HTC’s Blockchain Phone Now Supports Bitcoin Cash
Native support for bitcoin cash is coming to HTC’s blockchain phone.
Today, HTC announced its partnership with Bitcoin.com to add bitcoin cash support for its Exodus 1 blockchain phone. The new function will come with Bitcoin.com’s preinstalled wallet and be rolled into the Exodus 1 software update. Bitcoin.com will also sell the Exodus 1 and all future versions.
In a statement, HTC’s chief decentralization officer Phil Chen called the update a natural next step for the phone. “The Zion Vault is happy to support BCH natively in hardware so security goes hand-in-hand in the BCH blockchain as an alternative to dominant payment rails and platforms,” he said.
With the partnership, Zion Vault, the phone’s key management software can now secure BCH transfers by signing off on transactions.
