Hi,

After releasing my first game (redwizardisland.com) I got various messages from Twitch streamers saying they wanted to help promote my game. However, after checking their profiles I realized they are awarding game keys to their subscribers as rewards. I realized they are not going to promote my game, but just want the free keys. Is there somewhere a blacklist of Twitch accounts I can check, so I know which ones are really interested in promoting my game? If there isn't such a blacklist, I can start it.

Have you had experience similar to mine?

That's how it goes all the time. Bonus is some mail linking to a hugely famous channel and asking for "a key for me and a couple of keys for a giveaway". The sender being a random bob and all of the keys going straight to shady resale sites like G2A. This is an actual bussiness model off which some people pay their bills.
