    With live-streaming becoming an increasingly lucrative business in China, it was only a matter of time before psychics started seeing a future in it.

    A number of psychics, shamans and soothsayers alike have recently set up shop on YY Live, one of China's most popular live-streaming platforms, New Express reported Sunday.

    More than 10 live streaming channels on YY cater to fortune-telling, with prices ranging from 50 yuan ($7.14) to 100 yuan for a simple reading to 6,600 yuan to exorcise evil spirits — through the Internet.

    Similar to your run-of-the-mill psychic, live-streaming fortune tellers require additional payment to prevent any foreseen yet vague disasters.

    To date there is no official regulation of psychics operating on live-streaming platforms.
