The HTC Exodus 1 is the company's first blockchain phone and can only be purchased with Bitcoin or Ethereum. According to HTC, this new smartphone features full blockchain encryption and is dedicated to security and decentralized applications. The HTC Exodus 1 also functions as its own blockchain node.
This focus on the blockchain allows the HTC Exodus 1 to be an incredibly secure place to store the keys to any cryptocurrency vault. Known as the "secure enclave" by HTC, these keys are protected separately from the rest of the phone and its Android OS. The phone also features a Social Key Recovery mechanism, which allows users to pick a few trustworthy contacts to hold a portion of a user's crypto keys.
