The industries of video gaming and electronic sports are developing at an extraordinary rate. Gaming competitions are becoming much more professional gathering huge prize pools, attracting millions of viewers and massive sponsorship contracts. In many countries, at a domestic level, eSports have been classified as a sport.
Moreover, special video games streaming platforms are becoming a new source of entertainment for the younger generation completely replacing TV and even becoming a huge threat to the modern-day sources of entertainment, like Youtube. Notably, Youtube now has a special section dedicated to video games streaming. Just a few days ago, Google announced that they are expanding into the industry by launching the Stadia cloud gaming platform. This move alone should be a clear indicator (and erase all doubts) that this industry has a lucrative future.
