Douyu CEO’s gambling scandal may involve a number of leading game anchors

Recently, the news of the arrest of Douyu CEO Chen Shaojie has once again pushed the already troubled industry of game live broadcasting into the vortex of the storm.

According to the 21st Century Business Herald, an industry insider close to Douyu in Beijing revealed that Douyu’s incident will likely involve a group of leading game anchors in the future, mostly due to their involvement in gambling and money laundering.
