The blockchain phone from PundiX is almost ready for launch. The device, officially called “Blok on Blok” or BOB, will go on pre-order in Q4 2019 at a price of $599 via Kickstarter and PundiX’s XWallet.
The initial batch will see a production run of 5,000 units, which it is considering prototypes before a planned full retail launch.
The new smartphone will have all data executed over its Function X blockchain system, while centralized service providers will not store users’ personal details.
“BOB marks a big step forward in our mission of creating a Blockchain Internet, a fully decentralized network where every piece of data shared is under the owner’s control. More importantly, BOB gives a sneak peek of a world powered entirely by blockchain technology, where everyone has control over their own data and everything is executed with the expectations of immutability and transparency,” Zac Cheah, co-founder and CEO of Pundi X, said.
