HTC Exodus 1s - blockchain for beginners

Is there a smartphone in the description of whichthere is the buzzword “blockchain”, is it mandatory to be inaccessible by a mere mortal toy? Apparently, this is still an optional condition, since there is a barrier at the entrance to the world of cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency wallets - it would be nice to understand what it really is.

So, after the announcement of the expensive HTC Exodus 1, which happened exactly a year ago, the company approached the user much closer. Presented smartphone HTC Exodus 1s, whose price is € 219.

The device is clearly aimed at the curiousthe public. It’s no longer a pity to give such an amount to indulge in technology. You can run a Bitcoin node on your smartphone - this is the first mobile device with Bitcoin Full Node support. It is better to do this by connecting the smartphone to a power outlet - a lot of energy will be required.

HTC Exodus 1s doesn't hit specifications -rather surprising, since the hardware of the smartphone is a highly ordinary solution. Built on a modest Snapdragon 435 chipset, it has 4 GB of RAM, the usual 5.7-inch HD + screen without any cost. There is a selfie camera - 13 MP, the main one has the same resolution. To make it clear what level we are talking about - the smartphone is based on a fairly simple and weak device HTC Desire 12S.

64 GB of internal memory, however, judgewhether this is enough is pointless. The idea of ​​a smartphone is to be able to keep a Bitcoin wallet with you, which necessarily requires a memory card with a minimum capacity of 512 GB. It is proposed to purchase it separately.
