Ryan Wyatt has left YouTube to join Polygon Studios, an NFT firm that works with Atari and DraaftKing.
Gaming firms and content providers alike are making use of social media to spread the word about their products, as well as to show you gameplays of exclusive games, current news, and even highlighted discounts.
Follow us on Twitter @spielnft for an amazing NFT community! It’s still new but together, we can do great things!
A key player in this ecosystem is YouTube, a social network powered by Google videos where we can watch hundreds of videos and live sessions devoted to video games every day through YouTube Gaming, the section of the site devoted to this niche.
Ryan Wyatt’s Departure
When Wyatt first started working on YouTube, he had no idea how big of a deal it would be for the firm to start signing prominent streamers like DrLupo, Valkyrae, and TimTheTatman who had been making their money on Twitch until recently.
However, terrible news for Google came yesterday when YouTube’s video game division chief, Ryan Wyatt, revealed his departure from Google to join a new firm.
Polygon Studios, his new company, specializes in NFTs and “play-to-earn” games in which you may make money while playing. Atari (for an NFT project) and DraftKings have already signed deals with Polygon.
It is bittersweet news to share that I am leaving @YouTube.
I have loved every minute of my time here, but it is time for my next endeavor.
I am elated to announce that I will be joining @0xPolygon ($MATIC) as their CEO of Polygon Studios.
Thank you for the memories! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/VhQxpqDbFO
