He had just begun his daily livestream and was about five minutes into it. As he sipped his morning coffee and got ready to stream, he revealed to his audience in his Twitch chat about a recent deal he was offered.

Like the recent trend of promoting NFTs and cryptocurrency coins through internet influencers and content creators, the Canadian streamer, too, was roped into an offer that had a huge amount of sponsorship money attached to it. As he continued to speak about it, the streamer mentioned:

“The amounts are astronomical!”

The streamer then went on to say how fun it was denying the NFT sponsors:

“It was even more fun to tell them no.”

Taking a sip of his coffee, the streamer pondered if it was safe to talk about the deal on stream:

“I don't even know if I should talk about it. I don't think we should talk about it.”

But instantly, he went on to detail the intricacies of the deal and mentioned what all was required from him:

“Okay, watch this. Okay. Overlay, shoutout and visits for five minutes and three tweets. $1.2 million. Holy! That’s a f***ing racket. That is a f***ing racket if I’ve ever seen one.”

He joked after the revelation about how the sponsors would end up paying the streamer in JPEGs. He quickly moved on from the topic and went on with his stream as usual.
