The world’s first privacy-focused smartphone equipped with a blockchain OS is taking reservations

Most of the personal information we use is nowadays on our smartphones. When you make a call, the telecommunications company records where you call, and when you send a message, they record who you interact with. And in the worst case, even eavesdropping.

In order to counter such a mechanism, the world’s first blockchain smartphone “Block On Block (BOB)” will appear.

The BOB incorporates an OS that works with the blockchain called Function X, and the BOB itself acts as a blockchain node. BOBs distributed network handle calls, messages, Internet access, etc., so that the privacy of users can be protected without collecting personal information in an organization that processes data centrally.
