Soon after, Phantom also announced on Nov.9 that they are preparing to launch a mobile version of their wallet in January, for which they will conduct a private beta launch during the holidays this year. The wallet surpassed 1 million active users on Nov. 6, as revealed on the wallet’s official Twitter page.

“We think that opening up the Solana ecosystem to mobile users will be a game-changer for adoption. More and more crypto users are becoming mobile-first every year, and we believe that making the Solana experience easy for these users is key to continuing its explosive growth,” mentioned Filip Dragoslavic, co-founder of SolFlare, in a statement

However, this is not the first time SOL tokens can be transacted on a mobile phone, nearly all major exchanges allow for SOL tokens to be sent, traded, and staked with mobile phones. The introduction of mobile wallets to the mix allows users to have direct control of their coins and keys as these wallets are non-custodial in nature.
