HTC to make blockchain-powered phone called the Exodus

Share

The phone is called Exodus and it's being imaged as a phone that gives users the agency to "take back the internet", telling social media sites to "let my data go" and leaving individuals' information in literally their own hands, not in the centralized servers of Facebook and Google. The phone named "Exodus" will host a universal wallet and inbuilt secure hardware for cryptocurrencies and applications powered by distributed ledger technology.

These phones will act as nodes on the network and will enable trading of cryptocurrency among the Exodus users. If that doesn't get you Mr. Robot fanboys going, I don't know what will.

Introduced and led by Phil Chen, a co-founder of HTC Vive, the Exodus is meant to be the "world's first phone dedicated to decentralized applications and security".

Americans think Meghan Markle will wear traditional wedding dress
Although it is unclear if Thomas Markle was paid for the photos, the pictures were sold for about $100,000 around the world. Harry and Markle have invited 600 guests to the wedding, which will be followed by a gala reception hosted by the queen.

At launch, HTC will support Bitcoin, Lightning Networks, Ethereum, Dfinity and other "underlying protocols".

Though no additional specs, pricing or even confirmation that the HTC Exodus would run Android, HTC has opened up a reservation form for those interested in a blockchain friendly phone. Naturally, users will also be able to purchase the phone itself using cryptocurrency.

The phone's called "Exodus" and will be released this October. With a Blockchain smartphone, HTC is going to need to build an ultra-secure smartphone, which is something HTC hasn't done before (and really no manufacturer has), but it should make for an interesting device.

Theresa May calls for independent inquiry into 'tragic' Gaza deaths
Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 104 Palestinians and wounded about 12,000 others. For Palestinians, the violence in Gaza is a manifestation of pent-up frustration and anger surrounding the hope for peace.

Huawei is also reportedly considering the technology for one of its future devices.

But, all of these features can be integrated into any average smart phone with the help of software alone, and trading Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will incur mining fees to transfer anyway - whether on regular phones or blockchain phones. Blockchain and cryptocurrency are becoming big topics these days, with many anxious that the traditional currencies might be worthless in a few years.

Why Deadpool Will Never Join the Avengers or X-Men Onscreen
Not to be outdone, Deadpool - who has similar mutant healing abilities - ignites big drums of fuel on which has been lying. Often, when I confess my disdain for Deadpool to others, they act as if I just confessed some awful , unforgivable crime.
