According to Social Blade, his YouTube earnings can be anything between $375 to $6k per month. However, considering he regularly pulls in more than a million views per month, he should be earning about $60 to $70k per year. This is in addition to the 17,000 odd Twitch subscribers that result in the majority of his content-related earnings.
Overall, his Twitch and YouTube earnings should add up to around $600k per year. This is in addition to the unknown salary that he pulls from NRG eSports.

Sodapoppin’s streaming career
Sodapoppin started off as a World of Warcraft streamer and used to stream on the Xfire platform, which was shut down back in August 2016. After garnering an initial following on the platform, he switched to Twitch in 2012, and until 2017 had no more than a million followers.
In 2014 and 2015 Sodapoppin took a break from Twitch streaming to focus on online gambling. He would stream blackjack tournaments for hours together on different casino websites, and would regularly end up betting thousands of dollars. Never particularly adept at gambling, Sodapoppin lost a $5000 hand back in April 2015 in front of thousands of viewers. With time, he switched back to Twitch and has over the years tried his hand at a number of video games.
Sodapoppin has streamed games such as GTA V, Dead by Daylight, and Overwatch in recent years. He also regularly hosts various “IRL” streams where he gives viewers a peek into his everyday life. Sodapoppin’s almost cult status has resulted in a huge following on Twitter as well. He has 572k followers on Twitter and posts regular updates about himself.
Sodapoppin is not a professional gamer, and most notably eliminated Dr. Disrespect from the H1Z1 invitational tournament back in October 2017. According to Twitch Tracker, he has to date streamed for a total of 9,119 hours, and regularly streams for around 8 hours every day. He has registered a peak viewership of around 110,000 viewers on Twitch and has had a total of 357 million views.
Earnings as a Youtuber
As mentioned earlier, Sodapoppin regularly registers over 1 million views per month. YouTube offers anything between $2-$5 for every thousand monetized views on the platform, This puts its monthly earnings from the platform at around $6-$7k, although there are quite a few variables involved on YouTube. This includes ad-blockers, whether the user is skipping ads, and some other factors.
Earnings via Twitch streaming
Considering Sodapoppin has one of the largest following on Twitch, it makes sense that around half of his total yearly income comes from the platform. The donations that he receives from his fans also make for a large chunk of his earnings. Sodapoppin has around 7,000 subscribers, a number rose to as high as around 22,000, back in February 2019. Regardless, his overall earnings from Twitch streaming should be over $400k per year.
Other Sponsorship deals
Sodapoppin has revealed little to no information about the extent of the sponsorship and other deals that he has signed over the years. During his gambling-streaming days, Sodapoppin would regularly host partnered streams with different gambling websites, most notably BetOnline.ag. Additionally, he was the co-owner of Northern Gaming and is now an adviser and part of the ownership group at NRG eSports.
Again, Sodapoppin has not released a lot of information about the overall expenditure that he incurs. He lives in Austin, Texas, and is known for his hilarious personality and whacky behavior during his streams. Sodapoppin appears to live a flamboyant lifestyle, regularly attends various Twitch events. Back in 2017, Sodapoppin revealed that his gaming house had burned down, leading to a flurry of large donations from concerned viewers. However, he announced on Twitter in June that he had bought a new house. No further details are known about the kind of expenditure that he incurs on a regular basis.

He has been banned multiple times by Twitch for indulging in “hate speech.”
Back in July 2015, he posted on Twitter his opinion about female streamers who hardly streamed video-games on Twitch. He was of the opinion that female streamers who are not good at gaming should rather stick to other platforms such as YouTube. The post was met with scrutiny from the online community. Sodapoppin did not want such female streamers to be considered “Twitch streamers.”
In July 2020, Sodapoppin was temporarily suspended because one of his VRchat streams involved some inappropriate “sexual material.” One of the in-game characters was wearing clothing that was considered “revealing.” This led to a sarcastic apology by Sodapoppin, as he hilariously explained the reason behind his Twitch ban.
