Sikur Blockchain Phone SIKURPhone Launches with SikurOS and Crypto Wallet Support
The Hype For Blockchain Phones Continues As Sikur Has Brought Its Product To The Market
The blockchain phones have been able to garner some hype, but the market value for this gadgets is yet to be set; as a result, many companies are trying to launch their phones as soon as possible. And the latest launch was from Sikur as the SIKURPhone has been made available today.
The SIKURPhone Has Been Made Available
There are several questions as to what makes a particular phone to be useful; this is in terms of the blockchain technology. For the company Sikur, their aim was to bridge the present gap that exists between mobile phones and the crypto market, and this has been made possible by the company through the SikurOS software. The software has been designed as a fork of the Android operating system, but just with additional twists to it.
The Phone Comes With Desirable Features
With the phone, the company has ensured it is able to offer a native crypto wallet support plus other security-oriented support. With the current nature of the crypto coins, the introduction of features that protects the users at all times is not considered to be an unnecessary luxury. The ability to quickly wipe your phone, just in case of a theft, is a feature we are sure as a crypto user you will find to be very useful.
As we know losing access to your device can be a little problematic for any crypto coin that has been linked to the particular phone.
Later on in 2018, the company has proposed that there will be a native Secure App Store that will go live. It will be able to provide the device owners with several vetted applications that will be related to the crypto market and blockchain technology. The apps you should expect at the launch is a little unclear at the moment, it is because the company has not officially unveiled the app.
The launch of a blockchain phone just before having the needed application seems to be a little unusual, however, users will be in a position to access the native wallet functions very easily straight from purchase.
Looking At The Hardware Of The Phone
When we look at the hardware side, the company has ensured to have the phone packing with quite a punch. The first thing is, the company has designed two different models which have been made available, the main difference is the density of the camera pixel, storage, and RAM.
Both the phones have been based on the Sony Android smartphones, with one of the models using the XZ1as its base, while the second model has been built to be similar to the XA2. Since none of these two models are current, the choice of the company to use them as a base is found to be a little odd.
It is important to note that these phones are not the first type of SIKURPhone that has hit the market. Early this year, the company had designed the original model, this is both on the software and hardware side.
But the shift the company made to use the native SikurOS has not been communicated, and yet the company seems to be in a mission of partnering with different manufacturers in the next few months. With this, we should expect to see more blockchain phones hitting the market very soon.
It is evident that the crypto market is growing in popularity, making this a positive sign, especially for the investors in the market. Because this goes to show that altcoins and Bitcoins are genuinely here to stay. But also the building of dedicated phones to the blockchain technology could actually be a very risky endeavor.
It is also clear that Sikur is embarking on an exciting path, but also they could be onto something much more significant with the collaboration they have gotten into with manufacturers. Something we should keep an eye on.
