One of Twitch’s top streamers has shared details on how much he earned in just 12 months, and you might want to consider a career change.

While it’s difficult to make a living streaming games online, one Twitch star has revealed what can be achieved if you manage to reach the upper echelons of popularity.

Canadian streamer xQc, real name Félix Lengyel, is one of the most popular streamers on the platform with over 12 million followers. He now streams across Twitch and Kick, after signing a two-year non-exclusive deal with the rival platform worth over $100 million.

xQc was quizzed about his income during an interview with content creator NateStakkzz, who often conducts interviews with people he encounters on the street about their jobs.

After an introduction, the interviewer asked xQc what is the most amount of money he’s earned through his nine years of streaming.

‘I think it’s public, right?’ he replied. ‘Yeah it was leaked. It was like 9.’

When asked to clarify what he meant, xQc confirmed he earned $9 million (£7.1 million) in a single year through streaming – although he doesn’t specify when.

xQc later cited ‘people’ as the biggest obstacle he’s faced during his career, adding: ‘People are s****y a lot of times you know, so like, finding like who cares about you, enemies, family, friends. Picking and choosing.’

While xQc could be downplaying his overall income, which may not including sponsorship and merchandise sales, the number does somewhat line up with other popular streamers.

According to Forbes, Ninja, the most followed personality on Twitch, earned $17 million (£13.4m) overall in 2019, while TimTheTatman earned $8 million (£6.3m).

Despite the high income, Twitch stars don’t always have it easy when it comes to playing games. Last month, xQc was banned from a popular DayZ server simply because of his huge fanbase, although this does come after many, many other bans for knowingly breaking the rules.
