Esports streaming has become an entertainment giant and promises to continue to grow in the coming years. Streaming platforms, such as Twitch and Youtube, have become a haven for community and competition, blending the two into a novel form of interaction that fuels business. This study will analyze how the streaming of esports has influenced business in the technological realm of electronic games and contributed to the field’s longevity. It questions how we, as a society, view community in the online world which itself has become a site for the expansion of how people interact. The study also incorporates the idea of business into the market of technological electronic game-based communities and how competition through esports has also been a fuel for both. Through literature analysis and data collection, the goal of this research would be to increase knowledge on the understanding of streaming esports and help predict what foundation it might take as a whole later on.
