HTC was a trailblazer with its move to bring an Android smartphone to market in the late 2000s – and now it wants to do the same with blockchain.
Telecoms giant Telefonica is partnering to build smartphone security solutions for blockchain-based transactions and messaging apps.
Taiwan-based electronics giant Foxconn is to help develop and build a blockchain phone from Sirin Labs, a news report indicates.
Sirin says its Finney phone will fill a gap in the crypto market. But as the adage goes, "hardware is hard," and in blockchain it may be even harder.
