KaratGold Coin’s IMpulse K1: the new standard in blockchain-powered tech
In 2018 many Tier 1 companies tried to hop onto the blockchain bandwagon. Big players like HTC and Samsung announced their plans to produce new blockchain-powered Android phones. Being mainly focused on the crypto-side of the handsets, the tech giants promised adding support for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and other currencies to their devices. HTC envisioned a native blockchain network that used Exodus phones as nodes to support crypto-trading between users while Samsung just added a crypto-wallet and with a bunch of decentralized apps to their latest Galaxy flagman, not go beyond that. As a result, the community had heavily criticized the efforts with many expert even calling the phones’ connection to blockchain as misleading: https://www.androidheadlines.com/2018/10/htc-exodus-blockchain-misleading.html
And this is where the next competitor comes forward: KaratGold Coin (KBC). This isn’t the first time when this German team makes the headlines of world’s top media: they have previously launched the token tied to physical gold and made a huge bombshell of it gaining huge popularity, especially on the Asian market. This time the Stuttgart-based company has revealed their plans to finally give users what they ask for: an ultra-secure smartphone build for those who value their privacy.
With the IMpulse K1 Phone, voice or text messages are sent peer-to-peer and end-to-end enciphered, that minimizes any third-party intervention. A brand new VoBP protocol, Peer-to-Peer Banking, IPFS Storage, Matrix ID — the handset has all to ensure the user’s data and private information stays as secure as it is possible in 2019.
The phone comes in three finishes: Gold Transparent, Black Carbon and Pixel Army. All models are equipped with 5.5″ AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, octa core CPU, 3400 mAh battery, dual nano SIM and two cameras (5 MP front and 12 MP rear). IMpulse K1 smartphones run blockchainData™ O.S., a Linux-based operation system compatible with all modern Android apps.
IMpulse K1 Phones are a part of a large K-Universe – the ecosystem of interconnected products and services for instant cross-border value transfers in the new blockchain-based economy. The global infrastructure that will become a bridge between conventional and blockchain-powered financial systems is built around KaratGold Coin, Karat’s own cryptocurrency. John McAfee stated in his Twitter: “KBC coin is linked to gold in a way that downside is limited, while upside is unlimited.”
The Karatbars team lead by Harald Seiz, internationally recognized entrepreneur, public speaker and book author, has already released a number of products including K-Merchant – a platform for online vendors that allows accepting payments in Bitcoin and Ethereum, KaratBit – a high-performance cryptocurrency exchange, KaratPay, CashGold and many more.
