HTC’s blockchain-powered smartphone Exodus is real, and coming this fall

14 July, 2018, 05:01 | Author: Sammy Rose

After announcing a fall in sales of nearly 70% last week, HTC has taken the surprising step of announcing that it will launch a blockchain-powered smartphone called the Exodus in Q3 of 2018.

"Exodus is described by its makers as 'the world's first phone dedicated to decentralised applications and security".

According to the latest data, announced in may, HTC Exodus will be released this fall, and, in fact, is a kind of "cold wallet" for cryptocurrency - miners knew immediately what it meant. There still aren't any real details about the specifications of the Exodus, and indeed, the website looks mostly the same as it did when the phone was first announced back in May.

Following earlier reports, struggling smartphone manufacturer, HTC, has revealed its revolutionary blockchain powered smartphone will launch later this year. He later added that there is already "famous" experts looking into a variety of different consensus protocols that might make Exodus mobile mining a reality. "The partnership with CryptoKitties is the beginning of a non-fungible, collectible marketplace and crypto gaming app store".

But on Tuesday, the company gave us just a tiny bit more info about the Exodus phone, including something that resembles a launch date.

HTC confirmed in May this year that it was developing a blockchain smartphone.

While the end goal is to create a truly decentralized phone where you own all of your identity and all of your data, Chen says such a device is still a ways off. "It is exciting to be the first to offer the opportunity to decentralize the Internet and reshape it in favor of the contemporary user ". However, HTC's Phil Chen, who is the Chief Crypto Officer, has told The Verge that the Exodus would be available "everywhere outside of China".

Prior to the launch, the company is partnering with the popular blockchain title, CryptoKitties.

The partnership with CryptoKitties will see the game "available on a small selection of the company's handsets starting with the U12+".

On your smartphone, you can collect and display cryptococal as on the computer.
