Harmony and Disharmony

Hi friend,

New things are coming. And like in any time of significant change, tensions increase. On the one hand, we can see that a new live-streaming platform has emerged, intending to conquer the West through a healthy approach without a trace of competition among streamers. So a new chance is growing. In China, on the other hand, the authorities are seriously interfering in the industry, and it is difficult today to say in which direction this will go.

In the gaming world, in turn, a new approach to what gaming is and the big tech associated with it causes tensions between players. This is how the industry’s future is shaped, and we sometimes get an insight into how it is forged.

Paradoxically, only Discord has total harmony 😉
