HTC to launch the Exodus 1s in Q3 2019
HTC plans to launch a cheaper version of the smartphone that’s called the Exodus 1s during the Q3 of 2019.
According to the latest info coming from the Daily Hodl, the smartphone serves as a node on a blockchain that’s developed by HTC.
User data is updated and preserved on the blockchain in the most secure way and also on the device at the same time.
It’s essential to note that all the Exodus mobile phones allow users to store their digital assets in a built-in cold wallet.
Following HTC’s recent partnership with the developers of CryptoKitties, a highly popular game that’s built on the Ethereum network, the Exodus also lets people play this cool game.
Charlie Lee is an advisor for the development of the smartphone
The online publication notes that Charlie Lee has signed on as an advisor for the ongoing development of HTC’s Exodus smartphone.
Met the HTC Exodus team last week and was really excited to hear the phone will support LTC and Lightning Network on Litecoin natively! I will be an advisor as I see having a secure crypto phone that makes LN simple is needed for mass adoption.
P.S. No, they will not remove BTC. https://t.co/WQcygPVst0
