Imane Anys is better known by her gamer tag “Pokimane” and despite not being the greatest gamer in the world, she has become one of the top stars on popular social media sites like YouTube, Twitter and Tik Tok thanks to her very popular live streams.
She began streaming in 2013 after reaching the Platinum rank in League of Legends and by 2017, she had amassed 450,000 followers, earning the Best Twitch Streamer of the year award. Since then she has established a presence across a variety of social media platforms, hitting one million YouTube subscribers in 2018, and has become one of the most famous and popular female streamers in the industry.

What Is Pokimane Net Worth Now?
Working out how much Pokimane is worth currently is not an easy thing to do, especially when she has turned down some lucrative sponsorship deals in the past (including one reportedly worth around $3 million).
Pokimane has also kept relatively quiet about how much money she makes, but given her exposure across numerous channels, plus the different revenue streams she is able to generate through these due to her various types of content (she also posts real-world videos on Tik Tok for example, alongside her gaming relative streams and content).
Her exclusive deal with Twitch for live streams will certainly make up a considerable chunk of her net worth which we estimate to be around $2 to $3 million.
How Does Pokimane Make Money?
Given that Pokimane doesn’t make vast sums of money from her gaming performance in tournaments and such like, how is she able to generate her income? The answer lies in her appeal to those that follow Twitch streams and other forms of social media, where her likeable personality exudes through her content.
She may not be one of the highest paid gamers in terms of tournament earnings, but her vast range of content remains massively popular.
In 2020, Pokimane signed an exclusivity deal with Twitch to stream on their service and this deal has subsequently been renewed in February 2022. There is no doubt that Pokimane makes a significant proportion of her income from this streaming agreement with Twitch.
She has streamed her performance across a number of popular gaming titles including Fortnite, League of Legends, Valorant, Minecraft and Among Us and on the service she has racked up over 212 million views.
She is one of the most popular and best Valorant streamers.
Through her presence on Twitch and YouTube she has also become a founder of Offline TV, which has proven to be another source of income for her.
All this has made her one of the highest paid Twitch streamers in the world today. Furthermore, if she was to explore the market for betting on Twitch streamers, there’s a good chance that she could increase the amount she makes too.
Alongside her streaming empire, Pokimane also operates a number of YouTube channels including Pokimane, Pokimane Too, Pokimane VODS and Imane. Several of these are dedicated to gaming, with the latest addition, Imane dedicated to more personal topics and non-related gaming videos.
With millions of followers on Twitch and YouTube, Pokimane is also likely to be in receipt of plentiful donations from her followers who want her to go on making content for them to watch.
How much Pokimane makes in donations may be relatively small compared to the amount she will earn through her deals with Twitch, sponsorship and advertising or similar, but it is undoubtedly a useful source of finance.
She has since capped her donations.
As is the case with any popular streamer, advertising can provide a very lucrative stream for the content creator and Pokimane’s various sites and appeal across the demographics mean that she has a wide range of potential markets tuning in to her content. A fact which will certainly appeal to advertisers for a range of different products.
Pokimane herself has said that most of her income comes from “sponsors, investments and exclusive contracts” and given her wide range across varying platforms, that certainly makes sense.
She also earns enough from her current deals to be able to pick and choose which sponsorship deals she wants to accept. She is reported to have turned down a deal worth $3 million with one company because she did not want to work with them.
Add to that further sponsorship deals with companies that provide her with her computing and gaming equipment, such as a deal with Hyper X and it is easy to see that with so many varied revenue streams, why Pokimane has become the world’s most popular female streamer and content creator.
