HTC's blockchain phone is real, and it's arriving later this year

The Exodus smartphone will be equipped with a cold storage wallet to keep cryptocurrencies offline and safe from cyberattacks, and support decentralized apps, the company said. It can also be used as a mining rig for its users to earn new tokens connected to the Exodus Blockchain.

With the mad rush for blockchain enabled device, Exodus might be a major hit for a company that shipped over 2 million in the first quarter but has thus been able to manage a meager 630,000 in Q1 of this year. 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.

Meanwhile, industry experts are sharply divided over whether Exodus can really pull off a miracle for HTC.

'Turncoats' boost Imran's prospects in elections
The military denies involvement in civilian politics but ended Sharif's second stint in power in 1999 in a bloodless coup. Imran Khan said that PTI will form government in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after the July 25 general election.

But on Tuesday, the company gave us just a tiny bit more info about the Exodus phone, including something that resembles a launch date.

For HTC, the ultimate goal is to build up an ecosystem of blockchain-friendly apps specifically for this community.

When it was initially announced back in May, Chen had commented that "we envision a phone where you hold your own keys, you own your own identity and data, and your phone is the hub".

Every Exodus phone will boast a universal wallet, and will also act as a node in the blockchain. First revealed earlier in 2018, we now know that the phone will be launching in "early access" later this year.

Argentina asks Russian Federation to arrest Iran official over 1994 bombing
Iran denies involvement and Velayati rejected the accusations as a lie in a 2015 interview with Argentine television channel C5N. He said Iran and Russian Federation will maintain their military presence in Syria to make sure terrorists will not resurge.

Phil Chen, HTC's Decentralisation Chief Officer, told The Verge, in an interview published this week, that the Exodus can be expected toward the latter part of the year, with an official price announcement coming around the end of Q3.

"I want to say it will be available indefinitely everywhere outside of China".

By working with Animoca (the distributor of Cryptokitties) and Bitmark ("the crypto-based digital ownership project"), HTC will be able to further its advancements into the crypto world.

What do you think of CryptoKitties being put on HTC devices?
