Theta Edge Node Updates


Theta Edge Node Updates

 

In the event that you missed it Theta has been rolling out auto-updates to Edge node Client software.

For example, on Thursday of this week my Edge node was updated from V3.2.2 to V3.3.12.

What has Theta added? Theta Video API (TVA) - for video encoding jobs. And is more decentralized!

What did Theta remove?

  • The time/date stamps for these jobs is no longer shown (Kind of a bummer as I always like to see how busy (or not) my node is. I need to know if its worth running the node vs electric costs!
  • Folding at Home (FoH) feature (This is where I picked up quite a bit of video encoding jobs - no longer an option)
  • No more earnings for Edge job just running through out the day
  • Seems the job payouts are much much lower

 

Not sure how Theta will handle failed jobs, I point this out as my Edge node already has one failed job. Would be nice if Theta support would monitor and fix the failed jobs and allow them to be rerun for potential earnings.

Summary - just a quick review of the new feature and some removed features from Theta Edge Node.
