“We want the user to be their own bank”…“We think it’s really really important that the user owns their own identity” — Phil Chen, CDO Exodus

HTC are not shy to try new ideas, they were the first company to make an android phone as well as one of the first to dive into the VR space. Now they are entering what they believe will be an emerging market of phones built around cryptocurrency and the development of these open protocols.

“We see the phone as a hub to supporting these protocols and distributing these protocols”… ”The more nodes that we can provide on these phones, the more distribution we can actually get.”

The work from HTC is advancing the adoption in a more serious yet invisible manner. HTC are pioneers in this market and are laying the groundwork for what could be the very real future of the technology by helping support these networks and bringing more user ran nodes online.
