HTC has already confirmed that it’s going to release a second blockchain smartphone ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2019/05/htc-confirms-second-blockchain-phone-is-in-development/) to follow the Exodus. The company has now revealed some additional information about this device. The Exodus 1s will be a cheaper version of its Exodus flagship blockchain smartphone ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2019/02/htc-exodus-blockchain-bought-with-real-money/) which was launched last year.
A spokesperson for the company told ^(https://www.engadget.com/2019/05/11/htc-exodus-1s-blockchain-phone-node/) Engadget that the device is slated for release by the end of Q3 this year. It’s expected to cost between $250 to $300. There isn’t a lot of information about the handset’s specs and features at this point in time, though, but HTC did confirm that the device will act as a full node.
What this means is that the Exodus 1s will be able to function as one of the distributed points which validate and relay transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain even though it won’t be able to mine any cryptocurrency on its own.
However, HTC’s Decentralized Chief Officer Phil Chen told the scribe that the company will work with partners that “will offer hash rates to do so.” The new device will have support for HTC’s Zion wallet app which can be used to send and request multiple cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ether in addition to some Ethereum-based tokens.
HTC will confirm details about the device’s specs and its release date in the not too distant future, given that Q3 2019 is merely a few months away.
Blockchain is a growing list of records called blocked which are linked using cryptography.
Blockchain Collective in partnership with San Beda University
You can now study blockchain course in San Beda University!
In case you have been wondering about what is blockchain all about or if you want to learn more about it, you can enroll it now as a course in San Beda University in Manila!
This is possible with San Beda University’s partnership with Australia’s first and only government accredited Advanced Diploma of Applied Blockchain. Blockchain Collective conducted two-day intensive workshop focused on practical and relevant skills to Accounting and Finance students with solid foundation of blockchain knowledge.
There are lots of people who understood coding on the blockchain but when it came to actual strategic thinking on how to apply blockchain to business, that is when there’s a massive gap in the market, said Austin Lewinsmith, co-founder of Blockchain Collective. Currently, there are lots of universities that were doing blockchain short courses but without any certifications.
San Beda University believed that these students will be more confident in taking up their CPA exams or even those who are already professionals.
The workshop talked about knowledge and examples of Blockchain uses, its benefits and limitations and how it related to the accounting and financial sector. Blockchain’s history, evolution, terminologies, current place in the market, and its potential to disrupt many industry sectors were also tackled.
Those who participated received lifetime access to Learning Management System and resources (via online portal), seminar kits, online examination, and Certificate of Attendance that is recognized globally.
