HUYA Inc. (NYSE: HUYA) is the No.1 game live streaming platform in China. We have the largest and most active game live streaming community in terms of average MAUs, and average daily time spent on mobile app per mobile active user in the fourth quarter of 2016 and 2017, and the largest number of active broadcasters in 2016 and 2017, according to a report by Frost & Sullivan, which was commissioned by us. As the pioneer and market leader, we are well positioned to expand further in the rapidly growing game live streaming market in China. We cooperate with e-sports event organizers, as well as major game developers and publishers, and have developed e-sports live streaming as one of the most popular content genres on our platform. Building on our success in game live streaming, we have also extended our content to other entertainment genres, such as talent shows, anime and outdoor activities.
We have created an engaged, interactive and immersive community for game enthusiasts of China’s young generation. Our rich and high-quality game live streaming content is a magnet for users who share common interests to connect and share their passion on our platform. Our users interact with one another with the support of our platform’s wide array of innovative and appealing social functions, such as bullet chatting, real-time commenting and gifting. Such real-time interactions on our platform cultivate a strong sense of belonging, which effectively increases our user stickiness and time spent.
Our open platform also functions as a marketplace for broadcasters and talent agencies to congregate and closely collaborate with us. We have set up effective operating standards and comprehensive incentive mechanisms to encourage healthy competition, good performance and regulatory compliance. The monetization opportunities for broadcasters and talent agencies are linked to their performance, which motivates them to supply high-quality content to our platform. We believe our role as an efficient and transparent marketplace fueled our continuous growth and success.
Our content is highly dynamic. Beyond the real-time nature of live streaming where each broadcaster improvises in each live streaming session, our community interactions generate another form of content. The variety of real-time interactions between viewers and broadcasters or among viewers creates viewer-generated content, which in turn becomes part of the overall entertainment and social experience offered on our platform. Such content enhances the sense of involvement and makes it more fun to watch live streaming.
Our technology platform is designed for reliability, scalability and flexibility. Leveraging our strong technological capabilities in the fields of big data and artificial intelligence, or AI, live streaming, and infrastructure, we deliver a superior user experience and conduct operations in a highly efficient manner.
