Blockchain enters all new Samsung thanks to eSports
A video platform for esports blockchain based will come on all new Samsung Galaxy S20 sold in the USA.
This is what is indicated on a publication from the blog Theta.tv, which reveals that its content will soon be integrated into Samsung Daily, preinstalled on all smartphones Galaxy S20 of the Korean house sold on the American market.
In addition, Samsung Daily will be updated to include the content of Theta.tv also in all Galaxy S10 and S9, in addition to Note10 and Note9.
In total more than 75 million devices will be reached.
Theta.tv is a blockchain-based eSport video platform Theta, and will be one of the few content providers for the Samsung Daily app, as well as YouTube, Netflix and other streaming services.
In particular, the content published by this platform concerns live events 24/7, World Poker Tour tournaments, blockchain conferences like Consensus and Crypto Asia Summit, etc.
Samsung Daily is the app for discovering new content, preinstalled on all new Samsung Galaxy and Note devices, containing news, videos, games and more. In this way, users can simply scroll down the main screen to view their favorite content.
Theta.tv will not only offer video content to users via Samsung Daily, but it will also provide an interactive user experience, thanks to live video streaming, and without having to install any other application or open the browser.
It also already allows users to chat with other users, send donations to streamers and earn rewards, thanks to the underlying blockchain.
Prizes can also be won simply by watching the content offered by the platform, and can then be given to streamers and content creators, in the same way as, for example, as happens on Brave.
These innovative ways of engaging with users and creators’ compensation are starting to spread more and more and could emerge as a new business model for the online content industry.
In addition, the fact that a giant like Samsung has in fact decided to promote this initiative immediately puts these new platforms in the spotlight, allowing them to practically reach the general public without additional efforts.
The comparison on Samsung Daily with extremely attractive platforms, like YouTube, will allow you to understand very quickly if this new economic model, which also pays content users, will be able to compete with the traditional one.
The co-founder and CEO of Theta Labs, Mitch Liu, he stated:
“Theta has partnered with various Samsung groups in the past two years after Samsung NEXT invested in the company in 2017. We are delighted to continue developing our relationship with Samsung by offering millions of device users mobile devices THETA.tv, based on our blockchain technology and TFUEL rewards.
