HTC is about to roll out a blockchain router that supports a full bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) node and a number of other crypto-related features.
Based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset, the device uses the full Android 9 operating system with support for 4G/5G.

It is expected that the release of the so-called EXODUS 5G Hub router will take place in Q2 this year. The router will reportedly also include the built-in hardware wallet to store private keys.
To control the full bitcoin node in the EXODUS 5G Hub, a hardware platform for managing keys of its own design HTC called Zion Vault will be used.
EXODUS 5G Hub will also support the ProtonMail email service, the Incognito decentralized VPN service, and the Brave browser.
