The crypto community has long been fascinated to have cell phones that can be used to hold and send the cryptocurrency. Such technology opens up a completely different world of commerce in which the Bitcoin-powered phones communicate using Bitcoin or other currencies. The makers of the Solarin secure phone are now offering a new $999 phone named as Finney. The phone has been named after the pioneer of Bitcoin Hal Finney who died in 2014. The device offers an ultra-secure block-chain enabled environment which has the functionality and essentials of the Android OS. That’s not all; the company also plans to introduce a desktop computer worth $799 and have similar features. The phone is going to be the first ever proper bitphone. The company is holding a token sale for allowing only the token holders to purchase the phone for maintaining actual crypto bona fides.
Finney is expected to have a 5.2-inch of the display screen, and 8 GB RAM and has a 256 GB of storage. It will also be having a 12-megapixel front camera as well as a 16-megapixel rear camera. The device is going to develop an independent blockchain network and will be powered by the IOTA’s Tangle Technology. The phone will hold and app store for the decentralized applications and will have a built-in wallet for a physical authentication. It will have three factors of authentication along with a secure resource sharing among the devices.
This device is going to be a unique product, therefore, a lot is expected from Solarin on producing the first real bitphone.
