The Fusion of Esports and High-Risk Day Trading

Esports

Esports as currently defined, esports are multi player video games played in an organized fashion and is one of the fastest growing segment of the entertainment industries, in both revenue and viewership. Large scale tournaments have taken place in existing sports stadiums or entertainment arenas, drawing live crowds numbering tens of thousands with on line viewers in the millions.

In 2019, the League of Legends championship game surpassed the Super Bowl by drawing in over 100 million viewers. Streaming is an integral part of esports, as it is a spectator sport with enthusiastic audiences being immersed with the players and teams just as they do with conventional sports teams today.

Growth in this market is so strong that dedicated venues are being built all over the world, designed specifically for esports. In 2018, Esports Stadium Arlington opened in Texas to provide a dedicated venue for esports events.

WallStreetBets

WSB is the largest online community for high-risk and high-return stock market trading. Created in 2012, it has enjoyed exponential growth on an entirely organic basis.
