HTC’s Exodus Blockchain Phone Now Supports Bitcoin Cash

Palestinian terrorist group Hamas uses bitcoin to raise money

HTC has announced it is partnering with Bitcoin.com to add bitcoin cash support for its Exodus 1 blockchain phone, which will come with Bitcoin.com’s preinstalled wallet and be rolled into the Exodus 1 software update.

Bitcoin.com will also sell the Exodus 1 and all future versions. Zion Vault, the phone’s key management software, will also be able to secure BCH transfers.

“The Zion Vault is happy to support BCH natively in hardware so security goes hand-in-hand in the BCH blockchain as an alternative to dominant payment rails and platforms,” HTC’s chief decentralization officer Phil Chen said, according to CoinDesk.

In other news, blockchain monitoring and intelligence platform Parsiq revealed that it is now offering its analytics tools to both businesses and customers to give them “insightful blockchain data for sound decision-making.”

The company aims to give clients greater control over their crypto assets, allowing them to monitor the blockchain state in real time via the ParsiQL programming language. The company's main goal is to reduce market manipulation and boost transparency, according to Cointelegraph.

German crypto investment startup Neufund announced it has launched its first retail offering.

“Following the legal clearance from the Financial Monetary Authority in Liechtenstein, we can now host offerings with a ticket size of just 10 EUR, making them accessible to investors of all sizes. The first offering comes from Greyp, a high-tech mobility platform backed by Porsche, T-Mobile and Slock.it — and it starts today,” the company wrote in a blog post.

And NBA star Spencer Dinwiddie is looking to sell digital tokens tied to his $34.36 million contract extension. That means that instead of waiting to be paid his salary over the next three years, he could have income streams well beyond 2022. Investors in Dinwiddie’s offering would reportedly be paid principal and interest, according to a report in The Athletic.
