World’s First Block Chain Phone Has a Sliding Crypto Wallet
Sirin Finney – The world's first blockchain phone is finally available to purchase for customers. The phone, developed by Sirin labs, has a cryptocurrency wallet that is a secondary screen which slides out from the back of the device.
The Finney was first unveiled in September 2017 and the prices and specifications were revealed in May this year. It has been launched for a price of $1,000. Those who pre-ordered the thing get a $100 discount.
Finney features a 6-inch FHD+ screen with a 2160x1080p resolution and a 18:9 aspect ratio.
The phone features a 12-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. The phone also uses an 'Ultra Secure' fingerprint censor and Google certified fork of Android.
However, the phone's cold storage cryptocurrency wallet makes it unique. The interesting bit here is that the cryptocurrency wallet is not connected to the internet, in order to prevent hackers from gaining access to your bitcoins and securely generate transactions.
