What is Theta Fuel (TFUEL) ? 

Theta Fuel is the operational token of the Theta protocol. TFUEL different than Theta Token (THETA), so these two should not be mistaken with each other, as TFUEL is the governance token of the Theta blockchain which supported by thousands of community-run Guardian nodes. Theta Fuel in extension to the entire Theta Ecosystem, was co-founded by Mitch Liu ( has long history in gaming industry) and Jieyi Long (CTO) in 2017. 

Why introduce a second currency at all? 

  • The utility and purpose of each token can first be distinguished thanks to this. While TFUEL is used to fuel network transactions and operations, THETA is utilized to stake and secure the network. Staking naturally reduces the amount of coin in circulation, thus this is required, but smart contracts and video relay transactions will also call for a highly liquid token that can handle millions of daily transactions.

  • Second, the use of two tokens is required to address governance problems brought on by the use of a single token for both staking and operations. It would be simpler for a malicious actor to amass a sizable amount of that regularly traded token on the open market because the token used for operations must be liquid. They could potentially endanger the safety of the Theta Network by covertly obtaining a significant amount of the staking token if that same token is also used for staking. That risk is significantly reduced by dividing the two functionalities (staking and operations) into separate tokens


Theta was helped to establish by Mitch Liu and Jieyi Long in 2018. Liu has a long history in the gaming and video enterprises, helping to establish video promoting firm Tapjoy, social gaming startup Gameview Studios, and THETA.tv, the live streaming stage whose DApp was the first to be based on the Theta protocol. 

Long is Theta’s subsequent co-founder and CTO, with similar multi-year experience in design automation, gaming, virtual reality, and large scale distributed systems. He was the author of multiple peer-reviewed academic papers and currently has numerous patents in video streaming, blockchain and virtual reality. 

Theta presently has a modest group of people working for it, and its official site records key corporate financial investors as Samsung NEXT, Sony Innovation Fund, media investors BDMI Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments, CAA Creative Artists Agency, and conventional Silicon Valley VCs including DCM, Sierra Ventures and the VR Fund.
