HTC is making a big bet to regain market share for its phones. That bet is clearly on the table with the launch of its blockchain-focused phone. You can only buy it with Bitcoin or Ether; which represents its intended audience.
- HTC’s Exodus 1 comes with a secluded area kept separate from the Android operating system it runs on to keep a customer’s cryptocurrency safe.
- The blockchain-based phone is part of HTC’s shifting strategy regarding smartphones, which will prioritize software and intellectual property.
- It is available for pre-order at a price of 0.15 bitcoins or 4.78 ether tokens, which translates to about $960, and is expected to be shipped by December.
