Pundi X Makes The “First Blockchain Phone Call” Via The XPhone After Launching POS Devices For Easy Crypto Payments
Pundi X launched a POS device earlier this year with the primary goal of making crypto payments easier on the go.
Now, the startup claims they made the very first blockchain phone call.
This was announced in the company co-founder Pitt Huang’s Medium post just recently.
The call was made on the startup’s newest device which is called the XPhone during the ongoing XBlockchain Summit two-day event at the Inaya Putri, Bali.
What is the XPhone?
The XPhone is a blockchain phone that does not use any centralized mobile carrier in order to function. The phone basically runs on the Function X blockchain created by Pundi X.
The Function X blockchain is an in-house network that has been developed by the team working at Pundi X in order to resolve some issues which are common with blockchain platforms.
These include scalability, easy publishing of DApps, and decentralizing the Internet.
A truly decentralized solution
Huang says that the new blockchain function includes five components to make it a decentralized solution.
These include “Function X OS, Function X Blockchain, Function X IPFS, FXTP Protocol, and the Function X Docker. All five have one sole purpose which is to decentralize all apps, website, communications and data,” according to the Medium blog post.
The same blog post says that users will have the ability to share data in the same way as they do online, securely via the blockchain and developers will be able to quickly and easily publish DApps via FXTP.
Users will also enjoy the ability to access their public data going through a particular path that is similar to what we usually type on our computers when we are visiting a website online.
The user’s photos, files, and websites can only be accessed via this path.
Users will also be able to call, text, or email the XPhone by using pre-defined commands.
Pundi X claimed that the data shared on the blockchain runs on a complex exchange of both public and private data keys which will make sure to guarantee communication without any interruption.
