Summit1g is an old hat when it comes to Twitch. In 2017, he was the most watched streamer on the platform. You might know him as the guy who turned his monitor on, or you can follow him because he’s really entertaining, but you won’t know how much he makes from the content he produces. During the recent anonymous Twitch hack, part of Summit1g’s revenue was revealed, and that’s what we’ve covered for you here.
While not the most watched content creator of the year, Summit1g still brings home a living wage every month. Between August 2019 and October 2021, he received a total of $ 5,847,541.17. This equates to roughly $ 216,575.60 per month, although obviously he will have certain times of the year when he earns more and others where he earns much less. Still, even with around 40% to set aside for taxes, it’s still modest income for the streamer.
This figure is just Twitch’s revenue based on subscriptions, bits, and ads on its streams. This does not include any donations from an external source, sales of merchandise, or sponsorship deals he may have made. At the time of writing, Summit1g has 38,395 followers, according to Twitch Tracker.
Summit1g currently spends most of its time streaming various online games such as GTA Online and Valorant. The competitive shooter has certainly helped raise his profile, but it’s his particular brand of entertainment that viewers seem to appreciate more than anything else.
