The cryptocurrency and blockchain technology euphoria is creeping in among institutions and corporates. The question of the industry being a fad are slowly facing death as more and more institutions take up blockchain technology. Samsung announced last week that the Galaxy S10, a world beater in the smartphone industry, will be released with an inbuilt cryptocurrency wallet.
HTC did one better by releasing the first blockchain smartphone in the market, HTC Exodus One. The release of Exodus One is set to usher in a new era of secure data storage and transactions and take blockchain technology mobile for the first time. The HTC Exodus smartphone comes with the Zion Vault wallet that allows users to store your private keys safely offline. Furthermore, the wallet allows users to send, receive, and store their BTC, ETH, LTC, ERC20 tokens and recently the ERC721 collectible tokens.
Reports on Tuesday from Decentraland revealed that the MANA and LAND tokens on Decentraland will be integrated to the Zion Vault Wallet for storage.
The Integration Of Decentraland On HTC Exodus One
The two institutions, Decentraland and HTC Exodus One are working towards innovative ways that will promote the security of digital identities and easy management of your assets. Users of the Exodus One smartphone will be able to store their private keys securely promoting the management and security of digital identities.
Further efforts are being made to ensure users on the platform can buy and sell MANA and LAND on the smartphone in the future.
The Decentraland Builder’s Competition
Decentraland will run a competition starting March 15th, 2019 to boost the adoption of the first ever drag and drop scene editor. The competition dubbed, “The Builder Creator Contest” will allow competitors to use the editor to create, design and build their own 3D environments on Decentraland virtual platform, The Builder. The competition is expected to run for two weeks with winnings ranging from an Exodus smartphone, LAND, MANA and other virtual assets on the Decentraland platform.
Anyone across the world can participate in the competition and will have two weeks to complete the design of the 3D environment. A panel of judges will make the final decision on the winner of the prizes on offer.
