With the pandemic, the consumer profile has changed dramatically, as well as companies in sectors that were previously considered of little importance, during the quarantine period. Companies in the entertainment and technology sectors have been very popular, specifically in the production of mobile gaming applications and also sports betting (also known as Sports betting In English).
