In fact, the company is now working on a new smartphone with the code name "Exodus" which will be the first blockchain smartphone in the world. It remains to be seen exactly how the connection to the rest of the system, which of course also has online access in the HTC Exodus, will look. The Exodus device should be available in early Q3 for the first users, the company said.

"Mobile is the most prevalent device in the history of humankind and for digital assets and dapps to reach their potential, mobile will need to be the main point of distribution".

It's called the Exodus, and according to the newly-launched website to promote it, it's "the first cold wallet phone with key recovery". The launch of device announced by the Taiwanese firm during CoinDesk's Consensus 2018 conference is set in the third quarter of this year, which should mean in three months tops.More news: Giuliani: Strzok Testimony a 'Disgrace'
