THETA’s entrance to the top 10 coins by market cap comes soon after major altcoin Bitcoin Cash (BCH) dropped off the top 10 list in early March.

The new all-time highs for THETA come shortly after Theta Labs secured its second patent on designs for decentralized blockchain-based video and data delivery from the United States Patent and Trademark Office on March 16. Earlier in March, Theta Labs released an open-source code for the Theta protocol version 2.2.0 on its GitHub.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph, the Theta Network has been actively growing its validator program, attracting collaboration with Fortune Global 500 firms like Google, Samsung and Sony, as well as major industry firms like Binance, Blockchain.com and Gumi.
