CCN: HTC plans to launch a second generation of the Exodus 1 blockchain smartphone by 2019, according to the Chief Decentralized Officer Phil Chen.
The upcoming Exodus 1s will provide more support for decentralized browsing, messaging, and social media apps (dapps). But that's not all. The second gen blockchain smart phone will also be able to run a full bitcoin node HTC said Saturday.
So with the $ 300 smartphone due Q4 2019 you'll be able to find the entire bitcoin blockchain on your smartphone and verify transactions. 19659004] The Blockchain Smartphone Could Have a Mobile, Decentralized Internet
If the technology now exists for anyone to secure their savings on an open source block on a decentralized network, why not secure all their data? The only limits are the space and computing power, but these limits will be no issue in a few years.
The most obvious reason might be getting paid for your own data. If your data is valuable, why not keep control over it and get paid for it instead of giving it away?
Another reason is privacy. Sure we know what Apple and Alphabet are watching, and we all agree to it for the benefits we get in return.
But what about unwanted surveillance? Whether by sovereign states or cyber criminals? Why trust private information in the hands of a third party when we secure and authenticate the data our devices transmit?
Total Network Equality on Blockchain Smartphones
Another likely outcome of blockchain smartphones is decentralized social media platforms with transparent algorithms, in which accounts can not be banned or shadowed by any central authority, and content cannot be censored.
