The creator of Litecoin also added that, as part of his involvement in development, the new device will support natively the LTC transactions (Litecoin) and Lightning Network LTC.

Lee also took a moment to point out that HTC will also come with the integrated support for Bitcoin which suggests that Exodus will play well with a c number of cryptocurrencies.

The Exodus is scheduled for launch on a date yet to be announced in the fall. It aims to be one of the first smartphone platforms in the world able to use smart contracts, manage dApps and explore the blockchain.

It is worth noting that HTC is not the only telephone company trying to make a foray into the blockchain space. In fact, Sirin Labs recently revealed its $ 1,000 phone with blockchain technology. But if any of these phones will actually be at the height of the hype is yet to be seen.
