Tencent-led Series C round pushes total investment in Chinese gamecasting platform Douyu TV to over $2 billion

Tencent has pushed investment in Chinese gamecasting platform Douyu TV reach over $2 billion.

The Chinese corporation had previously invested in the platform in March 2016 during its Series B funding round, where it cleared $1 billion - of which $400 million came from Tencent. 

Douyu has now raised a further $225 million from Tencent and Qingdao Phoenix Capital in a Series C round.

A bit more than ten cents

Developers looking to make use of Douyu TV as an influencer platform may also be interested in the recently launched Voltu, which connects advertising clients with platforms such as Douyu on a global scale.
