As one of the top Twitch streamers, EliasN97 finds his place on this prestigious list.

Playing titles such as Elden Ring, XDefiant, Among Us and EA SPORTS FC, this streamer offers a tonne of variety and explains his claim to success in 2024. In addition, the massive number of hours he puts into his stream is certainly contributing to his success, while forming part of the FOKUS media group.

He remains on this list of highest paid streamers on Twitch year after year.

Another thrilling personality on this list, Tuğkan Gönültaş is a big hit on both Just Chatting and more uniquely, his affinity for Supermarket Simulator.

In addition, Escape the Backrooms was also a massive hit for him.

Averaging 26,864 views in the past month, he has enjoyed a successful peak viewership of 45,312 viewers.

Moving on, Kevin Andreas Teller has impressed so far in 2024 with his thrilling Just Chatting streams paired with Grand Theft Auto V content.

Pushing up to $70,000, he has over 20,000 paid subscribers which he continues to attract thanks to his unique and entertaining streams. Finding success early in 2024, we can’t wait to see if he can maintain this momentum.

Imagine being one of the highest-paid streamers while also enjoying a bit of football.

Accordingly, Gianmarco “Tumblurr” Tocco is a new name in the scene, an Italian streamer who hosts watch parties for football while also entertaining his viewers with the titles of GTA, F1 22 and chess too.

While it’s always great to see new names, can he stay relevant for the year to come?

5. Gaules – $81,684 – $105,727

Next up is another first-person-shooter streamer who’s been grinding Counter-Strike endlessly.

More specifically, the retired professional CS coach and player made the most of the hype around Counter-Strike 2.0, perhaps putting in the most hours out of anything.

With a unique relationship with his Portuguese viewers, Gaules presence in the streaming community has unlimited potential as he continues to be one of the highest paid streamers on Twitch.

As the king of Just Chatting on Twitch, “KaiCenat” earns way over $100,000 thanks to the attention he receives on the platform.

Specifically, he has over 6.5 million hours watched in the past month exclusively on Just Chatting. While he also dabbles in some gaming, his fortune as one of the highest-paid streamers is consistently sourced from his Just Chatting.

Moreover, his massive Airtime is a contributing factor to his massive success – can he keep it up for the rest of the year?

2. Shlorox – $72,666 – $226,825

Relatively new, Shlorox is the newest name in Twitch to rock the tables.

Moreover, he has the most gifted subs in 2024 by a mile, raking in over 83,966 gifted subs in just one month despite being new to the platform.

Catering to a German-speaking audience, he dabbles mainly in Just Chatting and Counter-Strike streams.

Can he keep up this incredible number of gift subs – we’re not sure.

1. Jynxzi – $171,018 – $274,110

Since the start of last year, Jynxzi has steadily climbed the leaderboards on Twitch and has garnered immense popularity for a title rarely seen at this level – Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

Playing multiple other shooter titles, the streamer’s social media presence is also equally impressive and paired with his gift at playing shooter titles, there’s no telling what his true revenue could be through sponsorship deals.

What’s most impressive is that although he’s at the top, he has fewer hours watched than lower entries on this list of highest-paid Twitch streams.

In 2024, he’s amassed almost 100,000 subs within a month – that’s incredible!

How are Streamers Paid on Twitch?

While the steaming industry and esports industry may be approached separately, they are definitely connected. Many esports events make use of ‘co-streaming’, where content creators are allowed to create watch parties and offer an alternative way of watching all the action.

In this regard, Twitch is the leading streaming platform for viewers and content creators. For content creators, monetization is a unique opportunity which involves four main sources of income for the highest-paid Twitch streamers:

  • Bits – Bits are used to Cheer a streamer. Each Bit produces $0.01 for the streamer.
  • Subscriptions – A subscriber pays a Twitch streamer per month to support the channel, either recurring or one-time basis, with multiple Tiers.
  • Ads – Running ads (this revenue is undisclosed)
  • Sponsorships – Promoting products (this revenue is undisclosed)

It’s essential to note that followers are not subscribers – viewers may choose to follow and not subscribe to a Twitch streamer. Also, statistics such as Bits and Subscriptions are public information which we may use to calculate the highest-paid Twitch streamers in 2024, while ads and sponsorships are typically unknown to the public.

Twitch streamers who garner enough popularity on the platform may earn the title of ‘Twitch Ambassador’.

Donating on Twitch is a unique transaction, where viewers have the opportunity to directly support their favourite streamers in a number of ways. You can check out our handy guide to how to donate on Twitch.

With the advent of other initiatives, such as Twitch Channel Points and even Twitch betting, there are even more ways for streamers and their viewers to interact with each other, all of which of course makes Twitch a hugely attractive platform, especially for the highest paid Twitch streamers.
