HTC’s blockchain smartphone dubbed the Exodus 1 now comes with support for 20 new apps. In addition to this, the smartphone is now up for grabs using real money (it was previously available in exchange for cryptocurrencies) for $699 in the US.
Known as decentralized apps or Dapps, the newly-introduced apps are available in the app store and are not owned by any specific company.
