The telephone company HTC prepares second generation of mobile phones that interact with blockchains
The Taiwanese origin smartphone maker, HTC, is working on the new version of its mobile enabled to interact with blockchains. The announcement was made by its executive director Phil Chen, at a forum held in Taipei on Friday, April 26.
Chen, who is responsible for the company’s blockchain initiatives, said they will launch the next generation of blockchain phones during the second half of 2019, the Taiwan News website reported. According to Chen, the company is satisfied with the performance and sales of the HTC Exodus, the first model for the cryptocurrency market, so renewing it is the logical step.
El teléfono inteligente Exodus, lanzado hace poco más de seis meses, se presentó como un dispositivo con un monedero de criptomoneda incorporado en un “enclave seguro”, aislado del sistema operativo. En este sector, las claves personales se almacenan para acceder a criptomonedas como Bitcoin, Litecoin y Ethereum. Además, HTC se asoció con el proyecto Decentraland, para ofrecer acceso a sus tokens ERC-721 (LAND), así como a la criptomoneda del proyecto (MANA), desde el móvil Exodus.
According to the information available, Phil Chen pointed out that the new generation of mobile phones will take advantage of other blockchain potentials such as navigation, messages and social networks. These applications will be based on peer-to-peer connections, without the need to use the cloud as a path, as is done in the first generation of devices, said Chen.
According to the reports, Chen confirmed that, in addition to the new line of smartphones, HTC seeks to diversify its offer of products for the management of digital assets. In this sense, they will meet the demand generated by HTC Exodus, by startups related to the cryptocurrency industry.
