The announcement was made at Binance Super Meetup in Singapore. The event featured Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, and CFO Wei Zhou.
HTC’s Binance Edition Exodus 1 smartphone is apparently the world’s first blockchain phone to incorporate Binance Chain blockchain.
The native Zion Vault crypto wallet app will be added alongwith Binance DEX where users can trade directly from the smartphone. Binance’s app and its Trust wallet too will come pre-loaded in the Exodus 1.
HTC’s Binance Edition Exodus 1 will soon be available for purchase on the official HTC website priced at $599. Customers can purchase the phone in crypto payments too.
Blockchain And Smartphones
Phil Chen, decentralized chief officer at HTC, says that like Binance the company too believes in borderless finance and is looking forward to supporting Binance Chain and DEX.
Chen also expressed hope that the partnership will bring a “completely new paradigm of digital asset exchanges and corresponding interactions.”
Zhao adds that smartphones can be a major player in mass crypto adoptions. It can act both as a point-of-sale terminal and payment device while cutting out the middlemen.
