Train has been near the top of Twitch for a while, but has been in the news more frequently of late. Trainwreckstv is streaming gambling, which has been on the hot seat since Twitch banned slots last month.
With Trainwrecks at the top of the category, it’s understandable that he took this as a direct shot. He even went so far as to claim that the ban was more about him than about gambling as an entity.
Although Trainwrecks has a long history of claiming that people are out to get him, he has a bit of a point. Sports gambling is still allowed on the platform, so it’s tough to claim that Twitch is taking a moral stance.
Trainwreckstv new streaming platform
Train has made it clear that he doesn’t want to switch platforms just to continue gambling, but that he does have one idea in mind: his own platform.
He teased the Trainwreckstv streaming platform last week, but it appears to be closer than we originally thought.
During a recent stream, Trainwreckstv claimed that his new streaming platform could be ready for 2022 – even an announcement next month.
As long as Train hasn’t lost too much money on slots, he can afford to make a move such as this. He recently revealed that he had made $360 million for 16 months of gambling streams with his contract, alone.
We should hear more news about the platform in the coming weeks, as it gets closer to an official announcement. For now, Trainwrecks plans to stream normal – non-gambling – content on his channel.
