5 Twitch Streamers Who Became Filthy Rich

Twitch is a live streaming service for gamers and gaming audiences who like to watch other gamers play. Twitch has a user base of 8 million. Streamers can make money on twitch through 2 ways: either through ads or through monthly subscription from their Viewers. Twitch viewers can watch streams for free, but they do have to watch ads that are non skippable and are usually 15-30 seconds. Viewers can also choose supporting streamers they like by subscribing to them for a month or more. Subscribers usually get perks like subscriber only chat, exclusive emoticons, etc. Twitch gets a 50% cut of the subscription which is usually $5 so twitch gets half of that for each subscriber. Viewers can also tip a stream using twitch’s in-game currency “bits”. Many streamers have earned a living off of twitch streaming and many even consider it their full-time job. Still don’t believe you can make a lot of money playing video games? Continue reading to find out how much these streamers made in the last couple years!
