About loots

At loots, our mission is to create scalable solutions to help streamers monetize their content with the biggest brands in gaming.


Why loots? 

The media landscape has evolved and over the past 5-10 years and corporate brands have become less important in the overall creation and dissemination of information and content.


Meanwhile social platforms have allowed passionate individuals and qualified professionals to become important opinion leaders, information curators and content creators.


Nowhere is this more evident than in the games marketplace where streamers are playing a key role in driving new game discovery and influencing purchase intent.


With this in-mind, loots has built an ad platform that reinvented the live-stream ad experience by placing ads in-stream and finely balancing the benefits to streamers directly while rewarding live-stream audiences with a new way to engage with streamers direction.


This rapid growth has created exceptional opportunities for the right person.
