One of the attributes of blockchain technology is that it presents us, with watertight security measures that is, almost impossible to modify.
It permanently records and rubber stamps every transaction carried out on it. This, invariably, gives us a sense of security and reliability in anything we do, regarding the blockchain.
Some manufacturers of mobile phones have taken the phone technology, a bit further, by incorporating the blockchain application into a mobile phone.
The blockchain smartphones are, basically, phones that are designed, with enhanced security measures, to protect private keys, cryptocurrencies, giving users, more flexible ability, to mine crypto and run bitcoin nodes, all from their mobile phones.
Blockchain phones vary, but one connecting factor is that, they all bring the blockchain technology, closer to humans and provides, top security measures that the average smartphones, (Androids, or, iPhones), cannot match, for now.
