Taiwenese electronics giant HTC has announced the Exodus 5G Hub, a crypto focused model that will leverage Zion software to deliver a private and secure environment for blockchain enthusiasts. This portable 5G blockchain router enables users to run a full bitcoin node.

The first 5G hotspots has been created by HTC with a portable router with full Android 9 operating system and 4G/5G-backed Wi-Fi services, running on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 chipset.

The Hub basically provides 5G connectivity and uses Zion Vault software, enabling users to store Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum including ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens, Litecoin (LTC), BNB, and Stellar Lumens (XLM).

The software also offers social recovery for private keys and ability to secure the Bitcoin network by recording and verifying transactions.

“You are now verifying the cloud servers, rather than them verifying you. It is a complete power shift from the status quo,” the firm said.

The device is also packed with apps that are privacy-focused such as decentralized ad-blocking app VPN incognito, Brave Browser, and end-to-end encrypted email service protonMail.

HTC claims its latest device to be more private than Amazon Alexa and “the ultimate safeguard against the collection of data by big tech companies in your home.”

“Exodus is about ownership. Owning your keys, owning your data, owning your privacy,” said Phil Chen, decentralized chief officer at HTC. “Exodus is the shield against the onslaught of big tech and its assault on the privacy of your home. By using the Exodus 5G Hub, you have more control and ownership of your data than ever before.”

The Exodus 5G Hub has the same HTC hardware peice as previously released and has the same older X50 5G modem, meaning it isn’t the fastest possible 5G connection.

The specs of the device include 4GB of memory, a microSD slot, a nano SIM slot, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and.a 7,660mAh battery.

Scheduled for a mid-year launch, there is no price tag on this device yet, the original HTC Hub was a $600 purchase.
