Stockstream – Twitch Channel

Reading Time: 1 minute

Watch live video from StockStream on www.twitch.tv

StockStreamLive is a social experiment billed as “The worlds first cooperative multiplayer Stock Market game using real money.”. Mike Roberts, the creator put $50,000 into an account on Robinhood which stocks being voted on by the channel’s chat. Think Twitch Plays Pokemon but using real money in a stock market. The experiment ends when the account reaches a balance of $25,000, so a loss of half the starting amount.

While I don’t participate in chat for the channel, I routinely monitor the portfolio and twitter feed @stockstream. It is interesting to see the gains and losses that Mike is getting with this experiment. Currently at the time of publication Mike is up over $1,000.

June Releases

Reading Time: 1 minute

Video Games
Currently with this month, not a lot of releases that I am looking forward to. But with E3 coming up later this month, I am eagerly awaiting what will be announced during that for the year to come. One game I am looking forward to is being released on June 30th, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. This game features Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot Warped. While I didn’t play Crash Bandicoot as a kid, I am looking forward to this release so I can experience those games now.

Movies
Two movies releasing on June 2nd, Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Looking forward to the next installment in the DC Universe, when Wonder Woman comes out. Having ran the Captain Underpants books as a kid, I am curious on how the movie will turn out. Later in the month on the 21st comes the release of Transformers: The Last Knight. Having seen the rest of the movies, I am looking forward to watching this one. At the end of the month, brings the release of Despicable Me 3. Being a fan of the minions, I can’t wait for this release.

Music
Three releases I am looking forward to this month. The first release coming from All Time Low on June 2nd, entitled Last Young Renegade. One week later, comes the release of Wolves by Rise Against. Near the end of the month on the 23rd comes the release of Evolve by Imagine Dragons.

Check out my thoughts on last month.
