HTC announced that the brand's first blockchain smartphone, “EXODUS 1”, opened beta to mobilize blockchain technology and expand and improve the blockchain ecosystem. This is also the first time a user can apply for a preemptive experience on the HTC Exodus website via Bitcoin or Ethereum. The estimated delivery date is December.
As a blockchain mobile phone, data security is a top priority. HTC"EXDOUS 1" The public beta has a built-in Secure Enclave that is independent of Android and keeps the user's key in a safe place. Whether it is currency or irreplaceable tokens (NFTs), or the electronic data of mobile phones in future versions, you can get security.
Currently, HTC has developed a unique Social Key Recovery mechanism to prevent users from losing, stolen or forgetting keys. This method is simple and easy to operate, but it is enough to help users safely recover lost keys in the hardware. At the same time, the mechanism ensures that HTC does not store the user's key in a data center at any time. The user chooses several trusted contacts to save the key, and each contact must download the key management application. The user then splits the mnemonic using a secret sharing algorithm and sends it to the selected contact. If a demand for a key is generated, the user can obtain a mnemonic from several trusted contacts and regain the key.
HTC is inviting cryptographers and developers from around the world to join the Exodus community to help improve the performance of Secure Enclave. As part of the beta program, HTC has invited feedback from all parties on the official channel of Telegram to improve security storage performance.
“10 years ago, HTC launched its first Android phone, and Bitcoin and the Creation Zone have been around for almost 10 years. The EXODUS 1 public beta is one of the fundamental elements of an encrypted Internet. We believe that mobile devices will be a major focus for digital assets and decentralized applications. We look forward to working with developers in the blockchain field to achieve this vision. & rdquo; HTC Chief Blockchain Officer Chen Xinsheng said.
During further enhancements, HTC will soon release an API that allows third-party developers to use the “EXODUS 1” public beta phone to protect keys and sign transactions. In addition, HTC will also release Zion Key Management APIs and software development kits to partners with the same vision to extend the blockchain ecosystem to solidify the foundation of Internet security and trust.
HTC is expanding the blockchain ecosystem by creating mobile phones with decentralized applications and security. The emergence of Bitcoin and Ethereum brings the concept of digital scarcity and irreplaceable tokens. The “EXODUS 1” public beta is a particularly important step in providing a platform and distribution channel for developers who create irreplaceable digital products.
