But here's the interesting thing: Although HTC is the first major brand to announce a phone based around the blockchain technology that makes Bitcoin and cryptocurrency red-hot, the first phone that CryptoKitties will come to isn't a "cryto" phone.

CryptoKitties, the virtual cat breeding game that became so popular it clogged the ethereum network, is to roll out a version for mobile devices through a partnership with Taiwanese phone maker HTC.

"In the new internet age people are generally more conscious about their data, this a flawless opportunity to empower the user to start owning their digital identity", said HTC chief crypto officer Phil Chen. "Our vision is to expand the blockchain ecosystem by creating the world's first phone dedicated to decentralised applications and security".

"I want to say it will be available definitely everywhere outside of China", the executive further clarifies. On why China isn't on the list of countries for the new smartphone, Chen remarked that it is due to different rules and regulations in the country.

Will this be the mass-market phone that will save HTC and bring it back to its glory?

By working with Animoca (the distributor of Cryptokitties) and Bitmark ("the crypto-based digital ownership project"), HTC will be able to further its advancements into the crypto world.
