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

The phone is named HTC Exodus and it is described by the company as the "world's first native blockchain phone". A new report published today revealed that HTC is also building a Android powered blockchain phone called the HTC Exodus.

Schematics of the phone shows it has a single camera, support for storage expansion, and nano-SIM support. Spearheading the Exodus initiative is Phil Chen, the founder of HTC Vive.

Conte urges lacklustre Chelsea to improve for FA Cup final
We are very lucky the game was somewhat irrelevant in the end as Liverpool won (to confirm fourth). Not speculation around me. 'We have six days to change our approach and desire and will to fight.

"Through the Exodus, we are also excited to be supporting underlying protocols such as Bitcoin, Lightning Networks, Ethereum, Dfinity, and more", Chen wrote in a blog post accompanying the announcement.

This is all hot on the heels of Sirin Labs' Huawei-backed blockchain phone "Finney".

Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners suspended 80 games for drug violation

Other Chinese phone manufacturers have announced the development of similar blockchain powered devices soon to be available including Sugar which claims to be developing a phone that can mine Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The interesting part about this new device is the fact that the company claims that it wants to reshape the internet with Exodus by decentralizing the internet. Blockchain and cryptocurrency are becoming big topics these days, with many anxious that the traditional currencies might be worthless in a few years. 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. You will be able to buy Exodus using cryptocurrency as well, but no pricing or ETA has been released just yet.
