  • The OnePlus blockchain survey has been posted in the company’s community app.
  • Questions in the survey hint that OnePlus is exploring the possibility of launching its own cryptocurrency wallet.
  • OnePlus’ survey tries to understand what cryptocurrency users use, the problems they face and how often they trade in crypto, among other things.
Smartphone maker OnePlus is surveying its users about blockchain technology and by extension, the need for a cryptocurrency wallet. The survey revolves around cryptocurrencies and whether OnePlus users use or have used popular cryptocurrency wallets like Coinbase, Binance among others.

The survey, first spotted by MySmartPrice, contains a list of questions asking users if they have invested in any type of cryptocurrency, their anonymous demographic details and more.

This could be a hint at OnePlus entering the blockchain/cryptocurrency space, even if it’s in the form of a wallet to store all your cryptocurrency purchases. Given that cryptocurrencies have exploded in popularity in India – OnePlus’ biggest market – and in other parts of the world, it might make some sense for the company to dip its toes in this space.

Essentially, the survey revolves around what cryptocurrency users use, how often they invest or trade in crypto, the ease of use and security. The company has also posed questions about non-fungible tokens (NFT).

These questions seem essential from the point of view of designing a product, which suggests that OnePlus is indeed exploring the need and value of creating its own cryptocurrency wallet.

Business Insider has reached out to OnePlus for a comment. We will update this story as and when we receive a response.

HTC went a step further and launched its dedicated cryptocurrency phone called the Exodus.

It remains to be seen if the OnePlus cryptocurrency wallet becomes a reality in the near future.
