Why is Gimli relevant
Streamers have massive audience in the hundreds of millions globally. Yet, streamers monetization of their viewers is low.
- Ads-blockers are widespread, limiting advertising revenue.
- Subscription fees are low compared with traditional sports, with streaming platforms taking a considerable share.
- Sponsorships are few in a developing industry.
- Viewership drops dramatically after each game ends, with volatile audience going to other channels with ongoing entertainment.
Gimli fits in alongside current monetization methods. With Gimli, streamers can create entertainments and functionalities with GIM embedded commissions. From the substantial source of direct GIM revenues, to better engagement, higher number of minutes watched and increased donations, Gimli’s promise is to give control back to streamers.
