HTC and Binance today announced a collaborative EXODUS 1 smartphone; the EXODUS 1 – Binance Edition. The original EXODUS 1 device is the first smartphone built around blockchain features and allows users to own their own cryptocurrency keys.

The EXODUS 1 – Binance Edition is the world’s first Binance Chain-ready cryptophone. The device has native support for the Binance DEX and comes pre-loaded with the Binance app and the TrustWallet app.

“Binance is one of those fearless companies that challenge the traditional borders of how things are done. This borderless vision is a cause that HTC EXODUS also aspires to. I’m excited to be supporting the Binance chain and it’s DEX because we are partnering with the biggest and most liquid crypto exchange along with the trust minimized principle of empowering users to own their own keys and run their own full bitcoin node. This combination and partnership will usher in completely new paradigms of digital asset exchange and interaction.”
– Phil Chen, Decentralized Chief Officer of HTC

Availability / Specs

The crypto phone will be available later this month for purchase through the EXODUS website, htcexodus.com, at the crypto equivalent price of USD $599 or SGD 889. That is at a USD $100 discount to the original EXODUS 1. As an additional bonus, a limited number of purchasers of the special edition device will receive a BNB airdrop. Further details will be announced in due course.

“Smartphones will play a key role in the crypto industry, and vice versa. Smartphones are the most natural device for a hardware wallet, that can be made simple to use and always with you. Crypto, on the other hand, will make every smartphone both a POS terminal and a payment device, cutting out most other middlemen. The implications are profound and far-reaching. The most innovative smartphone makers are racing to adopt crypto. We are delighted to support and work with HTC EXODUS to make sure its users can access the Binance chain and DEX to help people access crypto and exchange anywhere. I’m excited to see how this collaboration helps people adopt crypto through a smartphone, with a manufacturer that understands the brave steps needed to truly empower users.”
– Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance
