Blockchain Phone by Sirin Labs starts Shipping in December

Recommended Posts

Not sure if all of you have heard the news, but the company Sirin Labs has been saying they are going to release a blockchain phone early this year. A "Blockchain phone" merely means one that advances the user experience of decentralized apps (dapps) leveraging its hardware. They've apparently raised over $157 million for this project with an ICO they started in the beginning of 2018. They've partnered with a top electronic manufacturer, Foxconn to actually develop this device. The cost for this shiny new blockchain phone? $999 - So essentially the same price as the top of the line iPhones. 

If you're looking to buy one, you can preorder them right now IF you hold Sirin Tokens (SRN). These are the ones provided for the ICO they launched. In terms of launch date, there isn't a definitive date just yet but they've released that it will ship this December. There's quite a bit more information regarding this phone that I decided to leave out since I didn't want to make this post too wordy. If you'd like to read more about the Blockchain phone by Sirin Labs, check out the source link here:

Im also seeing you posted back at November 30th 2018, where this News says Phone will be released in late December 2018?

Price is a little bit too high lol .  Blockchain based smarthphone could bring all variety of decentralized apps and better security.

News is kinda old. Is it released? Any updates?

Yep - They're on sale right now for $899 directly from Sirin Labs - https://shop.sirinlabs.com/products/finney

The coolest feature for such devices would be DApp (decentralized application) compatibility, which is essentially like an app store for the pertaining coin (for example ETH has DApp compatibility). That and the obvious integrated hardware wallet feature, although I'm not sure how that works with a mobile device with internet connection since a hard wallet would need to be air gapped for it to actually be considered a true hardware wallet rather than a device with software installed on it. I would imagine it would work something along the lines of where the phone would automatically turn data off when you are accessing the wallet, and only turning it on the broadcast a send transaction after closing the wallet out. 

Apparently they did a pretty good job on the phone from what I gather, and it comes with an easy to use interface. Here's a review so you can be the judge of that:

I wonder how well this phone will sell to the public. It's either going to sell really well or be a total bust.

Most likely - Apparently its picking up pretty good acceptance so far but its too early to tell. They have flagship stores opening in two countries apparently where you can try the phone out and learn about it. Forgot off the top of my head which two countries, but it in the review article I posted above.

As for me, this is utter nonsense. After all, you can download the blockchain application as well. Why pay for some software? In chkorom time and so all companies iphone and samsung

It's sounds promising.  Read the preview and I think those guys are far ahead of the markets.  But it snake showing us what the future could offer.  

But at this price  I won't be a buyer. Maybe in 2 or 3 gen they'll create a great product. 

Anyway it's really interesting and I'll be looking forward to see how it can evolve. 

Thanks for sharing
