Decentraland to Debut on HTC EXODUS 1
Decentraland is working with HTC to offer the Decentraland Marketplace on the EXODUS 1, the world’s first blockchain-enabled phone
Today, we are extremely excited to announce that Decentraland will debut on the HTC EXODUS 1, an industry leader in blockchain mobile devices.
Decentraland and the Exodus team are collaborating to bring the Decentraland ecosystem to the EXODUS 1, the world’s first native blockchain smartphone. This means that all of your Decentraland assets can be securely stored in the Zion Vault, the all-in-one private vault on the blockchain.
Store, access, and manage your Decentraland assets - all in one place
Both HTC Exodus and Decentraland are committed to redefining the way people manage their identities, privacy, cryptocurrencies, and other virtual possessions online.
By storing private keys directly on the phone’s hardware, Exodus allows users to secure their Decentraland identities, data, and assets directly in their pocket - totally cutting out the middleman. Decentraland’s LAND (the ERC-721 virtual real estate that makes up Genesis City) and MANA (our Ethereum-based cryptocurrency) will both be supported by the Zion Vault.
Decentraland is rapidly approaching the launch of its drag-and-drop scene editor (The Builder), and the beta release of its virtual world, introducing some of the most tangible use-cases of blockchain tech.
Soon, you’ll be able to browse, buy, sell, and manage your LAND directly from the EXODUS 1, without having to bother with third-party extensions.
Dive into Decentraland with the Creator Contest!
Next month, Decentraland is unveiling The Builder, it’s the first drag-and-drop scene editor to make it easier than ever for people to design and build the unique 3D environments that make up Decentraland’s virtual world
In celebration of the Builder’s release, anyone can show off their world-building skills through the Creator Contest, a 2 week competition offering Exodus phone, Decentraland’s cryptocurrency (MANA) and LAND, Decentraland’s virtual real estate, as prizes.
You don’t have to own any LAND in order to compete, just sign up at contest.decentraland.org. After the competition starts on March 18th, you’ll have two weeks to design your scenes and submit them for our panel of expert judges to review. We’re collaborating with some of the finest minds in creative and artistic direction from the gaming and film industry!
