With Blockchain and Bitcoin fast becoming the latest fad all around the world, it was only logical that someone invented a blockchain smartphone sooner or later.

Enter BitVault, the world's first crypto communicator and blockchain smartphone. The BitVault is a revolutionary new product that is built around security and privacy enabled through blockchain technology.

BitVault is owned and developed by Embedded Downloads, which is considered somewhat of a pro in secure hardware and software relating to the Internet of Things. The firm, which has development offices in Limerick, Ireland and New Delhi, India, has commissioned Gurgaon-headquartered VVDN Technologies as the development and manufacturing partner for the blockchain smartphone.

Showcased earlier this year at London Fintech week, Embedded Downloads will start shipping the phone in November this year.

The phone comes loaded with a lot of unique features:

Secure Calling: The phone makes use of advanced cryptography to allow public key to public key calling. Cryptocurrency transactions are employed to create multi-layer encryptions. This provides the users of BitVault with the safest calling feature that there is.

Secure Messaging: The smartphone uses the same cryptography method for secure messaging as it uses for secure calling. BitVault to BitVault messaging is multi-layered encrypted, which makes it the best and safest in the world.

Dynamic Key Creation: BitVault makes use of biometric identification along with NFC technology, meaning the user using the smartphone end up creating private and public keys every time the device is used. These dynamic keys are used for encryption of communication, transactions and the other apps present on the smartphone.

Secure Browsing: The smartphone makes use of blockchain technology that is responsible for verifying the websites on the phone through a set of confirmation steps. Here's a little warning, browsing with the BitVault smartphone is a little restricted and controlled with stringent rules. This is done so as to ensure the integrity of the environment that the phone is meant for.

Secure Document Transfer: Documents that are sent via the phone as an attachment are transferred over a private blockchain separate from the BitVault communication environment. This means, both the sender and receiver of the document will have to download an application on their respective computers in order to send or receive documents. In order to open these documents, special keys are required, which are securely sent BitVault to BitVault. This way, the phone ensures that no outside every makes it way into the communication envious of BitValut, and that it always remains free of malware.

Application Store: Want to know the best attraction of BitVault, it comes with its very own BitVault Application Store. The Blockchain smartphone makes use of a modified version Android but unfortunately standard Android applications cannot be uploaded onto the phone. Though open to outside developers, BitVault developers will have to be licensed. All the licensed one will receive a developer toolkit so as to kickstart their BitVault app development.

Cryptocurrency wallets: As expected, the blockchain smartphone will be using
cryptocurrency in all its applications. It also comes with native cryptocurrency wallets pre-installed: - Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, EOT.

You can pre-order the BitVault here. Starting November, the phone will be shipped worldwide with door to door secure courier.
