15 Wealthiest Twitch Streamers
By Nathan Fusco
Trying to quantify wealth for Twitch streamers can be difficult as there are multiple ways of revenue for streamers. It can all depend on the average viewer when ads roll, the percent of the subscription, donations, and content or sponsorship deals.
To make things simple and as most of this information isn't public, we'll go off of monthly subscriptions and a flat $2.50 per Tier 1, $5.00 per Tier 2, and $12.50 for Tier 3. We know that some streamers make more and others make less of a cut, but that information isn't public knowledge.
