Cyrus Corridor, whose earlier credit embody engineering Twitch’s video content material supply community (CDN), prompt that streaming competitor Kick’s “actual objective” is popping viewers into prospects for the crypto playing web site Stake.
Corridor lays his argument out in a Twitter thread. It begins by mentioning that Kick makes use of Amazon Net Companies Interactive Video Service (AWS IVS). Corridor describes this as “the Twitch video system wrapped in AWS APIs.”
As a result of Kick has to pay Twitch for this service and Amazon owns Twitch, Kick is successfully paying its largest competitors.
Twitch lately banned a whole lot of playing content material (and all the time appears to be on the verge of banning extra of it), particularly streams of crypto casinos which are unregulated in the US. In response, Kick has created a brand new house for a few of these banned playing streamers, and Corridor has an thought as to why.
Possibly a sustainable streaming enterprise is just not the objective. Corridor explains that “Kick is linked to a crypto playing web site (Stake)” and Stake may be on the lookout for a brand new platform to “lure avid gamers with.”
With Twitch banning playing streamers, it seems like Stake is placing collectively its personal streaming service with blackjack and…
Properly, with a minimum of positively with blackjack.
