11 October this year, during the two-day XBlockchain Summit event at Inaya Putri in Bali, Pundi X made a historic event in the world of telecommunications. She made the world's first phone call in Blockchain technology using the Pundi XPhone. But from the beginning ...
Pundi XPhone based on Blockchain
Pundi XPhonebecause that's what the company's latest device is called Pundi Xis a block phone that does not use any centralized mobile operator for operation. This phone operates on independent X function blocks created by the above company. A network developed by the Pundi team, named Blockchain Function X, was created to solve problems encountered on existing platforms blockchain (Internet decentralization, scalability or easy publishing of decentralized applications).
Like technology blockchainon which the telephone is based, the Pundi X product is safe and private. Users can make calls or send messages via blockchain via this telephone. As a result, the need for telephone numbers or any identifiers is eliminated. Every phone in the Blockchain Function X ecosystem will act as a network node, and each user will have their own unique address, similar to those of traditional URLs or IP addresses.
Blockchain Function X is not just a public chain. It is a completely decentralized platform and consists of five basic pillars:
- X OS function;
- X Blockchain function;
- X IPFS function;
- FXTP protocol;
- X Docker function.
Each of them has one goal: to decentralize all applications, websites, communications and data.
The developers declare that the X operating system is based on the Android OS 9.0. This automatically creates a list of advantages associated with the use of the new phone. Such a solution makes Pundi XPhone compatible with Android applications, which makes it easier for programmers and users to 'transition' to the platform. In addition, as the creators declare, new dApps files (decentralized applications) will also be easier to create and publish.
As declared by Pitt Huang-CTO and co-founder of Pundi X:
,,Users will be able to share data in the same way that they do it online securely via blockchain, and developers can quickly and easily publish decentralized applications via FXTP. "
Users will be able to access their data by going through a specific path similar to the one we pass on our computers when visiting the site. The path changes as follows: "FXTP: //xxx.xyz" where xyz will mean 'network node', meaning nothing else as the username. In the same way, you can send messages or make calls. In this case, however, the content of the predefined commands will be different, which will sound accordingly. "call.xyz"For calls and"message.xyz '' or "mail.xyz"For a message or an email. Regardless of whether you want to share photos, data, files or websites - you can get it all through this path.
The creators of the system argue that the data made available in the block chain operate on the principle of a 'complex exchange' of both public and private data keys and encryption, which guarantees users 'communication without interception' and direct access to data shared by others. Each piece of data sent via the Blockchain Function X platform will also be saved in the chain. 'This is how the decentralized communication system works - says Pitt Huang.
Not just Pundi X?
System XPhone is currently available for smartphone manufacturers and is in the testing phase. Platform creators declare that Blockchain Function X, FXTP, IPFS, and XPhone will be officially launched in the second quarter of the next year. As it turns out, the tycoon in the world of cryptocurrency is not the only player on the arena of decentralized communication systems. Currently, the initiator of cryptocurrencies Sirin Labs or a less known company Sikur working on the concept of a blockchain phone.
But it is not everything.
Pundi XPhone will also have to compete with several 'representatives' of international telecommunications giants, including the company HTC. Taiwanese company sees huge potential in safe personal communication devices and plans to release a phone based on the platform before the end of this year blockchain - HTC Exodus.
"A few years later, we see a world where people have their own identity and data, where everyone understands the concept and economics of digital property.".- says the decentralized chief officer of HTC Phil chen.
On the way to decentralization
The assumption of the Pundi X company and its latest product is the decentralization of all applications, websites or communications. And although smartphones that use the capabilities of blockchain systems are still a new topic, it is definitely a direction with great potential for development.
Will Pundi X and their XPhone become potentates in the block phone market?
Will they have to give way to more recognizable telecommunications brands such as HTC?
