Various notable streamers from around the world have managed to garner large communities of viewers in the past decade or so. The number of followers and subscribers on platforms such as Twitch and YouTube is one of the easiest and most direct ways of gauging a streamer’s success.
In most cases, the majority of a streamer’s income comes from the ads that the platforms run on their channels. The donations that they receive on the other hand are mostly in small amounts, and might even be as low as $1. However, sometimes, Twitch streamers end up getting rather huge donations that can prove to be life changing.
