Twitch isn’t having the best year in 2021, thanks to a big data breach that occurred recently, complicating things for the Amazon-owned platform. Twitch’s internal AWS services, payouts to streamers, and their encrypted passwords were among the 125 GB of source code data released from the platform.
Over 10,000 streamers’ earnings have been revealed, including xQc, TimtheTatMan, Shroud, and Scump. These are just payout amounts, not total revenues of these streamers, therefore the numbers are staggering. Donations, sponsors, and product sales bring in a lot more money for most streamers.
Twitch has paid xQc an eight-figure salary for the past two years. He has established himself as the purple platform’s frontrunner. Pokimane, a well-known Twitch streamer, has, however, astonished everyone with his Twitch payout leak.
With over eight million followers on Twitch, Pokimane is one of the most popular streams. Imane Anys has amassed a sizable following on Amazon and is often regarded as one of the most politically correct streamers. She is acquainted with a number of other streamers, and the majority of them work together on streams, playing numerous video games at the same time.
Pokimane’s Twitch payout stats from August 2019 to October 2021, on the other hand, are not particularly outstanding. Pokimane appears to have earned only $38,217, according to the September 2021 payout shared by Twitter account KnowSomething. Most of her notable contemporaries, including xQc, Hasanabi, Sykkuno, and mizkif, have landed six-figure Twitch deals. Sykkuno and Hasanabi both have far fewer Twitch followers than Pokimane, but their rewards are double or quadruple hers.
