HTC Exodus Blockchain Phone’s ZION Vault Now Supports Stellar Network
The wallet app named Zion of the HTC’s blockchain phone Exodus, the world first native blockchain phone dedicated to decentralized applications and security now supports Stellar Network (XLM).
HTC Exodus took to Twitter to share the news with the community,
At the time of writing, the eight-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Stellar has been trading at $0.124 with 24-hours gains of 1.67 percent as per Coinmarketcap.
On January 14th, the phone was finally shipped to the customers after weeks of delay and receiving messages from customer. But it all must have paid off as HTC Exodus comes with an array of features for the cryptocurrency users.
The semi-transparent device has a wallet app that comes preloaded on Exodus. The wallet named Zion though limited in functionality works just fine for crypto users.
Currently this security enclave support Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Ethereum (ETH), ERC20 tokens like BAT, the native token of Brave browser that comes installed in the phone, and some of the ERC721 tokens as well.
Packing A Punch
With a reasonable UX, sending and receiving cryptocurrencies through this wallet app is fairly easy. However, there is no ability to create new addresses you are stuck in the same three wallets for Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum unless of course, you want to create an entirely new wallet.
For the social recovery option, it enables you to select a trusted friend to help you restore your wallet in the event of phone loss. This is certainly a drawback but it is a trade off cryptocurrency users may be willing to make in return for having to access the crypto on the go.
For $750, this phone comes with an impressive screen size along with a feature called Edge Sense 2 that provides you with single-handed convenience by shrinking the visible screen that you can activate by double tapping on the side of the phone.
This model has about twice the internal storage as the Galaxy S9 and the same resolution camera and the same processor.
With its exclusive feature in the form of a built-in cryptocurrency hardware wallet with the key stored in the secure enclave of this phone surely packed a punch but now with Samsung Galaxy’s new model S10 coming with a wallet as well, the options for crypto users especially are broadening as cryptos go mainstream.
