Galaxis CEO Max Gallardo Discusses the Twitch Competitor's Expedited Contract Model

The influence of professional gamers and other streaming personalities has grown exponentially throughout the last decade. Trendsetters like Tyler "Ninja" Blevins have shattered the barrier between "Internet fame" and genuine, mainstream celebrity. But Twitch and YouTube's business models have their drawbacks, likely needing serious changes in the coming years. One potential catalyst for change is competition, and the forthcoming streaming platform Galaxis could shake things up. One hallmark of Galaxis is a streamlined copyright licensing system that automatically deducts proceeds from the channel using materials, according to CEO Max Gallardo, which could aleviate many of the bulk copyright strike content bans that have plagued creators. That alone could make waves in the industry, but arguably the platform's largest change is in how it approaches corporate contracts. Game Rant spoke with Gallardo about the features he hopes will set his streaming platform apart from current industry giants YouTube and Twitch. Gallardo asserts that the streaming industry's current paradigm contributes to a culture of overwork and creative burn-out. In the current model, the work week for creators starts at 40 hours and can reach 80. According to Gallardo, the way Galaxis handles sponsorship could lead to a whole new paradigm of content…

Kirsten Dunst: 'I'm so tired, I haven't slept through the night in months. I have an eye twitch, too'

The star gives one of her best performances in her new film, The Power of the Dog. That’s no mean feat when you’re sleep-deprived from bringing up two young children The main things Kirsten Dunst wanted out of her trip to Italy were to sleep soundly on the plane and to drink a Bellini upon arrival. She would have considered anything else to be a bonus – and, as it turned out, those bonuses were considerable. Dunst had gone to Italy for Venice Film Festival, where she was premiering The Power of the Dog, a new Netflix movie directed by Jane Campion that features one of the 39-year-old actor’s best performances. She arrived on the last day of August, after months at home raising a newborn baby and a year before that stuck at home because, well, duh. So you can imagine how Dunst felt when she got off the plane, boarded a boat at sunset and sped towards her hotel with the lights of Venice twinkling on the horizon. As she took it all in, Dunst began to well up. A full day of air travel, four sleepless months of child-rearing and the most beautiful city you ever saw…

NICKMERCS wants one big Apex Legends ranked change, but it could lead to “boosting” – Dexerto

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff is calling for one major Apex Legends ranked change ⁠— inspired by the title’s pro tour ⁠— that he believes could solve the battle royale’s competitive grind, but admits the bold idea could lead to new “boosting” issues. “RP” has been a hot topic in Apex Legends for a while now. The battle royale’s competitive currency has been part of the title since 2019 and, for the most part, has been relatively well-received. The way the points work means you don’t have to score a hard-earned victory to climb; instead, kills, assists, and placements help that goal too. There is one issue that arises from the “RP” ⁠— Ranked Points, that is ⁠— is that survival hands Apex Legends big boosts, multiplying any kill or assist points a player may have raked in across the competitive lobby. That means ranked players will “rat” (hide until the end), often kill-stealing from teammates in an effort to climb faster, and NICKMERCS has had enough. Respawn EntertainmentMuch of Apex Legends’ ranked play is based on scoring kills and assists. The Twitch star’s call for new Apex Legends ranked changes came after fellow streaming star Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop raised the topic…

Twitch goes after two originators of “hate raids” against LGBTQ+ streamers – Los Angeles Blade

LONDON, UK – The London-based website known as OnlyFans, which has at least 130 million users and more than 2 million people who create and sell content on the site, including sexually explicit performances, announced on Wednesday that it has reversed a decision made less than two weeks earlier to ban sexually explicit content on its site beginning in October. The reversal came after a groundswell of opposition to the proposed ban surfaced from its performers and customers, many of whom are members of the LGBTQ community who, like their straight counterparts, used the site to generate income over the past year and a half during the COVID pandemic. OnlyFans stated at the time it announced on Aug. 19 its earlier plan to ban sexually explicit content that it did so in response to concerns raised by banks and credit card companies that in recent years have threatened to stop processing payments to adult websites. “Thank you to everyone for making your voices heard,” OnlyFans said in a statement released on Wednesday, Aug. 25. “We have secured assurances necessary to support our diverse creator community and have suspended the planned October 1 policy change,” the statement says. “OnlyFans stands for…
