    He's a livestreamer on Twitch and is making over $50k per month. Yesterday he used a new donation program (which lets you include a YouTube link in your donation and then the clip will play on the stream for all tens of thousands of people to see / listen to). People seemed to like this new donation program so he earned a total of $18k in donations and on top of that he gained over 1200 subscribers.

    I'd say he has a pretty good salary considering all he does is playing video games which he enjoys all day long. :)

    Yeah, these streamers are making bank right now.

    But its not as easy as it seems, not everyone is entertaining in front of a camera.

    Yea, he's been streaming for a very long time. Many years. I guess its pretty simple to succeed on Twitch; either be a girl with boobs and make webcam size cover 2/3 of your screen. Or be funny. Or entertaining. Or good at the game you play.

    For 3 minutes this douche just talked about how much money he made and how it's not going to be refunded.

    You people who donate are retarded.

    Unless you are in professional scene, you must be entertaining to kids, or be a girl.

    a friend of mine started, and to be honest he is not one of the most funny or entertaiment persons that i know. he tries really hard and fails.
    but you know what, the people like this, some make fun of this fact others are amused by the fact that he isnt funny.
    he started as a small streamer without botting and stuff like this and dont ask me why or how but he started to gain a group of followers that started to spend money on his streams. he made in a few days allready 700$. i think its not so easy but also not very hard to earn money this way just play in HD and do like you care about the viewers and soon it will start with donations.

    if you are a girl dont worry just setup your stream overlay 80% boobs 10% donation goal 10% gameplay. money starts to rain and you know why xD

    Girls are capitalizing on the fact that almost every boy is fixated on the dream of finding a 'GAMER' girl. Girl or boy, a gamer is a gamer. Do you think girls who are into boys who play video games call them gamer boys? No. We made the girl streamers who they are. There are a few streamers who look pretty, sure, but boy do they play some good dota. It sucks how a male can be really entertaining and make people laugh like crazy, but he'll never earn the same amount in 2 months that a girl with big boobs will by simply wearing a cosplay dress and not playing anything at all.

    By all means this is good, but typically hardcore gamers reward themselves too excessively before they make it big.

    Once you know how to win 98% pvp success it'll always get easy to provide to an audience as most live streamers talk the same big idea (game updates.) as always.

    The real skill is in how they play.

    This sector is currently booming due to markets opening up across English speaking countries and that guy does know fans love that kind of language when used the right way.

    This is one small cut out of the thousands on thousand of hours he has streamed.

    He entertains people and they donate.

    He mentioned the refund thing because people like to donate then chargeback but with this new method the company will fight all chargebacks so it cant be refunded.

    I personally enjoy watching Summit1g because hes a decent player at everything plus hes funny sometimes and gives good advice about literally everything.

    I never donated though but I don't see what's wrong with it tbh

    Yea Chance has been donated lots before. I forget the username but one guy donated like $40k spread out to a few streamers in one day. Chance isn't the best at games, but he gets all the plebs of the internet that are banned on every other stream so they go to his. But they are loyal.

    How can donations not be refunded? What if the cardholder makes a dispute to their issuer with reason being abuse of their card? Surely the money have to be refunded right? Or are there other rules at play here?

    I watched him playing live in blackjack rooms with high stakes, and every second he has 5$ donation, literally every second, when he lose he make some scene, he break some chairs and stuff, you can watch some of his hands on YT.

    If its abuse of the card its a totally different matter, it looks like twitch is banning people for asking for a refund when they knowingly donated.
