news culture Twitch: The crazy estimate of Sardoche’s earnings on Twitch after his marathon!
Twitch, a streaming platform owned by Amazon, allows users to earn money based on their status (affiliate, partner). Subscriptions, bits and donations are part of the directly generated income, but it is also possible to carry out commercial operations. In other words, it’s rare, but you can make a lot of money.
A recent study showed this over 95% of streamers only had 5 viewers or less, far from what it takes to hope to make a living from the activity, sign deals with Twitch, win juicy commercial operations, despite the agency, motivation and relentlessness of the videographers. However, a small fraction of streamers manage to generate enough income to make a livinglike Sardoche, Andréas Honnet.
A live subathon from South Korea
The streamer has specialized in League of Legends since 2014, while regularly playing other titles and chess, and has a large community. But Sardoche Share, whether because of certain statements or his outbursts during matches. Several times suspended from the Twitch platform he ended up travel to South Korea to meet local players and move away from western servers where it would be vcharacterized by actions aimed at rotting its parts.
Long delayed by the pandemic, the journey was able to begin this spring and recently began a subathon. The principle of this subathon is quite simple in the sense that the operation is launched for a duration of 24 hours of streaming and is extended by one minute with each additional subscription within two weeks. A popularity concept by Ludwig, who set a record with 283,061 subscribers.
And so much to say that for Sardoche the operation was a great success, so much so that even the streamer indicated that he did everything to stop it, without success for a while. Total, Sardoche subathon lasted 277 hours, that is 11 days and 12 hours! Games, chess, rest and walks in Seoul, the daily newspaper in Sardoche was therefore broadcast for more than 10 days, an exhausting operation:
So here what I’m trying to do is get people off my stream actually, get them to stop sub and I can go to bed to get in shape for Japan. So I have been playing chess for 3 days now. And sometimes I go to bed to rest. And it doesn’t work at all.
11 days of streaming and a colossal estimate of earnings!
A tiring but lucrative and successful operation, as Sardoche announced that its 11-day, 12-hour Subathon had generated 15,180 paid subscriptionssubs, thus completing most of the set goals.
Life is over after 277 hours or 11 days and 12 hours.
Thank you very much, all goals have been achieved.🤍
A total of 15180 subscribers were given/offered to keep the clock running (1 per minute)
I won’t be doing it again anytime soon, but it was amazing 😢
Thank you 🤍 pic.twitter.com/Z2zFC3hzq1

But how much did Sardoche earn with this subathon. Unfortunately, only an estimate can be madeTwitch partners, depending on the importance of their community and their aura, are able to trade directly with Twitch on profit sharing. Based on a distribution at 50-50 subscriptions, which have cost €3.99 for a few months, the streamer wanted admitted no less than €30,284 !
A colossal sum, does not take into account possible sponsors, more expensive tier 2 and 3 subscriptionsor ongoing commercial activities. It is also likely that the real sum is higher, but unless Sardoche directly provides the amount, we can only estimate. After this very long marathon, the streamer flew to Japan, where he arrived on July 31.
I had a lot of things to do to prepare for my trip to Japan, and I couldn’t have lasted until the end of the 14 days, so this is a great relief for me. It was a great way to end the Korea arc to keep a good memory. I think this trip allowed me to do a huge job of questioning a lot of things. I now know what is good for me and I have all the tools to start again on a good foundation to offer you the best streams in the future. I was there, he said on Twitter.
