HTC’s new “cryptophone” lets users run full Bitcoin node

posted 4 months ago
Taiwanese electronics giant HTC unveiled its new “cryptophone” at Berlin’s Lightning conference this weekend. The new device comes with a built-in hardware wallet that allows users to store, exchange, send, receive, buy and sell Bitcoin.

Unlike other blockchain smartphones, HTC says the Exodus 1s can hold all the transactions in the Bitcoin blockchain (technically each HTC Exodus 1 is a node), effectively giving millions of people the power to transact Bitcoin, sending, receiving, and verifying directly, without needing a bank, crypto exchange or other third party. The device is priced at $233, and users will need to purchase a 400GB micro SD card.
