eSports Fantasy Site Vulcun Shuts Off Real Money Play

One of the hottest esports startups of 2015 is shutting down the core of its business, that being its real money fantasy contests.

The company made the shock announcement on Monay. 

The move comes in response to increasing regulation on daily fantasy sports in many States around the country.

“We’ve seen user engagement shift dramatically over the course of last year, from paid fantasy to all the new features,” Vulcun explained. “For example, last month, less than 10% of our users participated in paid fantasy while 90% participated in everything else.”

And what is that “everything else”?

Quite frankly, it’s hard to tell other than the company’s vague statement that it plans to focus more on its “in-game items”.
