Cyrus Corridor, whose earlier credit embody engineering Twitch’s video content material supply community (CDN), recommended that streaming competitor Kick’s “actual aim” is popping viewers into clients for the crypto playing website Stake.
Corridor lays his argument out in a Twitter thread. It begins by stating that Kick makes use of Amazon Net Providers 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 just lately banned loads 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 USA. In response, Kick has created a brand new dwelling 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 aim. Corridor explains that “Kick is linked to a crypto playing website (Stake)” and Stake could 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…
