The Taiwanese firm on Tuesday revealed the “HTC Exodus,” which it depicts as the “world’s first local blockchain telephone.”
The Android-fueled telephone will be carefully fit to offer help for decentralized applications (DApps) like CryptoKitties, and it will include a protected equipment enclave to give clients access to a general digital currency wallet that is local to the gadget.

I want to see a world where the end consumers can truly own their data (browsing history, identity, assets, wallets, emails, messaging, etc) without the need for central authorities. There is a lot of work ahead of us, but I believe the mobile hardware layer can contribute significantly to our new decentralized world.
