HTC created a cryptocurrency and blockchain oriented phone named the Exodus 1 and in today’s blockchain news we find out more about it.
The phone is designed to work as a blockchain mobile and to operate securely with dApps and cryptocurrencies. The Brave browser which would be the default browser for the Exodus 1 phone is created by Brendan Eich who is the Mozilla Firefox browser developer.
The HTC Exodus 1 hopes to use Brave in order to restore the ownership of personal data and to provide crypto owners with a private and secure key storage by using a secure enclave on the phone named Zion.
Brave is not blockchain based but does aim to decentralize the Ethereum-based BAT. Eich describes the BAT platform as semi-centralized because of the need to reward Brave publishers. While talking in an interview, Eich said:
“We will decentralize much of the BAT platform over time, but as our roadmap describes, not all at once and up front. That is neither scalable nor anonymous on today’s main blockchains.”
The Brave browser offers its users the possibility to block all adverts and cookies thus provide them with a faster navigation and search. This way a huge amount of the user data that is collected by Google and Microsoft will likely be eliminated.
The users will get rewards that opt to view adverts with the BAT tokens which the advertisers must pay. Brave has already achieved more than 10 million downloads and five million active users that continue to grow.
