news culture Twitch: Sardoche’s insane income estimate on Twitch after his marathon!
Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon, allows users to earn money based on their status (affiliate, partner). Subscriptions, pieces and donations are part of the income generated directly, but it is also possible to carry out commercial operations. In other words, it’s rare, but you can make a lot of money.
A new study shows that over 95% of streamers only have 5 viewers or less, far from what is needed to hope to survive from the event, signing agreements with Twitch, winning juicy commercial operations, despite the example, the enthusiasm and the relentless videographers. However, a small fraction of streamers manage to generate enough income to survive on itlike Sardoche, Andréas Honnet.
A live subathon from South Korea
Specializing in League of Legends since 2014 while regularly playing other titles and chess, the streamer has a large community. But Sardoche divided, either because of some statements or his outbursts during the games. Many times suspended from the Twitch platform, he ended up will travel to South Korea to face local players and away from the western servers, where it can be vcaused by acts aimed at the decay of its parts.
Long delayed by the pandemic, the journey began in the spring, and has just begun a sabaton. The principle of this subathon is simple in the sense that the operation is launched with a duration of 24 hours of streaming, and is extended by one minute with each additional subscription for two weeks. A concept of Ludwig’s popularity, which recorded a record of 283,061 subscribers.
And as many say that for Sardoche, the operation was a great success, so even the streamer showed that he did everything to stop it, without success for a while. In general, the Sardoche subathon lasted 277 hours, that is 11 days and 12 hours! Games, chess games, rest and walks in Seoul, the daily Sardoche newspaper therefore broadcast for more than 10 days, a tiresome operation:
So here what I’m trying to do is get people off my stream actually, get them to stop subbing and I can go to sleep to get better for Japan. So, I have been playing chess for 3 days. And sometimes I sleep to rest. And it never works.
11 days of streaming, and a huge income estimate!
A tiring but lucrative and successful operation, as Sardoche announced that its 11-day, 12-hour Subathon created 15,180 paid subscriptionthe subs, thus completing most of the objectives set up.
The live has ended, after 277 hours, or 11 days and 12 hours.
Thank you very much, all goals are lost.🤍
In total, 15180 subs are given/offered to keep the clock going (1 per minute)
I won’t do it again anytime soon but it was amazing 😢
Thank you 🤍 pic.twitter.com/Z2zFC3hzq1

But then, how much did Sardoche earn from this river. unfortunately, can only be estimatedTwitch partners, depending on the importance of their community and their aura, who can direct sales on Twitch about profit sharing. Based on a distribution at 50-50 subscriptions, which cost €3.99 for several months, the streamer would have pocketed no less than €30,284 !
A large amount, ignoring possible sponsors, more expensive tier 2 and 3 subscriptions, or commercial operations in progress. It is also likely that the real amount is higher, but unless Sardoche directly gives the amount, we can only guess. After this long marathon, the streamer flew to Japan where he arrived on July 31.
I have a lot to do to prepare for my trip to Japan, and I shouldn’t be able to stay until the end of the 14 days, so that’s a big relief for me. It was a good way to end the Korea arc to keep a good memory. I think this trip allowed me to do a great job of questioning many things. I now know what is good for me and I have all the tools to start again on a good basis to offer you the best streams in the future. I’m there, he said on Twitter.
