SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Theta Labs, the leading video delivery network powered by blockchain, today announced the launch of THETA Live Embed, a new turnkey product that allows 24/7 THETA.tv Esports live streaming content to be added to almost any website, blog, or social media platform with minimal technical effort. Popular games like Fortnite, League of Legends and CS:GO streamed through THETA Live Embed are fully integrated with the Theta Network blockchain, allowing viewers to relay streams to their peers and earn Theta token rewards, TFUEL, just for watching and sharing their bandwidth resources. The first partner to integrate the product is G FUEL, The Official Energy Drink of Esports®.
Any partner site with THETA Live Embed automatically benefits from THETA.tv’s highly engaging and entertaining roster of more than 300 top Esports streamers including RisingFlame, teamtnt, and Deicide. The site and its users each earn 33% of the total TFUEL based on the amount of content and bandwidth shared, with the remaining 33% donated to support the streamers. All the revenue share is automated and transparent through Theta Blockchain’s “auto-split” smart contract and is easily auditable on the public chain. On average, sites can expect to see incremental revenues of $50,000 to over $100,000 per 1 million monthly active users.
“As The Official Energy Drink of Esports, we pride ourselves on pushing the envelope and providing the best experience possible to our Esports and gaming communities,” said G FUEL Founder and CEO, Cliff Morgan. “This includes expanding our long-term partnership with the innovators at THETA.tv and being an early adopter of THETA Live Embed — all so that we can easily provide live action-packed Esports content to our worldwide fans for free.”
“As we engaged with potential Theta partners over the past year, we heard more and more that live 24/7 Esports content coupled with a loyalty or rewards program is strategic to their global business and user growth,” said Mitch Liu, CEO of Theta Labs, Inc. “We took THETA Live Embed a step further where our partners can integrate it in a few hours, and immediately start earning new revenues. Their users can earn rewards by simply watching content they love, sharing their bandwidth and being part of the community. It’s a powerful way for platforms to naturally drive retention and increase conversion to paid and premium products and services.”
