The streamer makes 1 to 1 on the bits cheered on the channel. The buyer can get deals for buying more bits in bulk but it still equals a 1 to 1 on the streamers side (in USD).

Because 9999 out of 10000 people go into in with the wrong mindset, they think its easy money and treat it as a hobby
Alexander Matta (9 days ago)
Uh cause 9999 out of 10000 people will make jack shit as a streamer, while the unemployment rate for engineers is less than 5%

I stream for fun and I wanna entertain people but It would be pretty cool to earn $10 from it
Miss Sin (29 days ago)
You're going to sit there and act like 3-5k a month isnt anything? I make $277 at my job that pays 10 an hour to do full time weeks. I would CRY if I made that much a month!
Zachary Baker (15 days ago)
3-5k is decent money but it's hardly breaking the bank. It's pretty comparable to some starting wages for some bachelor degree jobs. It's certainly a lot for playing video games though.
Bobby Amdro (29 days ago)
I tried my best to stream allll fucking day and make money...instead i stsrted my own swimming pool business and get paid wayyyy more and almost every week than this...i made the right choice to get my pool license, electrical and contracting license all in one year..i still play games, just not as much, real life is better.
