HTC to make blockchain-powered phone called the Exodus
MANILA, Philippines – HTC is joining the blockchain future with a new phone powered by blockchain tech.
The phone, revealed by The Next Web, is called Exodus. The report explains the phone will have a universal wallet and a built-in secure hardware enclave to support cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications.
Phil Chen, the founder of the HTC Vive VR headset, will be leading the charge to build Exodus.
Chen said, “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.”
HTC, however, isn't the first to come out with a Blockchain-powered phone. Sirin Labs is coming out with a $1,000 blockchain-powered phone in October called the Finney.
There is no release date or price details for the Exodus at the moment. However, there is currently a "reserve now" option on official site, htcexodus.com.– Rappler.com
