HTC Introduces New Phone with Bitcoin Full Node Support

The phone is to be launched with support for the bitcoin blockchain but HTC have not ruled out adding support for additional blockchains in the future.

Phil Chen revealed a new low-priced version of its blockchain phone, the EXODUS 1s at the conference.

Back during October past year, HTC surprised the world with the launch of the Exodus 1, its blockchain smartphone and a "secure cryptocurrency wallet". However, the Exodus was built on the U12 chassis, and HTC doesn't have a newer flagship phone to use for its next blockchain project.

As a result of these features, owners of the device will be able to verify monetary crypto transactions of any amount with the touch of a button. "We definitely want to support that first and given what bitcoin stands for, open, neutral, censorship-resistance". The same full node functionality is coming to the Exodus 1 as well, apparently, but that phone will need an SD card.

"[The 1s is] going to be a lot cheaper, it will be a lot more accessible", Chen said, adding that the company is planning to launch EXODUS 1s by the end of Q3.

Other features that could appear on the Exodus 1s as a result of partnerships made by HTC include the presence of search bar widget for the privacy-focused search engine Qwant and support for Ethereum explorer Etherscan. A device that acts as a Bitcoin node has to keep the entire blockchain history, which means that the device has to store around 200GB worth of data.

The next step for HTC is to make sure users contribute to the decentralized network, and they want to encourage that by allowing users to run their own nodes. With two of the most important annual conferences held in the crypto space, Magic Crypto Conference and Consensus, it's challenging to keep up with all the developments and innovation happening.

HTC Exodus 1S will be sold for somewhere between $250 and $300, and the release is planned to the third quarter this year.

Supporting the Bitcoin (BTC) network may soon be as simple as turning on your phone.

In saying so, the EXODUS 1s will also conduct normal smartphone operations as well, such as music, videos, pictures, apps, and dapps.
