Develop DApps on Theta
We have also provided a Theta wallet Chrome extension for users to interact with the DApps. Its user and developer interfaces are similar to Metamask for Ethereum. Please find its user guide here, and the developer guide here. Please click the links below for more information:
- Smart contract deployment/debug/test guide
- Metamask-like Theta Chrome extension
- DApp development flow
- Blockchain explorer for the mainnet, and the smart contract sandbox
Smart contract support is already enabled on Theta Mainnet, but you can also develop on the Smart Contract Sandbox Testnet first to verify its functionality. If you are doing so and need testnet TFUEL to pay for gas fees, just send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org with Theta Hackathon in the title, and your wallet address in the body for us to send TFUEL to.

Theta Edge Network
the Theta community members host the Theta Edge Nodes, which form the Theta Edge Network, a fully decentralized network for data delivery and more generally edge computing. As of Jan 2021, there are already 7500+ active edge nodes, forming a high performance edge computing and data delivery platform. Please click the links below to learn more:
- Install and run a Theta Edge Node
- Theta Edgecast, an DApp running on the Theta Edge Network, capable of delivering livestreams and chat in realtime across the globe without a central server.
- Theta Edge Compute, where the Theta Edge Network work not only as a data delivery network, but also as a generic edge computing platform.
