Theta (THETA)

Theta (THETA) is a cryptocurrency made by Mitch Liu and Jieyi Long in 2018. It is a decentralized blockchain-based content delivery platform that delivers high-bandwidth video streaming content.  

Theta intends on solving the problems that live video streaming faces today; low quality video streaming, high cost of streaming infrastructure, and centralized and inefficient ecosystems. The Theta project is solving these problems by delivering an innovative new blockchain-based content delivery network (CDN) that’s powered by users and decentralizes video streaming. 

Theta’s CDN allows viewers to earn Theta Fuel rewards for sharing bandwidth and resources. Theta Fuel (TFUEL) is gas for the Theta network and can be earned by staking THETA tokens and lending bandwidth to video streams. Theta’s peer-to-peer decentralized CDN delivers high quality, smooth video streaming throughout the world. Even more, it reduces the cost of delivering video streams so that video platforms no longer need to develop expensive infrastructure, allowing for innovative and unique business models to thrive.

Theta’s blockchain-based CDN is open source and open to all developers and partners to build on the Theta network. Currently, Theta’s live video streaming partners include Silver.TV, Samsung VR, and MBN, Korea’s largest business news outlet. The market that Theta intends on disrupting is absolutely massive. YouTube has 1 billion hours of streaming video watched daily, Twitch has between 2.2 and 3.2 million unique monthly visitors, and there is an estimated 400 million esports viewers who watch at least one tournament every year.

The Theta Token (THETA) has a total supply of 1,000,000,000 tokens and a circulating supply of 870,502,690 tokens. The initial supply breakdown is:

  • 30% private ICO investors
  • 22.5% Theta reserve
  • 15% Network seed/strategic partners
  • 7.5% Advisors
  • 25% Miner Reserve
