HTC Launches Exodus 1s, a Blockchain Phone That Can Run a Full Bitcoin Node - Tunf News
Last Saturday, Taiwanese electronics manufacturer HTC introduced the Exodus 1s, a device that allows its users to access the Bitcoin network.
This presentation was held in Berlin, Germany, during the Lightning Conference. In it, HTC said it is the first smartphone on the market with the ability to run a full Bitcoin node, allowing it to propagate transactions and blocks anywhere.
Through a statement, HTC's chief decentralized officer Phil Chen said that "complete nodes are the fundamental element in the resilience of the Bitcoin network, and we have reduced the entry barrier for anyone to run a node."
In this order of ideas, the company recommends connecting to Wi-Fi and a power supply during the execution of the node, although it can also be done on the go.
About the price of this new device, the Exodus 1s will cost $ 244, which is a third of the price of its predecessor, the Exodus 1.
As for its features, the HTC Exodus 1s runs on Android Oreo 8.1. Also, it has 4 GB of RAM and 63 GB of internal storage, with the option to expand its memory with an SD card of more than 400 GB. Also has a built-in hardware wallet that will allow users to store cryptocurrencies securely.
This new HTC device will be available in 27 countries in Europe and the Middle East, including Greece, Germany, Saudi Arabia and UAE. So far, there are no plans to sell the device in the United States.
This device is the last to join the list of smartphones dedicated to blockchain. It contains the Finney device, created jointly by Foxconn and blockchain startup Sirin Labs, and Samsung's Galaxy S10. Also, LG is expected to be one of the next companies to launch a blockchain device.
