TwitchCon 2019 Update 4: TwitchCon Begins!

Twitchcon booth

The day we’d been preparing for finally arrived – and what a day it was!

Rise and shine

We made sure we got a good head-start to the day to prepare for the influx of interested viewers and streamers. Our booth had been set up from the previous day, so it was mostly adding a last few touch ups to our area.

TwitchCon

The first few minutes of the conference were quiet as people browsed and sampled what was on offer at the first few booths closer to the entrance. 

Gimbl platform

..And before we knew it, the first few interested parties made their way to the Gimbl booth! Interest increased as time progressed and we’re happy to say that we got very positive feedback from both Streamers and Viewers.

Some of the most noteworthy feedback which we received was:

  • Many streamers came across viewers who would challenge them and promise them a certain reward for achieving a specific challenge (over text). Once the challenge was achieved by the streamer, the reward was nowhere to be seen. This is eliminated completely on the Gimbl platform as a viewer cannot place a challenge unless they have sufficient funds to do so in the first place. 
  • The interactivity between viewers and streamers (through challenges and donations) was seen as very positive in terms of viewer retention for the streamers.
  • Streamers were pleasantly surprised to find out that they can monetize from the first day, without having to reach any specific levels or jump through any hoops.
  • Needless to say, we’re very pleased with the response so far and are very much looking forward to another couple of days at TwitchCon.

And on that note, that brings the first day at TwitchCon to a close. In conclusion, the convention had a lot to offer and we came across many other interesting booths, cosplay and intriguing streamer/viewer experiences which we’ll be detailing in tomorrow’s blog post.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for more updates on our TwitchCon experience.
