Up Network, a team connecting mobile devices to blockchain technology, is unveiling ‘Up Mobile,’ the first smartphone offering the advantages of both innovative artificial intelligence and blockchain technology, built on the Facebook-created Move programming language.

The smartphone aims to provide pioneering levels of user experience security and privacy — making Web3 accessible to everyone. The blockchain technology underpinning the network will be provided by Movement Labs, a team dedicated to the adoption of the Move programming language, which raised a $38M Series A earlier this year.

UP Network is led by Co-Founder Roy Liu, who spearheaded the integration of TRON into Samsung’s mobile phones in 2019. Liu is supported by a team with significant experience in both web2 and web3 technology.

“Every Web3 user is using an Apple or Google smartphone, but most Web3 apps are banned or handicapped due to the unfriendly terms on Apple’s AppStore and Google’s Play Store. We need a smartphone that offers a Web3 first user experience and an ecosystem that supports innovation and distribution.” says Liu. “Finally 2024 brings more public readiness and we are equipped with all the necessary tools and acceptance. Our strategic partnership with Movement Labs is set to revolutionize this space, making Web3 accessible to everyone, marking an era of consumer web3 revolution.”

The collaboration with Movement Labs enables a series of unparalleled usability advantages. Movement’s AI-powered execution layer is designed to handle high-demand periods, enabling immense scalability — something traditionally seen as a barrier to blockchain adoption.

The use of artificial intelligence is prominent throughout the device’s design. AI algorithms are employed to process and create unique digital identifiers using facial recognition and fingerprint data, ensuring that each user can only register once. However, using ‘zero-knowledge proof’ technology, identity is proven without revealing any of the biometric data.

Furthermore, local large language models (LLMs) are integrated into the OS, offering assistance to users for day-to-day tasks, such as booking a dinner date or keeping a shopping list. All these processes are private and local to the device, making them far more reliable solutions than standard cloud-based practices.

Up Network has received over 10,000 requests for its Up Mobile smartphone from various communities during the stealth period, with demand growing. With over 50 ecosystem partners onboarded, Up Network expects to close 2024 with 100,000 units sold.

Up Network is a Web3 abstraction layer connecting mobile devices and blockchain technology. Building a mobile blockchain powered by  infrastructure from Movement Labs, the Up Network ecosystem consists of the application abstraction layer and the ZK Proof identity layer for EVM and MoveVM, operating and validating on its flagship Web3 smartphone, Up Mobile.
