Huobi Prime to Launch Whole Network on September 11
Huobi cryptocurrency exchange is slated to launch NODE, the native digital token of Whole Network and its blockchain-enabled smartphone, Acute Angle, on September 11, 2019. Per the press release, Huobi Token (HT) holders will be able to purchase the phone with just $515 worth of HT.
Huobi to Launch NODE
As stated in its press release, Huobi Global is collaborating with Whole Networks to launch NODE, a cryptocurrency that will essentially enable HT holders to buy their own Acute Angle phones.
The team plans to officially unveil the digital token on September 11, 2019. Interestingly, on the same day, NODE will be listed on Huobi Prime and users will be able to purchase the highly functional blockchain and Android-based phone with Huobi Token.
Commenting on the impending launch of Acute Angle, Livio Weng, CEO of Huobi Global noted that the company firmly believes that blockchain phones will play an important role in the broader adoption of the nascent technology.
“As the industry develops and as innovations like 5G become increasingly integrated into our telecommunications systems, we believe more and more crypto communities will be interested in trading and transacting on mobile devices. This move is our first step to meet those users’ needs,”
Intricate Features of Acute Angle
At just $515, the team says the Acute Angle blockchain phone is built with crypto traders in mind and it comes with several exciting features that differentiate it from other blockchain smartphones from competitors like Sirin Labs, Samsung, and HTC.
Acute Angle comes with a programmable notification system that alerts the user when certain crypto price movements occur, even when the phone is locked.
That’s not all, it also features an in-built crypto wallet app, a wide range of pre-installed blockchain apps, a dedicated blockchain app store loaded with decentralized applications (dApps) and users will receive NODE token airdrops when they use the phone or interact with the crypto community.
Interestingly, the Whole Network team has hinted that future versions of the Acute Angle blockchain phone will support 5G network connection plus other functions.
Huobi remains one of the major crypto exchanges dedicated to fostering broader adoption of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
Earlier in August 2019, BTCManager informed that Huobi had integrated MakerDAO and Compound Protocol in a bid to promote decentralized finance (DeFi).
