The rise of the robust streaming industry continues to evolve, and twitch streamers are now earning some serious cash to play brand new games as studios look to push exposure of their new titles.

According to the Wall Street Journal, streamers that host twitch streams that attract 15,000 or more viewers simultaneously, can earn anywhere between, $25,000 and $50,000 an hour from publishers if they stream a newly releases game from that studio, said Reed Duchscher, president of Night Media Inc., which is a firm that represents some of the world’s top influencers.

The formula has been successful, as seen with the epic launch of Apex Legends, and more and more companies are taking the same approach, as it is slowly evolving into a new way of marketing, one that is paying off for both the companies, and the streamers.

Here we go again. Twitch is back at handing out their bans in confusing, and controversial, fashion, and just handed ‘Just Chatting’ streamer Novaruu for an odd violation of their terms of service.

Novaruu took to Twitter to address the ban, and also question how the length of her ban warranted the same length of bans handed out for those who are banned for nudity.

According to Dexerto, under section 9(iii) of the platform’s Terms of Service, streamers are not allowed to “make unsolicited offers, advertisements, proposals…to users of the Twitch services, including…things related to promotional giveaways.”

Streamers must also abide by the United States law when doing giveaways like this. Alabama, Hawaii, and Utah have banned raffles in their states. Novaruu currently resides in Texas, but is still subject to regulations under Federal law.
