Many Twitch Streamers don’t charge the minimum wage, and 3 new takeaways from Twitch Hack.
There are some caveats to consider. On the one hand, the growing number of streamers do not live in the United States, which means that the cost of living varies widely. In addition, some streamers have disputed the leaked payment data, and even setting it aside, it only extends to specific sources of monetization twitch, such as subscriptions. Increasingly, streamers make money by bargaining with brands and playing games selected by sponsors. This type of partnership is not reflected in Twitch’s numbers, which means things aren’t as scary as they’re looking for some streamers. Still, it’s not just anyone who has access to brand deals. At Twitch, success leads to success, but the road to this point is long, difficult and unconquerable for many.
