After several months of waiting, Sirin Labs finally announced to the public that it is now possible to buy its long-awaited Finney Phone, a mobile device with which they intend to earn a place in the mobile industry by offering a series of features designed explicitly for crypto users.

From the technological point of view, the Finney phone has a set of characteristics that make it unique in the market. The phone has an integrated hardware wallet that runs independently of the software, allowing users to comfortably have the security of a cold wallet in the comfort of a cell phone.
The phone is not particularly cheap. It is priced at $999, placing it in direct competition with high-end cell phones, but the target audience is very specific. Finney promotes their phone as a “State-of-the-art Smartphone for the blockchain era,” and since the announcement of the Project, they managed to raise 157 Million dollars in what was the fourth largest ICO so far.
