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

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.

According to a report by The Next Web, Taiwanese hardware manufacturer HTC is now working on an Android smartphone powered by blockchain technology.

Schematics of the phone shows it has a single camera, support for storage expansion, and nano-SIM support. Previously, he co-developed the Vive VR headset, and is responsible for the company's blockchain efforts. It also features "The Switzerland of Protocols", a "Universal" wallet, "DApps" (decentralized apps, for non-crypto normies), and all sorts of other nebulously defined features ostensibly meant to enhance security.

Key members of the HTC Exodus team include Sean Moss-Pultz, Edith Yeung, Chris McCann, Elizabeth Stark, and Dominic Williams.

Speaking to the publication, Chen stated that HTC is working on integrating blockchain applications with the phone's hardware in order to increase support for the entire blockchain ecosystem. "Together, we want to craft the best blockchain & decentralized application experiences to end consumers", he stated. "There is a lot of work ahead of us, but I believe the mobile hardware layer can contribute significantly to our new decentralized world". From a vague outline, the rear of the phone looks similar to most HTC phones today. Naturally, users will also be able to purchase the phone itself using cryptocurrency.

HTC has leapt on the crypotcurrency bandwagon after revealing plans for a smartphone powered by blockchain.

HTC's newest phone, the HTC Exodus, is one you'll probably never see vying for shelf space alongside the Galaxy S9, LG G7 or iPhone X.

There is no release date or price details for the Exodus at the moment.
