Pro gaming/Twitch streaming is a unique lifestyle with more and more people making big money playing the games they'd gladly play for free. Streams and esports are gaining huge followings with big money celebrities and broadcast networks hopping on board, sponsoring teams and more. But what really goes into this ultra-competitive market of individuals constantly competing to one-up each other, 24/7 (literally)? Join LeX & Nati the Zombi Unicorn in a panel moderated by WootyStyle, on how to monetize your gaming habit while navigating the mental, physical and emotional health tolls of becoming a celebrated pro gamer. In competition everyone's looking for an edge; don't play yourself!
