Theta Network is a leading blockchain project that seeks to change the online video delivery industry. It is changing it by disrupting how videos are stored and accessed by users globally.
The concept behind Theta is relatively simple. Instead of storing videos in centralised servers, the network allows ordinary people to share their free bandwidth and then earn rewards depending on their storage capacity.
Theta does not seek to disrupt companies like YouTube and Vimeo. Instead, it aims to change how these firms store their data. In fact, Google is one of the platform’s enterprise node operators. Others are Binance, Sony, and Sierra Ventures among others.
Theta Network is also a leading player in the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) industry. The developers launched Tdrop earlier this year. Tdrop is a blockchain that enables users to mint and buy NFTs through a few simple steps.
The NFT industry has come under intense pressure in the past few weeks as demand for these products slip. Data published by this week revealed that the volume of NFTs sold in July were worth about $600 million. That was substantially lower than the $6 billion that were traded in January.
