Twitch to Ban Crypto Gambling Livestreams After Backlash From Influencers

Twitch will ban controversial crypto gambling livestreams after backlash against recent multi-million-dollar sponsorship deals enjoyed by top Twitch personalities.

Twitch, which is owned by Amazon.com Inc., will prohibit livestreaming gambling sites like Stake.com, Rollbit and Duelbits.com that “aren’t licensed either in the US or other jurisdictions that provide sufficient consumer protection,” Twitch said in a statement posted on Twitter. Stake.com, the most popular of these sites, is licensed in Curacao. The ban goes into effect October 18.
