The Most Popular eSports Streamers

The evolution of technology in recent years has changed the way that we see and enjoy video games. Today’s computers have incredible potential, and they can run massive games seamlessly while also allowing the ability to stream content live over the Internet. The people who practice this activity are known as ‘ streamers.’ Let’s have a look at some of the most successful ones.

 

What does it mean to be a streamer?

A streamer is a person who either plays a video game or comments on it in real-time and broadcasts it on a platform. Thus, typically, they are professional or semi-professional players of a video game or commentators on them.

Streamers often spend quite a few hours in front of the computer, playing games and discussing it with fans. Some stream several hours a day, almost every day of the week, as if it were a 40-hour workweek. Where do they spread all this content that they generate?

Without a doubt, both Twitch and YouTube are the main places where streamers broadcast their content. However, the streamer phenomenon has always been linked mostly to the Twitch channel.

Twitch was born in 2011, and in just over three years, it outdid its competitor, Justin.tv. Its success multiplied and was acquired by Amazon in 2014. In February 2020, Twitch had more than 3.8 million streamers, with 15 million regular daily viewers.

 

How do streamers get money through Twitch?

There are three sources of income from streamers. The first and most apparent is the channel sponsors. Usually, when a large number of users follow a streamer, a business pays to advertise through the player’s channel. These advertising campaigns are very popular, because the company knows exactly the amount of exposure they will get.

Moreover, there are also subscriptions. These subscriptions, as we saw above, usually grant some improvements to users who enter in exchange for a monthly fee. The most common enhancements include removing ads from the screen, including extra smileys or having your comments appear in highlights.

Finally, streamers can also raise money through one-off donations. These vary from $ 1 to as much as the user wants. The most significant contribution of all time was made to the well-known streamer Ninja, and it reached a whopping $ 100,000. Of course, this was for charity, as the money was going to a children’s hospital. After the stream, Ninja managed to raise 2.7 million dollars for the hospital.

  

The Most Popular Streamers

Since the appearance of the Twitch platform, the number of people who stream and share their videos has increased dramatically. More and more people want to get into the profession, which also translates to more popularity and exposure.

Below is a list of the ten most popular streamers in the world, taking into account their followers on Twitch, using the well-known social media management tool Socialblade.

It is necessary to clarify that, as you know, Ninja has just changed Twitch for another streaming platform called Mixer. But, even so, we have included him for being, without a doubt, the most influential creator of live content in the world and for continuing to be the most followed streamer on Twitch despite no longer using it.
