HTC Announces It Is Working On Blockchain-Based Android Phone

Posted by at 1:14 pm on May 15, 2018

HTC today pulled back the curtains on Exodus, a forthcoming phone based on blockchain.

“Our vision is to expand the blockchain ecosystem by creating the world’s first phone dedicated to decentralized applications and security,” said the company.

“With the release of the HTC Exodus we can now make this a reality.”

HTC explained that Exodus will work with multiple protocols with the intent of interoperability between blockchains. Each phone will serve as a node to help with decentralization.

HTC believes it can double or triple the number of nodes of Dfinity, Ethereum, and Bitcoin, for example.

The goal here will be to provide a way to facilitate cryptocurrency trading. The phone will feature a secure enclave, provide a trusted hardware stack with APIs that connect to wallets, and provide owners with their own identity and data on the phone, rather than one stored in the cloud.

HTC also hopes to increase the user base for DApps on mobile devices. The effort is being led by Phil Chen, HTC’s decentralized chief officer.

HTC didn’t say when the device might reach the market
