Twitch to ban crypto gambling live streams

Twitch will ban all crypto gambling live streams, among other gambling content, on October 18.

The live streaming service received multiple threats from influencers who claimed to stop using the service if the company did not eliminate its gambling footage.

The live-streaming service will forgo displaying gambling sites such as, and Rollbit, and any others that fail to have the correct license in “either in the US or other jurisdictions that provide sufficient consumer protection”, it said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“While we prohibit sharing links or referral codes to all sites that include slots, roulette or dice games, we’ve seen some people circumvent those rules and expose our community to potential harm.”

Live-streaming footage of gamblers has become a popular means of entertainment for many, not dissimilar to the Twitch audiences watching Fortnite, according to data from TwitchTracker.

Reportedly fans have become hooked on using crypto for gambling after watching their favourite streamers play.

While Twitch declared it will “prohibit the streaming of gambling sites, slots, roulette, and dice games”, the service will continue to allow websites that focus on sports betting, fantasy sports, and poker.

If you want to use your cryptocurrencies for recreational purposes, you can explore entertaining and trusted websites such as 1xBit, Bitcasino or FortuneJack.
