Pundi X Makes First Ever Blockchain Phone Call via XPhone and Function X at XBlockchain Summit

Pundi X Makes the First Ever Blockchain Phone Call During XBlockchain Summit

In a recent update provided by the CTO and Co-Founder of Pundi X, Pitt Huang, it was shared that the team was successful in making the first ever blockchain phone call using their device, the XPhone. This milestone was achieved on the second day of the XBlockchain Summit, which took place in Inaya Putri, Bali.

As for the specs of the XPhone, it supposedly does not rely on a mobile carrier, but instead works independently with the help of Pundi X’s “the Function X Blockchain”.

Huang describes this respective blockchain as a “decentralized solution” that houses five key components, which includes Function X OS, Function X Blockchain, Function X IPFX, FXTP Protocol and Function X Docker. The five combined work together to “decentralize existing apps, websites, communications and data.”

What makes the Function X OS superior is that it is based off of a traditional system, i.e. Android OS 9.0, which means it is backward compatible with Android-based apps. This has been done to facilitate transitioning from a traditional to blockchain system for both developers and users.

As for the Function X ecosystem, it serves like every other blockchain that requires each device to act as a node – meaning that addresses and private keys will be in place. Huang noted that some of the features are in fact similar to the internet. For instance, when users want to access data (i.e. pictures, websites, files), he or she can do so by entering “FXTP://www.pitt” which clearly resembles “https:// protocol”.

In order to make phone calls, it is supposedly as simple as texting or e-mailing the XPhone the following different messages: ‘call.pitt’, ‘message.pitt’, or ‘mail.pitt’.

Curious to test it out yourself? Turns out the XPhone is only available for testing at the moment and has been scheduled for launch in the second quarter of 2019. However, more details regarding the Function X is said to be revealed on Monday, October 15.

This only goes to show the power of blockchain technology, as Huang put it,

“We’ve delivered proof of a working concept, one that upends centralized communications and adds new dimensions to blockchain technology.”
