The price of Bitcoin, Ether and other cryptocurrencies might be in freefall, but HTC still forges ahead with the blockchained-powered Exodus phone. It also doesn’t plan to compromise on the price!
Phil Chen, the chief decentralizing officer of HTC, told The Verge that the HTC Exodus will cost around $1,000 and will launch by the end of Q3 of this year.
To drive up hype, HTC also partnered with the famous CryptoKitties, a blockchain-based game that created mayhem back in November. The most popular app using Ethereum so far, CryptoKitties at one point accounted for 15% of the entire traffic on the network.
Now, CryptoKitties are invading HTC phones; the blockchain-powered exodus will support the game, but it will first be launched on the HTC U12 Plus.
