Gambling or Betting. Would you call it Freelancing?
Over the few past years betting and gambling sites have exploded and it can be seen literally everywhere on the internet. People from all over the world can easily place bets on various sites using both credit cards or PayPal, just to name two of the payment methods.
Obviously, these things often leads to addictions but if we forget about that part for now.. You can bet on things like football games and all that.. But, you can even place bets on CS:GO matches for instance.
With that being said, I've seen a lot of people having this like their "profession", and many of them are making loads of cash..
Some of them are truly putting in hours into this, to calculate the risks, finding information regarding different players to see if they've been sick etc. So they make real analysis. They also "invest" their money, as they are placing their money in the hands of a team of players..
Would you call them Freelancers and would you call it "investments"?
