The First Blockchain Smartphone for the US is Here
Kristin Houser, May 3, 2018

A hip-hop legend is asking people to trade in their iPhones and Galaxies for a new type of smartphone. One that runs on the blockchain.

On Wednesday, artist/humanitarian Pras Michel launched Blacture — a platform designed to give “both voice and access” to the black community — during a keynote speech at the University of Pittsburgh. Blacture’s most unique initiative seems to be the Motif, the first blockchain-based smartphone intended for the U.S. market.

The Motif doesn’t look all that different from your typical smartphone. But just like you learned in elementary school, it’s what on the inside that counts. And the Motif contains the Zippie operating system(OS).

Created by blockchain and mobile tech company Zippie, this OS automatically rewards users with tokens whenever they use their Motif phones for activities like buying things online, agreeing to share their personal data (it’s not yet clear what data, or with whom), or making the exceedingly vague endeavor to “offer products and services” to the Blacture community.

The tokens go into the Motif’s secure digital wallet. The user can then spend the tokens using a special Motif debit card, which works anywhere traditional debit cards work. No special bank account required.

The Motif should be on the market this fall and will cost between $350 and $395.

According to the press release, the card makes it easy to transfer money anywhere in the world without extra charges, which “serves as part of Blacture’s mission to uplift the Black community through economic empowerment.”
