How is the coronavirus pandemic currently affecting your business?
As an esports-first affiliate platform we're in a unique position during this coronavirus outbreak. We've seen our traffic over double across a range of esports titles and seen astounding interest in some of the cross-over esports titles such as FIFA and NBA2k. Interest across social media has spiked and the esports industry as a whole has boomed.

What advice would you give operators (and / or affiliates) during these testing times?
With the mandatory halting of traditional sports around the globe we've no doubt that many affiliates have seen a great lull in both traffic and revenue. In these times it's important to ensure that your affiliate network has enough diversity to ensure that it can be sustained. Slots, Virtual Sports and, most importantly to us, esports have flourished during this time.

What will your talk be about at AffiliateCon Virtually Live?
We'll be talking about how COVID-19 has been an unexpected and unprecedented opportunity for esports and betting / affiliate industry. We'll be sharing both our first hand experiences and insights from our esports specialist betting partners.
