Decentraland (MANA), the first virtual reality platform owned by its users, went on a major rally Tuesday after announcing that the Decentraland Marketplace will be available on the Exodus 1, HTC’s first blockchain-enabled phone.
We’re excited to announce our new partnership with HTC! We’ll be working with HTC to bring the Decentraland ecosystem to the Exodus 1, HTC’s blockchain enabled phone, complete with an integrated hardware wallet. Read more on our blog at: https://t.co/a5g8FhEhry pic.twitter.com/JE6vijVSBC

“Decentraland and the Exodus team are collaborating to bring the Decentraland ecosystem to the Exodus 1, the world’s first native blockchain smartphone,” reads the announcement. “This means that all of your Decentraland assets can be securely stored in the Zion Vault, the all-in-one private vault on the blockchain.”
With the integration, the Exodus will allow users to secure their Decentraland identities, data and assets directly in their mobile phone, without the need for third-party apps. Both Decentraland’s LAND (ERC-721 virtual real estate tokens) and MANA will be supported by the Zion Vault.
As a result of the announcement, MANA surged more than 30% Tuesday before pulling back to $0.047088 where it currently stands, giving the altcoin a $49.5 million market cap.
MANA’s cell phone-inspired surge follows huge rallies for Enjin (ENJ), Cosmo Coin (COSM), ICON (ICX) and Basic Attention Token (BAT) after news circulated Monday that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will likely come with built-in support for the Enjin Wallet.
