Cryptocurrency and smartphones are married to each other whether we like it or not. One is the first successfully implemented form of digital hard money and the other is a mini-supercomputer in your pocket. It makes sense why two futuristic technologies would eventually join hands.
The seamless integration of crypto into smartphones is exactly what the SIKURPhone (read: Secure Phone) is all about. Although we have told you about crypto-supported smartphones before, none of them have been as innovative as the SIKURPhone (neither have they been so badly named.)
This device is a successor to the 2016 GranitePhone – the supposed world’s most secure smartphone. But this time, there’s a crypto twist in the mix.
The company embraced the blockchain trends and added advanced crypto functionality into the device by integrating a cold storage wallet. So you can keep all your cryptocurrency on the phone and carry it with you wherever you want. With this you can track your current balance, store currencies on SIKUR’s cloud, check the pricing for different cryptocurrencies, or read the crypto-related news in a special newsfeed space.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why would anyone want to store sensitive financial data on a smartphone, a device that’s usually so prone to being hacked or misplaced? Well, that brings us to the extensive security that the SIKURPhone has in it:
The Unhackable Phone
The company gave their devices to HackerOne, a company that is famous for testing vulnerabilities in software, to see if they could expose any problems and hack the device. Long story short, they tried for 2 months and failed. That should tell you just how secure your crypto-monies are going to be!
Other than that, the device has advanced remote wipe features so in the event that you lose your SIKURPhone or it gets stolen, you can completely remove any traces of your information from it, thus protecting your cryptocurrency.
