Solana Saga smartphone

In April, Solana introduced the Saga smartphone—a revolutionary device tailored specifically for the Solana ecosystem. With a built-in hardware wallet and a native store for decentralized applications (dapps), this smartphone represents the first step towards bringing crypto to a billion people. Decrypt labeled it as “polished and premium,” praising its intuitive Web3 integration despite some minor issues. However, the $1,000 price tag places it in a higher range compared to top-end offerings from brands like Apple and Samsung. Now sold out globally, even discounted prices around $600 wouldn’t grant you access to this sought-after phone.

Trezor Safe 3

As crypto exchange hacks continue to make headlines, more users are turning to cold storage solutions to safeguard their assets. Taking up the mantle is Trezor, a renowned crypto hardware wallet manufacturer. Trezor Safe 3 targets new entrants with its sophisticated design and user-friendly interface—resembling mainstream consumer electronics. This device ensures that your crypto holdings remain secure.

Muse Frame

Sharing your high-value NFT artwork with the world is a must. Muse Frame provides an impressive solution, particularly when it was utilized by London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery to showcase a collection of NFT artworks—a significant moment for the art world’s adoption of this new technology. Muse Frame offers sizes up to 55″, rotatable mounts, 4K displays, HD speakers, and an anti-glare screen. The smartphone app allows you to effortlessly swap your digital art with a simple swipe.

Trezor Keep Metal

Crypto hardware wallets can be susceptible to theft or damage. To ensure the safety of your mnemonic recovery seed, backing it up becomes essential. Enter Trezor Keep Metal—a newly launched product made from aerospace-grade stainless steel. This metal wallet provides durability, allowing you to safeguard your seed phrase from any potential threat. For added security, it can be sealed with a tamper-proof sticker.

Nike x RTFKT Dunk Ghost Edition and Dunk VOID Edition

Nike and its crypto subsidiary RTFKT have made a groundbreaking move with the RTFKT Dunk Genesis sneakers launch. Unlike previous drops that required users to buy an NFT to own the sneakers, this release breaks away from tradition. However, the sneakers are still tied to NFTs via an embedded near-field communication (NFC) chip, enabling users to obtain a digital collectible and link the product with its virtual counterpart. This strategic shift could signify Nike’s intent to expand its NFT offering beyond a niche group of crypto-savvy sneakerheads.

Vertu Metavertu II

Catering to the exact opposite end of the market compared to the Solana Saga smartphone, the Vertu Metavertu II offers a distinctly luxurious alternative. Initially, this Web3 smartphone might seem extravagant, priced at up to $9,300 and ensconced in alligator skin. However, targeting the new luxury consumer dominant among the crypto nouveau riche, Vertu has gone all-in on Web3 capabilities. The phone boasts an I-DID identity system, securing it with a user’s decentralized identifiers and creating a “passport to the Web3 world.” A separate parallel OS manages Web3 dapps, while a secure element chip adds signing and ZK-proof functionalities. While some features may currently outpace user adoption, Vertu remains ahead of the curve.

Meta Quest 3

With Meta’s claim to the term “metaverse,” the gaming industry responded by championing the idea of an “open metaverse” to counter Meta’s “walled garden” approach. Although decentralized metaverses and portability of virtual goods as NFTs are not yet a reality, Meta’s Quest 3 serves as the simplest way to experience the metaverse. Sold at an attractive price thanks to Meta’s deep pockets, the Quest 3 offers easy setup, top-notch specifications, including high-resolution displays and ample storage, and even mixed-reality features—an unprecedented addition to the Quest lineup of headsets.
