What Is Theta Fuel (TFUEL)?

Theta Fuel (TFUEL) is one of the two native tokens on the Theta blockchain. TFUEL should not be mistaken for Theta Token (THETA), which is the governance token of the Theta blockchain supported by thousands of community-run Guardian nodes and its Enterprise validators including Google, Binance, Blockchain ventures, Gumi and Samsung.

TFUEL is the second token on the Theta blockchain that serves as the utility token in decentralized video and data delivery, it also acts as a gas token. This means that it is used to power all operations on the Theta blockchain, like payments to relayers for sharing a video stream, for deploying and interacting with smart contracts, and as fees associated with transacting NFTs and DeFi applications.

In addition, it is also used to incentivize users in the ecosystem who share their redundant computing power as Edge Compute nodes as well as bandwidth resources as Edge Caching nodes for video streams and other data.

Who Are the Founders of Theta Fuel?

Theta Fuel, and in extension, the entire Theta Ecosystem, was co-founded by Mitch Liu and Jieyi Long in 2017. Liu has a long history in the gaming, video, and virtual reality industries, co-founding video advertising firm Tapjoy, mobile social gaming startup Gameview Studios, and THETA.tv, the live streaming platform whose DApp was the first to be built on the Theta protocol.

Jieyi Long is Theta’s second co-founder and CTO, following similar multi-year experience in design automation, gaming, VR, and large-scale distributed systems. He authored multiple peer-reviewed academic papers and holds various patents in video streaming, blockchain, and virtual reality.

Theta now has a modest team, and its official website lists strategic corporate investors as Samsung NEXT, Sony Innovation Fund, media investors BDMI Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments, CAA Creative Artists Agency, and traditional Silicon Valley VCs including DCM, Sierra Ventures, and the VR Fund.

What Makes Theta Fuel Unique?

Theta’s main use case is decentralizing video streaming, data delivery, and edge computing, making it more efficient, cost-effective, and fair for industry participants. The network runs on a native blockchain, with two native tokens, known as Theta (THETA) and Theta Fuel (TFUEL), powering the internal economy.

Theta’s appeal is threefold: viewers get rewarded with better quality streaming service, content creators improve their earnings and middlemen — video platforms — save money on building infrastructure and increase advertising, subscription revenues. Users have an incentive to both watch network content and share network resources, as rewards come in the form of TFUEL tokens.

The platform is open source, and token holders receive governance powers as with many proof-of-stake (PoS)-based blockchain ecosystems. In addition to video, data and computing, Theta caters to developers looking to launch decentralized applications (DApps) such as DeFi and NFTs on its fully featured EVM-compatible smart contract platform.

How Many Theta Fuel (TFUEL) Coins Are There in Circulation?

As earlier mentioned, there are two coins in the Theta ecosystem; THETA and TFUEL. Both coins are used as the main tools for interaction on the Theta blockchain, yet serve different functions.

There are currently 5,232,675,200 TFUEL coins in circulation, which grows each year as new TFUEL is generated for staking rewards. Theta Tokens are fixed and at their max supply, which means there are 1,000,000,000 coins in circulation which will never increase.

Theta runs on the proof-of-stake algorithm, which means staking is possible. Since the amount of THETA in circulation is the max supply there will ever be, TFUEL is the reward for staking on the network. To qualify for staking, you have to stake at least 1,000 THETA to a Guardian Node or run your own Guardian Node.

How Is the Theta Network Secured?

The Theta Blockchain relies on a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm. It, however, adds a multi-level Byzantine Fault Tolerance (BFT) consensus mechanism on its blockchain to achieve better security along with higher transaction throughput.

At the time of Theta Mainnet launch in March 2019, Theta introduced Guardian Nodes. With the Guardian Node, no single entity controls the majority of THETA tokens being staked at any one time. This further helps the network achieve a high transaction throughput of 1000+ TPS.

Theta uses a financial incentive scheme to ensure user participation in governance activities, and hence its network is secured by its own users.

Is Theta Fuel a Good Investment?

TFUEL is a very good long-term investment “1-4 years” and of course it’s a pretty good short-term investment for the current week

Introducing Theta Edgecast

Since the Theta network whitepaper was released in late 2017, their core thesis was to build a fully decentralized video infrastructure that would drive benefit to each key stakeholder in the video streaming value chain:

  1. End-users should be rewarded for sharing their excess bandwidth to relay video to others in the community
  2. Content creators should earn more for creating original content and free to choose whichever platform they like
  3. Video platforms should be able to lower CDN costs from using Theta’s peer-to-peer infrastructure, increase user engagement and ultimately revenues

To bring this vision to market, they believe that content creators and consumers should have the choice to use whichever video platform they feel they benefit the most from. This includes all existing advertiser-supported platforms such as YouTube, Twitch etc, subscription-based services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and many others, as well as new decentralized video platforms which are built from the ground-up on distributed computing and ledger technology.

They are excited to introduce Theta Edgecast, the first fully decentralized video streaming DApp that is 100% built on Theta’s native blockchain technology with smart contracts. This technology stack includes the ability to capture video, transcode it in real-time, cache and relay to users globally all through Theta’s peer-to-peer edge network composed of over 2000 edge nodes today. 

This means not a central server or service is used. This is a huge accomplishment and a huge challenge — they hope this open Beta will give you an opportunity to try it and provide us with valuable feedback.


Theta Edgecast is available in a completely redesigned Edge Node application, which now features the ability to broadcast streams on Edgecast or view other users’ Edgecast streams, as well as earn TFUEL via the Edge Caching and Edge Compute features.

The Edge Node now encompasses all aspects of decentralized video streaming, distribution, and compute in one streamlined app. If you already are running the Edge Node it will auto-update to the latest version, or you can download it here:

Windows: https://api.thetatoken.org/downloads/edge-node/windows

MacOS: https://api.thetatoken.org/downloads/edge-node/macos
