According to the Little Loans organization , which has analyzed who are the 100 gamers who earn the most money, the last of them would be generating 30,363 dollars per year only in subscriptions . In it, there are Spaniards like:
- Rubius, ranked 54th with 2.7 million subscribers and earnings of $322,000 a year .
- Alexelcapo, in 71st place, with just over half a million subscriptions and earnings of $187,000 .
- TheGrefg, at 94th with 1.3 million subscribers and $55,000 in profits each year .
The top 10 positions are occupied by :
- Nickmers, with a million and a half profits.
- Tfue, 1.4 million.
- Tim The Tatman, 1.3 million.
- DrDisrespect, xQcOW, MOONMOON, Summit1G and AdmiralBahroo, with similar earnings slightly above €1 million.
- DrLupo, earning $995,000 a year.
- MontanaBlack88, with $825,000 a year.
The absences of Ninja and Shroud stand out , who left this platform to sign for Mixer , one of the new rivals. The first, who rose to fame thanks to Fortnite , signed for the company with a salary of between 20 and 30 million, according to Justin Warden, president of an esports player representation agency .
It is necessary to point out that these benefits are entirely through user subscriptions, to which the sponsorships of the different brands and advertisements should be added, so the figures could be much more bulky .
To find the first woman on this list , you would have to go to number 24, a position held by Amouranth, who has just under 1.3 million subscribers and generates half a million dollars each year.
Despite not appearing on the list, there are other Spanish streamers who also have a legion of followers , according to data from Twitch Metrics :
- Auronplay, with an average of 46,240 viewers in the last month and almost 250,000 followers.
- DjMaRiio, 11,552 media viewers.
- Ibai, con 10.278 viewers.

In recent weeks, the streaming of the professional League of Legends player Carlos Camino ‘CarritosKami’ has been highlighted, who organizes the popular program El Chiringuito de la SLO , a kind of talk show where players from the Orange Super League participate to talk about how it has gone the day and discuss the best assets of the championship.
What began as a small chat between a few has ended up becoming a true media echo of electronic sports in Spain, with even international travel, as revealed by the substitute support of Team Vitality, Jakub Skurzyński ‘Jactroll’, who has responded several times to information that was poured into the program.
And it is no coincidence that it is succeeding on Twitch , since League of Legends was once again the most watched video game on the platform after Fortnite unseated it the previous year. With 1,117,373,196 hours watched, LoL regained its lead. Sources: https://themicroblogging.com
Twitch began to gain traction when content creators began to complain about YouTube’s monetization system . From that moment on, many decided to move and take advantage of its subscription and donation system. Some, like Wismichu, confessed that they charged more from the second than from the first, despite the fact that the number of visits was enormous. With this controversy, the video platform lost many gamers .
But Twitch is gradually losing its monopoly on video game streaming: Lolito Fernández, one of the streamers with the most followers in Spain, announced in August that she would stop using that tool to switch to Facebook Gaming , the social network’s commitment to fight Amazon and attract a very specific target audience.
The streaming war is served: Twitch, Facebook Gaming, Mixer and Youtube Gaming. Last year, they all managed to increase their visit numbers: 20%, 210%, 149% and 16%, respectively. Even so, the market share is held by the first , with 73%, somewhat less than previous years, which suggests that in the coming times we will live a fierce fight to become the king of streaming.
