Games industry roundup: The hottest stories across the mobile, blockchain and influencer sectors

Here on PCGamesInsider.biz we focus on the glorious and ultimately supreme world of PC, but we feel it's important to share what is happening in the wider world of video games.

To that end, each week we round up the hottest stories as selected by our expert editorial team across our network of sites that includes PocketGamer.biz, InfluencerUpdate.biz and BlockchainGamer.biz.

In the world of mobile, this week it's all about Fortnite ditching Google Play on Android and AppLovin talking about getting into the mobile games publishing business. That's on top of Peak Games talking about why it teamed up with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds for its marketing. 

Over on InfluencerUpdate.biz, there's an in-depth and honest look at how streamers are dealing with chronic illnesses while trying to manage a career online. Elsewhere there was trouble as Paypal declined Patreon payments, while Zorka.mobi provides a detailed analysis of influencer marketing country-by-country.
