Timeline Of HTC In the Crypto Space
HTC’s interest in crypto tech dates back to 2018 when it produced the Exodus 1 smartphone, which had an in-built crypto hardware wallet and a full bitcoin node. Then several smaller Exodus 1s followed.
However, HTC shifted focus to its Vive VR headsets, giving space for smartphone rivals. Regardless, Desire 22 Pro will be the first metaverse smartphone if the product is available before HTC rivals catch up.
