twitch, gambling/predatory capitalism
the idea of betting worthless points (channel points) on worthless things for fun is actually pretty cool but I absolutely know that it's just a test to see if it would go well for them to start betting actual money (bits) on things as a way to squeeze more money out of the platform
gambling is super fun when there are zero stakes, but I know that the plan is to get people invested because there are zero stakes so they can add money later
