“We have long been supporters of the work Theta initiated in using the blockchain infrastructure to deliver decentralized video streaming in ways that provide both technical and economic advantages,” said BridgeTower Founder and CEO Cory Pugh. “We are proud and honored to be among an elite group of technology and blockchain brands that have deployed an enterprise validator node to help expand the Theta network globally.”
The Theta validator group continues to grow into a diverse cross-section of the different stakeholders in the Theta Ecosystem. The total number of Theta validator nodes is now 24, including:
Media and tech companies (Samsung, Sony, Google, CAA)
Blockchain businesses and investors (Binance, gumi Cryptos, Blockchain, BridgeTower Capital)
Venture capital investors (Sierra, DHVC, Heuristic Capital, Venture Reality Fund, and GFR Fund)
Individuals from the Theta community
Now that the required THETA stake has been reduced to 200,000 THETA, we expect more validator nodes to come online and further diversify and decentralize the protocol. Watch for a greatly expanded validator pool for Theta blockchain in 2022, and welcome BridgeTower Capital as the latest validator node on Theta blockchain!
