Altcoin News: Huobi Released a Blockchain Smartphone
Huobi Global cryptocurrency exchange, together with the Whole Network startup, has released the Acute Angle blockchain smartphone with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet.
Acute Angle is already available in the Chinese market at a price of $515, which is almost half the price of competitors’ blockchain smartphones, for example, Sirin Labs Finney, which costs $1,000. However, if you buy Acute Angle for Huobi HT tokens, its price will drop by almost twice.
It is reported that in the fourth quarter of this year, the smartphone will appear in the markets of other countries of Southeast Asia. The start date for sales in Europe and the US is still unknown, but the exchange said they would try to do it as quickly as possible. Huobi Global CEO Livio Weng emphasized:
“We think blockchain phones are a promising area for future blockchain industry development. As the industry develops and as innovations like 5G become increasingly integrated into our telecommunications systems, we believe more and more crypto communities will want to trade and transact from mobile devices.”
Acute Angle supports push notifications of trade transactions, a decentralized cryptocurrency wallet and its own Whole Network token — NODE. Also, as an option for the device, you can buy a cold wallet plugin.
Yesterday it was reported that Samsung Electronics will present its blockchain-related developments at the SDC Developer 2019 conference. The event will be held in San Jose, California in October this year.
