Cyrus Corridor, whose earlier credit embrace engineering Twitch’s video content material supply community (CDN), prompt that streaming competitor Kick’s “actual purpose” is popping viewers into prospects for the crypto playing web site Stake.
Corridor lays his argument out in a Twitter thread. It begins by declaring 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 just lately banned lots 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 might be unregulated in the USA. 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.
Perhaps a sustainable streaming enterprise just isn’t the purpose. Corridor explains that “Kick is linked to a crypto playing web site (Stake)” and Stake could be in search of a brand new platform to “lure avid gamers with.”
