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

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

HTC has announced a first of its kind native blockchain phone, called Exodus. Ultimately, HTC says that each Exodus will act as a node for the bitcoin and ethereum blockchains - so that every phone increases the overall size and scope of the network. If that doesn't get you Mr. Robot fanboys going, I don't know what will. Meanwhile, HTC Vive creator Phil Chen have been quoted as saying that the company may consider cryptocurrency as a means of payment for the upcoming multiple blockchain-powered phone.

The Exodus will support Bitcoin and Ethereum, among others, courtesy of a universal wallet, secure hardware and decentralized apps. The company said they'd like to eventually support the "entire blockchain ecosystem", and added that they'll announce new partnerships in the months to come.

HTC hasn't released any official images of what the Exodus will look like.

HTC is hoping to change all that, as it told The Next Web that it's developing a new Android phone that will be powered by blockchain. Moving forward, however, his new title will be "decentralized chief officer". HTC sees the Exodus as a handset that will let owners keep their data - and blockchain currencies - private and secure on the device rather than in the cloud, where your sensitive information may be easier to extract and tamper with. While the Exodus phone maintains a crypto-connection, its important to understand the basics of blockchain outside of cryptocurrencies to see how revolutionary this device could be. This would be the second Blockchain smartphone, behind Sirin Labs Finney smartphone that is priced at $1000.

In addition to cryptocurrency manipulation, blockchain is touted for its ability to offer both better security and user experience by incorporating cold wallet storage - offline cryptocurrency storage - directly into the phone.

You'll also be able to easily trade with peers on the phone's network - without any mining fees.
