The electronics giant has produced during its existence more than 100 million smartphones, and now promises to “reshape the internet” by “making decentralization a reality.”
The new HTC Exodus is due to be released this year.
BTC and ETH will be supported as well
Furthermore, to the same extent as Litecoin (LTC) holders, the new product will also support Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), two of the world’s most famous cryptocurrencies. As reported by the Taiwanese giant, the upcoming smartphone is set to support cryptocurrency-powered transactions between users of the same product.
When everything seemed to be enough, the company enjoyed its users on 10 July with a new announcement. According to it, the Exodus smartphone will come with a built-in crypto wallet and famous CryptoKitties game.
“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. There is a lot of work ahead of us, but I believe the mobile hardware layer can contribute significantly to our new decentralized world,” stated Phil Chen, the company’s Decentralized Chief Officer.
