How Many Twitch Followers Do you Need to Make Money? While there is no golden number of followers where you start making money the real answer lies in your concurrent viewers. If you are holding an average of 15-20 viewers for the duration of a stream it is quite common to pick up 1-2 subs and a few bits each stream. When purchasing Bits on the website using your desired payment method, there may be times where you encounter an error, and are unable to complete the purchase. Below are the most common reasons that this can happen, along with the most successful troubleshooting steps.

Live Trading Together on Twitch

Hi Apiary Family,

I just started live trading on Twitch yesterday (a streaming platform). I think it would be a great place for us to trade together - share ideas and discuss strategy live. It won't be like when Shawn is trading live, it will be more of a 'learn from each other' type environment, not 'learn from the master.'

If you want to come trade with me each morning, I'll be trading at the start of the US market open for around two hours (8:00 am - 9:45 am EST). You can join the stream here!:

See you there,

Isaac


Can you trade twitch bits for real money onlineMany people think that making a living off of streaming video games sounds easy. However, most professional gamers are extremely hard workers that put a great deal of time and effort into what they do. Many Twitch streamers spend a lot of energy on honing their gaming tactics, planning their streaming sessions, and keeping things interesting for their viewers.

Some gamers find that with enough persistence, their hard work finally pays off. Some Twitch streamers are even fortunate enough to have donations fall right into their laps! You’re probably wondering what the biggest donations are that some lucky streamers have gotten. Today we’ll look at 5 of the largest Twitch donations in the world, and learn about the gamers who received them.

Rumored to be a wealthy oil tycoon from Dubai, the Twitch user known only as “Amhai” hasn’t hesitated to give astoundingly high donations to his favorite game streamers. Popular Hearthstone streamer Lea “LegendaryLea” May was thrilled when she saw the donation from Amhai, which people suspect is exactly what he likes to see. Amhai’s tactic is often to start “small,” giving donations of just a few thousand dollars. If the streamers receive the gifts gracefully and appreciatively, he may continue to donate.

LegendaryLea has reportedly been playing video games since she was only five, starting out with games like Super Mario. Her first MMORPG was EverQuest.
