1-click staking is now live in the Theta Web Wallet! With this new feature, you can delegate your THETA to stake to community-run Guardian Nodes that have volunteered their nodes for use. 13 long-time Theta community members have already volunteered for their nodes to be whitelisted in the Theta Web Wallet, so you can earn TFUEL staking rewards easier than ever. We’re looking forward to new stakers pushing the Theta protocol staking percentage through 60% and higher with this new update!

Theta 1-click staking is available in the Theta Web Wallet to start, but will be added to the Theta…


As we march towards a June 30 release of Mainnet 3.0, a key protocol extension is the introduction of TFUEL burning where Elite Edge Nodes will burn at least 25% of each TFUEL payment to the network. In addition to this, network transaction fees and smart contract fees are also burned taking these TFUEL perpetually out of circulation.

In order to better align value with the transaction volume on Theta blockchain, a moderate increase in the gas fee on Theta protocol is necessary. Currently, the fees on Theta network are near zero, and after the proposed increase would still be…

It’s not a secret that Theta Labs has spent significant time exploring and driving blockchain technology discussions with large Global 1000 enterprises. These efforts have yielded results like bringing on-board Google, Sony and Samsung as Theta Enterprise validators, media companies like MGM and Lionsgate as content partners and Japan’s LINE corporation and Korea’s Kakao Klaytn as growth partners in Asia. However, the application of Theta’s blockchain technology in enterprises goes well beyond these examples. We see the evolving enterprise blockchain market really beginning to get traction beyond the early pilots.

Theta’s vision for this market goes far wider and deeper…

At Theta Labs we apologize for the delay of the first WPT ThetaDrop, originally scheduled for this past Sunday May 2.

Theta development team has been heads down on work for Theta Mainnet 3.0 for some months now, and great progress has been made toward the release of Elite Edge Nodes and TFUEL staking and burning on mainnet. However, to ensure the edge network functions efficiently as it scales to 100K+ Elite Edge Nodes and to incorporate some building blocks for our longer-term NFT vision, we decided that additional time to conduct a more thorough code review and testing was important.

Due to this, the Theta Mainnet 3.0 launch date will be moved from April 21st to June 30th, 2021. While…
