According to the announcement, HTC’s EXODUS 1 – Binance Edition will be the world’s first Binance Chain-ready smartphone, and the phone’s Zion Vault will be integrated with the Binance DEX, enabling users to trade directly on their phone.
“Smartphones will play a key role in the mass adoption of crypto and smartphones are the most natural devices for a hardware wallet that is simple to use and always with you,” said Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao. “Crypto, on the other hand, will make every smartphone both a POS terminal and payment device, cutting out most other middlemen. The implications are profound and far-reaching, and the most innovative smartphone makers are racing to integrate crypto use for mass adoption and seamless usability. We are delighted to support and work with HTC EXODUS to help people access crypto anywhere and anytime. We are excited to collaborate with a manufacturer that is taking the innovative steps forward to empower users and further adoption.”
Binance notes that the phone will soon be available for purchase directly through HTC’s Exodus website for $599 and the first 500 buyers will receive a $100 bonus in BNB.
“Binance is one of those fearless companies that challenge traditional financial systems and how things are done,” added Phil Chen, Decentralized Chief Officer of HTC. “Their vision of borderless finance is a cause that EXODUS also aspires to.”
