What’s the Deal With Twitch Stocks?

It’s no secret that Twitch has emerged as the number one video game live streaming service. And as of January 2021, the platform had 2.5 million streamers and 40 million viewers. Twitch has resonated well with Generation Z, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. So, if you’re interested in investing in Twitch, you should know that the company got bought up by Amazon in 2014 for $970 million. So, if you want to invest in the future of Twitch, you’re going to have to buy Amazon stock, which probably isn’t the worst idea in the world. 

Amazon Stocks

Since Twitch is owned by Amazon, there is no way to invest only in Twitch. If you want to support the financial future of the company, you’re going to have to invest in Amazon (AMZN).

So, if you think that Amazon as a whole is going to continue to grow and their stock price will continue to go up and Jeff Bezos will continue to get even richer, go ahead and invest. If you think that the government will eventually restrict Amazon’s growth, causing their stock price to go down, then don’t invest. It’s up to you.


Think about this: what if you could invest in individual Twitch streamers? That wasn’t my original idea. It already exists! Sort of…

TwitchStocks.com allows you to invest in individual Twitch streamers, but with fake money. Their prices go up and down just like a normal NYSE stock or cryptocurrency price. Again, this is not real money you’re investing, it’s just a game. So, if you choose to invest in a Twitch streamer and they later become super popular and their price shoots to the moon, you’re not going to make any actual money. However, you can tell your friends that you predicted their rise to internet fame, and that’s worth something.

NFT Twitch Streamer Stocks

Who knows? Maybe with the rise of NFTs, we’ll be able to invest real money in Twitch streamers soon enough. Imagine that you have an NFT that’s tied to a specific Twitch streamer. If you were to buy that specific NFT and then that Twitch streamer blew up in popularity, the NFT would also rise in value, and you’d make some money.

Of course, NFTs are non-fungible by nature, meaning that they’re all unique. So, in the hypothetical case I just described, only one or a few people would be able to invest in a certain Twitch streamer. In that way, it would be quite different from investing in traditional stocks. However, we never know what the future holds, and maybe one day you’ll be able to invest in real Twitch streamer stocks.

If you had no idea what I was talking about when I referred to NFTs, or you just want to learn more about them, make sure you check out our video below.
