Setting up the Edge Node

The Theta Edge Node is the latest evolution of the Theta Edge Cacher.

The Edge Node allows you to relay video streams over the Theta Network and earn TFUEL, providing support to THETA.tv and other upcoming video platforms using the Theta Network. With the latest update, you can now also broadcast your own video streams and have them distributed over the Theta Edge Network! This allows you to stream entirely peer-to-peer without any centralized CDN involved.

To start using the Theta Edge Node, download the app for Windows or macOS. If you have an existing version of the Theta Edge Cacher, your software will automatically update to this newest version. This also means that for the first time, macOS users can natively relay video over the Theta Network, which should boost the number of Theta Network nodes making a more robust edge network.

Once you launch the app, you’ll see the Edge Node dashboard:

If you just want to relay other users’ video streams and earn TFUEL, then you’re all set! The “Cache / Compute” section shows your current relaying Status and your Pending Earnings. In this beta version of the Edge Node, earnings are distributed at the end of each month. In the production version of the app, earnings will be distributed to your Theta address in real-time.
