SPEEDGAMING GLOBAL TRAFFIC NUMBERS

SpeedGaming was created by legendary speedrunner "Feasel" in 2015 as a way to give back to the speedrunning community. SpeedGaming hosts speedrunning races, which typically involves two to four players playing a video game with the intention of completing it as fast as possible.

SpeedGaming generates significant global traffic from its 6 channels on Twitch.tv in multiple languages. Over the most recent one week period, its main channel generated.

14.5 million views and 450,000 hours of total watch time. Over the most recent 30 day period, SpeedGaming generated approximately 30 million views and 850,000 hours of total watch time.

The global speedrunning community is growing at a very fast pace, with single events raising over $2,000,000 for charity in 2018, and is expected to continue growing at a very rapid pace for years to come. VIE is now positioned to become the P2P betting platform for speedrunning and expects to announce further agreements in this space.

SpeedGaming Founder Feasel stated "SpeedGaming is proud to be partnering with Vie.gg. We have built the largest competitive speedrunning network, broadcasting over 50 tournaments per year on 9 channels. We are happy to be giving our users the ability to bet on their favourite players. We expect that this, along with substantial cash prizes for upcoming tournaments, will serve to broaden the exposure of both SpeedGaming and Vie, as well as, continue to attract the top players in the world to join these events."

Brian Cordry, Head of Esports at Esports Entertainment Group, stated, "SpeedGaming has been home to every important speedrun game for the past 3 years across its collective English Twitch channels, as well as, a handful of broadcasts in other languages. SpeedGaming is truly a speedrun authority and we look forward to supporting their community by sponsoring two tournaments and taking bets on several more they will be hosting to close out 2018. We are especially excited to build a long-term future with SpeedGaming and help push speedrunning to the heights that esports is currently achieving."
