Guys, Mr Beast is fake, the thing you don't see in his videos is that he also donates to partnered streamers who have a stable viewership and that's what it's all about, he makes a deal with them for exposure so Mr Beasts channel is just a big commercial for twitch streamers. Everything else that you see is merely so he can stay "relevant"

Don't think it's easy guys. As a female who has been on this platform for about a year and a half and I stream and study full time, I make about 300$ Twitch Revenue (in addition, my country doesnt have a tax treaty with US so I pay 55% tax) a month and maybe something on the side if someone donates. About 200 avg viewers per stream .

I'm curious about the lower end pay which they didn't really delve into. Are we talking $10.00 a day over 8 hours for the average twitch streamer? $10.00 a week? $10.00 month? How does that typically change as you go from 50 followers to 200 but before Twitch partners?

even if you do hit the 70k mark that's still nothing compared to a real career.  No medical insurance, dental, vision, life, 401K, paid vacations, other perks and if you get hurt you will not get paid for that if you can't stream. What if you break your hand or need a major surgery? Most popular streamers are putting in 12 hour days factor that into an hourly wage and your probably making around minimum wage at best. Ohh yea there's always the tax man lurking about. How do you even get a loan? Do you go to the bank and say hey I'm a twitch streamer? Even in the long run if twitch ever fails and you have been doing these multiple years. How would it look on a job application?  It's just a hobby and cool if you get some cash to put towards a new gaming rig or games. Definitely a horrible carrier.

+Gamester yea because packers make 70k. So your basically saying a streamer could be a Media CEO because they put down "toolbox" on their resume? That's basically saying a stripper could go work at the Paris Opera Ballet. You're making comparison that are way off base. I'm glad you have your own business good luck with that.
Gamester (8 days ago)
A real Career? You mean working at amazon sourcing and packing peoples orders? The streamers who work for 12 hours a day to promote themselves and there channels have more skills in the toolbox than most professionals that I work with. How does it look like on a Job application? I run my own media business successfully for a number of years and now I am choosing to apply my skill set to a new challenge. I would much rather hire this person than someone who has been stuck in the same job for 10 years. The latter shows me they have no ambition and although can do the job recruited for has no ambition to develop any further.
