Theta Labs is a startup that is building a content-delivery network for streaming and video delivery. Theta Labs was previously featured in an insight about some of the big-name partnerships it had been able to make with companies like Google and Lionsgate. In July of 2021 it was issued its third patent, bringing it up to six total patent assets which ties them for second in the Blockchain category with Dell EMC, Intel, and Vapor IO.
Theta Labs will likely take sole ownership of the second place spot soon and only lag behind Akamai, a company with considerably more resources to invest. Theta has also been able to forge a new partnership to expand into the NFT space, leveraging its blockchain technology in a new business venture. Theta’s strong investment in intellectual property has also kept them firmly in front of competitors Livepeer, Lbry, and Aioz, none of which have any signs of US patent activity. Theta Labs is positioned well to continue growing and with the co-founder of YouTube and the co-founder of Twitch on its advisory board, it has big potential to be a disruptor in video streaming.
