Blockchain smartphones are a special category of smartphones aimed at a few. HTC has been active in this area lately, whose recent creation, HTC Exodus 1s, is not performing as well as it should.
The company has launched the Exodus 1s as a smartphone blockchain that can does mining even when charging. Although this is a special feature, it seems that it does not help at all in the performance of the smartphone.
Tests and disappointing results
HTC Exodus 1s can do mine Monero cryptocurrency as it charges or is in idle mode. Users will be able to take advantage of this feature using the DeMiner application which is constantly running in the background and allows the smartphone to continue mining.
The app will be released sometime by the end of June, and according to tests conducted by Midas Lab, which developed the app, Exodus 1s can make mine Monero worth $ 0.0038 per day. This translates to US $ 1,387 per year.
The HTC Exodus 1s costs US $ 237, which means that in order for someone to depreciate the money they invested in the smartphone they have to do mining 24/7 for about 171 years.
Of course, it is worth noting that the ability of Exodus 1s to make mine is secondary feature of. The company sells the smartphone as a powerful smartphone that has the ability to make mine cryptocurrencies.
However, tests have shown that mining with the HTC Exodus 1s is not going to bring any big profits.
