Jan 5 · 2 min read

We’re excited to get 2021 kicked off for the Theta Network with plans to make this the strongest year yet for Theta growth! 2020 was a challenging year in many respects, but we were fortunate to keep our team safe working remotely, our productivity high, and Theta is better positioned than ever to capitalize on the strengthening crypto space. With the right foundation in place, we expect 2021 to be a period of hyper-growth for Theta Network as we continue to decentralize video and data delivery. At a high level, we expect to 2021 releases and milestones to fall into this quarterly schedule:

Q1 2021

  • TNT-20 “Theta Network Token” minter expanded for NFTs
  • Pre “Elite Edge Node” (TFUEL staking testing)
  • 1-click Delegated staking within Theta wallet
  • Decentralized exchange (DEX) on Theta blockchain
  • NFT marketplace on Theta blockchain
  • 2nd Theta Hackathon launches

Q2 2021

  • Mainnet 3.0 Launch: Elite Edge Nodes, TFUEL staking and burning
  • LINE Dapp launches with Theta integration
  • Official Theta app released for Ledger and/or Trezor
  • v2 Edge Compute with expanded video transcoding/encoding

Q3 2021

  • Edge Caching new use cases (game patches, software updates, etc.)
  • Edge Compute new use cases (Machine Learning, AI, other compute-heavy jobs)
  • v2 Edgecast fully decentralized streaming Dapp

Q4 2021

  • Beta of Edge Storage / IPFS integration
  • v2 Advanced Smart contract developer platform

As always, with further developments this roadmap can change over time and re-prioritized, but is a good reflection of how our development team expects the year to unfold. As Theta community projects develop, resources may be shifted to boost those as well as we are looking to fund and aid development of these ecosystem projects via the Theta Hackathon and otherwise. Stay tuned for more updates on these and other Theta initiatives on the way!
