December 12, 2018. The decentralized browser running on the blockchain, Brave, is the chosen default browser for HTC’s first native blockchain phone.
Reported by CNET on December 10, 2018, the decentralized browser, Brave, is the default browser for surfing the internet on HTC’s Exodus 1. Brave’s Co-Founder, Mr. Brendan Eich, revealed on his Twitter account on December 8, 2018 about the partnership.
“We are very happy to have @Brave as default browser & to be working with HTC on their Exodus phone” – Mr. Brendan Eich, Co-Founder and CEO, Brave
Aside from Brave being the phone’s native browser, no other information was released about the details of the partnership.
Taiwanese mobile company, HTC, revealed in the third quarter of 2018 its first blockchain-powered mobile phone. It will have its own universal wallet and secure hardware that can store cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications (dApps).
“Through Exodus, we are excited to be supporting underlying protocols such as Bitcoin, Lightning Networks, Ethereum, Dfinity, and more. We would like to support the entire blockchain ecosystem, and in the next few months we’ll be announcing many more exciting partnerships together.” – Mr. Phil Chen, Decentralized Chief Officer, HTC
Brave, on the other hand, is a free open source decentralized browser that blocks ads and website trackers. It has its own coin called Basic Attention Token or BAT that users can use to pay for premium content or to reward their favorite publishers, content creators, etc.
Another telecommunications company based in Asia is also tapping the blockchain technology. Huawei recently launched its Blockchain Service (BCS) globally. It was previously made available in China and the company is now ready for the global market. The BCS is created to help entrepreneurs and developers create, deploy, and manage blockchain applications on the cloud.
