When Cryptoverse Meets Metaverse

The term 'metaverse' has been creating a buzz in the world in the last few months, Google search analysis shows that the term 'Metaverse' had a search score of less than 1 in 2020 which grew to 99 in 2022.  At the end of 2021 we also witnessed Facebook change its name to Meta , but its not only Facebook that is focused on the metaverse and its infrastructure, a bunch of tech companies are in the race for the metaverse (Nvidia, Unity, Roblox, Snap etc.) A recent report published by Technavio called, 'Metaverse Market in Finance by Component & Geography Forecast and Analysis 2022-2026' stated that the metaverse market will increase by $50.37bn during 2022-2026.  Another research company, Grand View Research , headquartered in San Francisco expects the global metaverse market size to grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 39.4 from 2022 to 2030 But what exactly is the metaverse?

Introduction to Theta Network & The Theta Token

OVERVIEW


I have been seeing questions around the Theta Network on whether Theta Token is a good one to invest it? Let's dwell into the Theta Network to find out.

Steaming applications have picked up a lot of steam in recent years .e.g. Twitch, Netflix & YouTube. The global video streaming market was valued at $50.11 billion in 2020 with an expected exponential compounded growth of 21% from 2021 to 2028. The industry is growing rapidly with number of individuals jumping on board to get a piece of it.

However with the ever growing streaming demand and HD quality preference the current streaming system is shrouded with a bunch of problems:
  • Poor Quality Streaming: The current content delivery network lacks reach, causing video re-buffering and high load times in many parts of the world especially the developing nations
  • Higher Definition Data Needs: Demand for 4K, 8K and higher quality stream is increasing which the current system is not able to sustain or provide
  • Centralized & Inefficient System: Centralized nature means less revenue flow back to content creators and platforms
The solutions? A decentralized peer-to-peer video delivery solution powered by the users. 

What are the benefits of this solution you ask?

  • Higher quality & smoother video streaming
  • Reduced cost of delivering video streams resulting in lower infrastructure cost in-turn driving more innovation and unique business models
  • Viewers get a chance to earn rewards as Theta Fuel for sharing excess bandwidth and resources

FUTURE OF THETA NETWORK & THETA TOKEN

The Theta Network is led a by strong leadership team with a number of successful start ups under their belt. Not only that, one of their media advisors is Steve Chen the co-founder of YouTube.

Theta has a bunch of big shot investors on their portfolio .e.g. Samsung & Sony innovation fund raising $17 million in venture financing. 

With over 2 million current users and 300,000 users in 149 countries using Theta Network to stream within three weeks of its launch has helped Theta position itself as an industry leader. Furthermore to strengthen its strong hold in the streaming blockchain, Theta has managed to secure US patent for 'Method and systems for peer discovery in a decentralized data streaming and delivery network'

With experienced leadership, strong userbase, secured financing & well known industry partners like Samsung VR, Theta Network seems to be set up for future success and growth. Theta Network could definitely be in the top ten cryptocurrencies to invest in.

The Theta Token, native currency of the Theta Network is trading at US$9.59 as of the day end on 24th April 2021.
