HTC Announces Sales Of Blockchain Smartphone Exodus 1 For Fiat
The Taiwanese company HTC announced the sale of its blockchain smartphone Exodus 1 for fiat, as well as Litecoin and Binance Coin, during the Mobile World Congress in Spain, ForkLog reports.
The new smartphone costs $699. Currently, anyone can purchase the mobile device exclusively in the online store, but the telecom operators will start selling Exodus 1 in their stores soon.
HTC distinguished itself by another innovation — the blockchain smartphone Exodus 1 began to support the Opera browser. Users can now make small transactions directly on websites.
Payments via mobile apps can also be made using the built-in Zion crypto wallet. It should be noted that it works independently from the operating system of the mobile device itself; therefore, this wallet can be considered more secure from external influence. Exodus 1 also supports Decentraland and Etheremon apps.
In December 2018, HTC announced that the decentralized browser Brave, which is known for blocking ads and trackers of various websites, will be built into the Exodus 1 model.
As previously reported, Samsung introduced the new mobile device Galaxy S10 with embedded hardware, which stores users' private keys for mobile blockchain services.
