Asmongold Net Worth and Details of How He Makes His Money on Twitch

Back in the ’80s and ’90s, playing video games wasn’t much of a career but nowadays, many professional gamers have made millions of dollars from streaming their gameplay session on the popular video game streaming platform, Twitch. One of such gamers is Asmongold who has achieved an estimated net worth of $3 million from streaming World of Warcraft gameplay.

He is regarded as one of the most charismatic personalities on Twitch and has also cemented his place among the most-watched streamers, having attained more than 150 million views from his loyal followers of over 1.8 million. In addition to earning from his streaming efforts on Twitch, Asmongold has jacked up his net worth with earnings from his multiple YouTube channels where he uploads his Twitch videos.

Asmongold Has His Gaming Career to Thank for His $3 Million Net Worth

Asmongold whose real name is Zack began playing video games at a very young age. He picked the moniker, Asmongold, which he has stuck with after all the names he wanted to use on Twitch had already been taken. Although he created his Twitch account in 2011, he started streaming World of Warcraft in 2014, a game he began playing in 2006 and has left no stone unturned as his gaming insights and skills have gathered him a viewership of over 150 million.

He also has massive followership of over 1.8 million on the streaming platform and this has enabled the Twitch star to be ranked among the highest-earning streamers in the world. He makes about half a million dollars annually from subscriptions and also, has raked in 6 figures from sponsored streams which other top streamers like Dr. DisRespect, Ninja, and xQc equally benefit from.

Having been active on Twitch since 2014 and also on YouTube where he has gained millions of views through his multiple channels, it’s not surprising that Asmongold’s net worth is estimated at $3 million as of 2020.

A Breakdown of How He Achieved His Huge Net Worth

Following the release of World of Warcraft Classic at the end of August 2019, Asmongold’s popularity on Twitch soared as he became the most-watched influencer on the platform in September 2019 with the most-watched hours of 13.27 million. He has continued to dominate the streaming platform in recent times as his Twitch channel is ranked the 5th most-watched channel, as well as the second most-watched English Channel, and the most-watched World of Warcraft Channel as of this writing.

Consequently, he has been earning massively from subscriptions, donations, sponsorships, and advertisements. Here’s an in-depth look at how much he makes from these income sources as a Twitch partner.

Donations and Subscriptions

As one of the biggest Twitch streamers, Asmongold has greatly increased his net worth with the income earned through donations and subscriptions. He has so far amassed more than 18,000 subscribers who at least subscribe for the Tier 1 package valued at $4.99 per month with automatic renewal. The Tier 2 package costs $9.99 monthly while the cost of the Tier 3 package is $24.99 per month.

Assuming that Asmongold’s over 18,000 subscribers pay $4.99 monthly with Twitch walking away with 50% of the subscription fee which should be around $2.50 per subscriber, Asmongold hence pockets a monthly income of over $45,000. This accumulates to an annual income of over $540,000 from subscription alone. However, there are cases where popular Twitch streamers get from 60% to 100% of the monthly subscription fee and in that case, make big bucks than those that collect 50% of the fee.

In terms of donations, viewers can decide to put money in the pocket of their favorite streamer by donating directly to the steamer through PayPal or Cryptocurrencies. They can also donate bits (Twitch currency) through the cheering feature as they try to cheer the streamer with animated chat emotes which they purchase at specific prices.

Advertisements and Sponsorships

Although Twitch streamers avoid the risk of turning people off by putting too many ads, they often start their streams with a thirty-second ad and equally press the Ad button whenever they want to eat or use the bathroom. They earn cost per mille (CPM), otherwise known as cost per thousand views for the ads, and then make big hits during a major game release. The streamers, however, are not allowed to disclose how much they make off the ads.

Sponsorship, on the other hand, has also been a major revenue stream for top gamers. Once in a while, they are offered hefty paychecks by game developers to play their games on their channels, advertising them to fans. In February 2020, Asmongold stepped up his net worth with over $200,000 he received for a sponsored stream. He also revealed in November 2020 that he was offered more than $300,000 for a sponsored one-day stream.

Only in 2020, the adept gamer pocketed over half a million dollars from sponsored streams and who knows how much he has earned in the past years. Well, it shouldn’t be below 6 figures as Twitch stars like Ninja earns up to $1 million from sponsored streams.

Earnings from YouTube Channels

Before becoming popular on Twitch, Asmongold first made waves on YouTube, having launched his first YouTube channel in 2008. Even though the eminent social media personality is known to have an official YouTube channel called Asmongold TV which he created in December 2019, he reportedly has eight other channels on the social media platform.
