In addition to the built-in wallet, the Android smartphone is equipped with a push-notification function for trading transactions. In addition, a cold wallet plugin can be added to the device separately.

Acute Angle is much cheaper than other blockchain smartphones – its price is $ 515, while, for example, a Finney device from Sirin Labs costs about $ 1,000. Acute Angle can also be purchased for native tokens of the Huobi exchange.

“We think blockchain phones are a promising area for future blockchain industry development. As the industry develops and as innovations like 5G become increasingly integrated into our telecommunications systems, we believe more and more crypto communities will want to trade and transact from mobile devices.”
