HTC to roll out first blockchain smartphone in 3Q18

14 July 2018, 04:59 | Casey Mitchell

HTC announced last May that it was working on a phone called Exodus, its first blockchain-based smartphone, a security technology that forms the basis of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

Yesterday, the HTC executive told The Verge that Exodus's blockchain support will come in the form of an in-house crypto wallet and a CryptoKitties service integration. There still aren't any real details about the specifications of the Exodus, and indeed, the website looks mostly the same as it did when the phone was first announced back in May. But some experts do argue that if the market for blockchain phone does exit then HTC can succeed in cashing on first mover advantage through Exodus.

It should be able to store your encrypted data on the device instead of the cloud and also store your crypto wealth while giving you control of your private keys. According to the official statement made on Tuesday, CryptoKitties is to roll out a version for mobile devices available on HTC's flagship phone the U12+ and the upcoming HTC Exodus.
