When Tfue burst onto the scene in 2014, he wasted in no time in establishing himself as a massively popular content creator. Within a relatively short period of time, he’d become one of the leading Call of Duty and Fortnite streamers on Twitch. Today, he’s remarkably popular and has an enormous following, but what exactly is Tfue’s net worth?
|Net Worth:||$6 million|
|Real Name:||Turner Tenney|
|Date of Birth:||January 2, 1998|
|Twitch followers:||10.5 million|
Turner Tenney, otherwise known as Tfue, had amassed more than ten million Twitch followers by mid-2021. He’d also twelve million subscribers on YouTube, giving him an incredible and highly populated fan base. It’s here that the majority of his money is earned, through Twitch subscriptions and donations, and ad revenue. As more people follow and engage with Tfue, he earns much more money.
At the start of 2021, Tfue turned just 23 years of age, but he’d already made a fortune through gaming.
What Is Tfue Net Worth?
As of August 2021, Tfue net worth is reportedly worth some six million dollars. His esports and streaming journey, combined with his gaming skill, ensured that he became very wealthy, very quickly. He has won plenty of money through gaming victories, such as in 2020, when he won a Warzone tournament worth $50,000.
At one point, Tfue became more popular than Ninja in terms of overall hours of viewership. However, it’s almost a certain fact that Tfue won’t overtake Ninja’s net worth. The remarkably popular, bright-haired streamer has amassed a reported net worth of $25 million. Once upon a time, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins claimed he was earning more than $500,000 a month through streaming and gaming.
Although, Ninja has slowed down in recent months, and he’s thirty years of age, meaning Tfue has seven years on him to catch up. Can he have a higher net worth by the time he reaches Ninja’s age today?
What Is Tfue’s Salary?
For many professional gamers and full-time streamers, there’s no such thing as a strict salary. They won’t be able to write a figure down on a piece of paper and have it consistent like a traditional worker would be able to. Instead, their earnings will ebb and flow as time goes on, sometimes earning a little more, and sometimes a bit less.
However, one constant for these top-tier gamers and streamers is that they tend to earn a lot. Therefore, they avoid some of the complications that come with not having a traditional, full-time job. They’ll have more assets and much more capital than the average person, and through platforms like Twitch and YouTube, they’ll enjoy a steady stream of almost passive income.
For example, it was estimated in 2019 that Tfue was earning around $150,000 a month from Twitch subscribers. This is mostly passive income, as all Tfue has to do to generate it is sit on stream and play his videogames. It was also estimated that Tfue was earning approximately $25,000 a month from YouTube viewership. All of this income has contributed massively to Tfue “salary” or net worth.
How Else Does Tfue Make Money?
Like many other streamers, Tfue has signed contracts for endorsements, partnerships, and sponsorships. He’ll promote items or services in exchange for products or financial gains. He has also been a member of Fortnite’s Support-A-Creator platform for some time. Whenever a player purchases an item in the Fortnite store, they can use the Tfue code, and Tfue himself will recieve a small portion of the purchase value. This deal came out after Tfue had established himself as one of the best Fortnite players.
Finally, Tfue will earn a considerable sum of money from literal donations from fans. At any point, live on stream, fans can donate ‘bits’, or actual currency to Tfue, and it’ll go straight into the bank. Although everybody knows Tfue is quite wealthy, fans are still willing to part ways with a little money out of recognition or praise to their favourite streamer.
