HTC Exodus

Will this phone give HTC a way to boost its ailing smartphone fortunes? And now he is back to wow the world with HTC's advanced device and to manage all the company's cryptocurrency and blockchain-related initiatives.

I want to see a world where the end consumers can truly own their data (browsing history, identity, assets, wallets, emails, messaging, etc) without the need for central authorities. As reported earlier, Finney is the first blockchain centric smartphone with an emphasis on supporting Decentralized apps. Regarding the former, the Exodus will support Bitcoin and Ethereum (for now), with support for other digital currencies to follow at a later date.

Taipei, Taiwanese tech giant HTC is reportedly working on a new Android phone named "Exodus" that will be powered by blockchain technology. The company foresees the phone as a "hub" or node for Bitcoin and Ethereum, with plans to support "the entire blockchain ecosystem".

According to Chen, the functionality of a blockchain friendly phone would extend beyond cryptocurrencies, though it would support those, but it would also support decentralised applications (Dapps).

What do you think of the HTC Exodus?

First reported by TheNextWeb, Chen will be transitioning into a new role at HTC to head up the project called "decentralized chief officer". Chen said that he believes that a blockchain-powered smartphone might inspire a new wave of decentralized systems, in the same way that the availability of computers once paved the way for the makings of the internet. However, it seems like the company made a decision to take a break, or a separate group from the company chose to come ahead and announced an entirely new device, the HTC Exodus.

Currently, details regarding the price of the phone are scant.
