Global electronics giant HTC has announced that it’s new smartphone, the EXODUS 1s, will have full node capabilities for the Bitcoin blockchain. Building on the first generation of the company’s blockchain smartphone, Exodus 1, the new device will be the first smartphone to ever to have full node capabilities.
“We gave users the ability to own their own keys, and now we’ve gone one step further to allow users to run their own full node. We are democratizing access to the technology for a free world.” Phil Chen, Decentralized Chief Officer at HTC, noted.
Released last October, the HTC EXODUS 1 includes a cryptocurrency wallet and supports decentralized applications or dapps. Currently, the $699 phone is sold solely online.
