps), which are software programs that run on a peer-to-peer network and are designed in such a way that they are not controlled by a single entity. For more information about the Exodus, you can register/reserve an one with your name and email at the landing page for the phone. According to The Next Web, HTC has also outlined plans to create a native blockchain network, whereby cryptocurrency can be traded amongst Exodus users. Either way, add HTC to the list of companies interested in finding profit from the subject with it's new Exodus, ostensibly a decentralized, blockchain and buzzword-packed marketing experience that may also be a phone.

There is no release date or price details for the Exodus at the moment. Samsung last month was reported to be building blockchain network, but for its own global supply management. Huawei has hopped on to blockchain bandwagon by hosting a bitcoin wallet on its phones. The company has also included a few advanced security features and claims the phone is virtually "tamper proof". Sirin Labs announced a $999 Dollars blockchain phone previous year, a device reportedly being made by Foxconn.
