The honeymoon period for video game streamers in India may be coming to an end, as the platforms Loco and Rooter have steeply cut payments to several creators and have also let go of some of them. Entrackr spoke to over half a dozen creators across both platforms, who said their pay has been slashed to more than half of what they used to make.
Rooter and Loco streamers told Entrackr their payments were cut by as much as 50–60% starting July. Both are two of India’s leading online game streaming platforms with millions of daily users, flush with recent funding.
