It is with great pleasure that we announce as of today, January 15th, 2020, SLIVER.tv is now officially renamed THETA.tv!
Our business has grown and evolved over the years since we first started in 360° Virtual Reality Esports in 2016, maturing into a giveaway platform for Twitch streamers to grow their brand, finally resulting in the March 15th, 2019 launch of our blockchain-powered live streaming website - SLIVER.tv, powered by the Theta Network.
Almost one year later, this name change allows us to better match our goals and closely align our brand alongside the flagship product - the Theta Network - our decentralized peer-to-peer CDN delivery infrastructure based on the blockchain. THETA.tv is the first of many video platforms to implement the Theta Network infrastructure, dramatically increasing user engagement and slashing video CDN costs by over 50%. With the THETA.tv team working in-house alongside the Theta Network engineers, we’re afforded the opportunity to improve our technology and gauge the results in real-time.
The Theta Network team celebrates today's THETA.tv launch
As we move into the future, THETA.tv will now exclusively feature 100% blockchain-based direct livestreams and no longer embed other websites. Furthermore, the community will now collectively decide the top creators on the platform with the brand-new Partner Royale - a season-based streamer XP leaderboard that awards the top 10% of streamers with the coveted Theta Partner title. For those looking to stream on THETA.tv, they will have to get their hands on a stream key and from there work their way up to Affiliate, Partner, and finally Partner Prestige. More info on streaming to THETA.tv can be found here.
We appreciate your understanding and hope you like our new name. The logo remains the same as SLIVER.tv with slightly updated, brighter colors. You may find our new updated brand guidelines and logo download here. The launch of THETA.tv is just the beginning of what will no doubt be a monumental 2020; thank you for continuing to be the best community on the internet!
The THETA team.
