Recently, HTC announced Exodus 1 as their first cryptocurrency enabled smartphone. The phone provides a storage solution for cryptocurrencies and gives accessibility to blockchain-based applications. An Android application named Zion, which is separated from the operating system of the phone has the ability to store all the private keys of the users.
A Redditor named jajarz says:
“HTC is a dying company, but they are going all in on hardware the incorporates future developments like VR, and Crypto. If they pull this off theyll be the next Apple.”
Another Redditor named Gromerando says:
“HTC phones run on Android, having Brave as default browser will only prevent Google from getting ur browsing habits, only if Google is not the default search engine on the browser So don’t really see the excitement as Google will still be able to track your every move”
