Tamago is Shutting Down

I found out today from my contacts that Tamago the Live Streaming platform is shutting down or closing its operations, as for the credibility of my sources it seems this are legit claims, for legal concerns I wont be naming them.



So why what's the deal? Here is what the inside story in regards to the company.

First is the growth, Tamago is not growing as a live streaming platform since there is very huge competition, for example, Nimo TV, Facebook and Twitch.

Then its also mentioned that streamers are faking their completion hours by re-uploading pre-recorded videos, this resulted on fake engagements from streamers and the viewer.

Additionally is according to the source, a 15millions USD company funds were stolen in the China office. Lastly, all contracts for all Filipino live streamers have also been terminated according to our source.

Update: Tamago Public Announcement


Public Announcement of Closure
Thank you for your continued support to Tamago.

The Tamago app is in the midst of winding down operations and will cease operations in all markets by 31 December 2018. This has been a difficult decision and there are many reasons that lead us to this conclusion. Suffice to say, the business has been challenging and it is commercially unfeasible for us to continue operating under the current circumstances.

For the past year, we have been humbled by the passion and support of all fans. It’s been a privilege to work tirelessly and endlessly to deliver you joy and delight around the clock.

Our team have been busy, reaching to as many of you as they possibly can. If you have any enquiries, please refer to [email protected]. Please note that functions like gifting ends on 7 December while other functions will be phased out over the next few weeks.

Finally, we'd like to thank all our users and streamers who have made Tamago great throughout its period.

Thank you,

The Tamago Team

I wouldnt be surprised if NimoTV would shutdown next. The chinese type of streaming isnt compatible with the Philippine market. First they have to see who their audience which are peenoise kids with no jobs or even access to internet.

So how can you charge people who cant afford your demonetization. RIP TAMAGO

Agree with everything you said.

Most of the streamers from TAMAGO are probably gonna stream now on Facebook or YouTube.
