Over the past few years, plenty of cryptocurrencies have been created that have further broadened the ecosystem, and one of the most important ones is Bitcoin Cash. On the other hand, it has to be taken into consideration how a crypto ecosystem is emerging pretty quickly, and one of the recent developments in this regard are crypto phones—or blockchain phones.

Over the past weeks, companies like Samsung and LG have announced plans to introduce crypto smartphones, which is why the latest development with regards to HTC is not really a surprise.

Important News for Bitcoin Cash

In a new development, smartphone manufacturing giant HTC has teamed up with to support BCH on the crypto wallets in HTC’s blockchain phone. published a press release on Monday and announced that it is going to come in as a long-term partner with HTC. Due to the consummation of this partnership, the two will now work together on the Exodus 1 smartphone from HTC and ensure that the built-in crypto wallet supports Bitcoin Cash. This is another development that seeks to make it easier for people to store their BCH tokens. If the whole thing becomes easier, then there is every possibility that the demand for these tokens will rise as well.

On the other hand, it is also important to note that this move from HTC is an indication of the fact that the smartphone maker is trying everything to claw its way back into the market. Back in 2018, the company’s market share dropped to an abysmal 1%, and maybe the company believes that the introduction of a crypto phone might just be the tonic that it needs.

That being said, it is necessary to keep in mind that HTC is a believer in cryptocurrencies and has been involved in a range of projects over the past months. The partnership with and the inclusion of Bitcoin Cash looks like a deliberate effort.

LG Working on a Blockchain Phone to Compete with Samsung

A blockchain phone is not something many would have thought of even a few years ago. Even around three years ago when the remarkable cryptocurrency bull run had just started off, it was still looked upon as a novelty, and not many had a lot of ideas about what it could eventually become. At the time it was unthinkable that a really strong ecosystem was going to grow that could make cryptocurrency ownership and trading far easier for people.

Blockchain Phone Market Heats Up

That being said, it has actually come to pass that the crypto ecosystem is getting stronger with every passing month. Last week, the Korean electronics giant Samsung announced that it is going to come up with its own crypto supporting phone.

However, its fierce competitor and fellow Korean electronics giant, LG, was not going to be left behind. It has now emerged in the South Korean press that LG is currently in discussions with DApp, a blockchain application developer and is keen to introduce its own brand of blockchain phone. It is a step that LG had to take in order to ensure that it does not fall behind Samsung, which is all set to include blockchain capabilities in the Galaxy Note 10 model that is going to be launched soon.

This is an entirely new development in the world of smartphones and one that could well open the floodgates for other companies to follow suit. The Samsung blockchain phone is going to be equipped with its own crypto wallet, and that is an interesting feature, considering the fact that many crypto investors do not like to hold their tokens on exchanges.

Samsung is going to launch this particular phone in the South Korean market initially and then it will go from there. LG’s plans with regards to the matter are currently unknown, and the reports did not indicate whether it is going to launch a blockchain phone at a global level.
