Donation-wise, Ludwig takes donations in bits and through an external stream elements tip-jar. The minimum you can donate through his tip jar is $3 and Ludwig capped his tip jar at a maximum of $10.
Advertisement-wise, Ludwig doesn’t run many ads on his channel but since he streams to a large audience he still makes a decent monthly sum from this. While Twitch streamers aren’t allowed to talk about their advertisement income (and it likely differs from streamer to streamer) it is estimated that they take home around $10 to even $20 per 1000 viewers. Of course, this is speculation.

How much did Ludwig make from his subathon?
On March 14th, Ludwig started his infamous subathon where he would keep his stream online for 15 more second for every new subscriber he gets. Little did Ludwig know he would later have to change that amount to 10 second per sub and cap the stream at 31 days because it looked like it might actually never end.
This meant that for 31 days straight, Ludwig broadcasted his entire life for millions of people to see. He slept on stream, worked out on stream, watched movies on stream, cooked on stream, ate his meals on stream, and even showered on stream.
Of course, streaming for such a long time, with SO many people watching, everyone tweeting about you, and even reaching the attention of mainstream media, you are bound to make a couple of dollars.
So naturally, people started to wonder how much he made from the subathon, and of course, a Reddit user that goes by u/raddog86 had to do the math for us.
He went all the way and created a spreadsheet counting every single subscriber Ludwig made. Also included in the calculations are the amount Ludwig made from mediashare, donations, and more.
And if you’re wondering how legit this spreadsheet is, Ludwig frequently brought up the spreadsheet on stream and told everyone if and when there was an error to which the owner took notes and corrected the mistakes.
In total, Ludwig made $1,434,850.00 USD from the subathon. Once you take away paying the moderators, donations to charity, the gifted subs, and taxes, Ludwig was left with $209,021.37 USD.
While some believe that he paid his moderations too much money and he gave away too much to charity, Ludwig himself said that the publicity that came from this subathon (and the sponsorships) is worth a lot more than the actual money he made.
How did Ludwig get started?
- Ludwig has always been the class clown, he even won the mister high school competition in his high school for being such a good performer. This was also the moment he realised how much he loved performing.
- Ludwig loved watching Call of Duty YouTubers and it inspired him to purchase an HD PVR capture card and post content to his very first YouTube channel. He later abandoned the project as he felt like he wasn’t being himself in the videos was trying to emulate other YouTubers.
- While attending Arizona State University, Ludwig attempted to join the acapella group, the comedy club, and an improv group, none of which deemed him worthy of joining. At the comedy club audition, he met someone who had the idea of starting their own comedy club full of rejects which Ludwig eventually joined. While it took them a while to take off, when Ludwig’s final semester came around, they were continuously performing in front of over 100 people.
- During college, Ludwig really got into Smash Brothers Melee which was very popular on Twitch. After a while, Ludwig became a commentator for the videogame and dreamed of becoming a Twitch streamer himself. His girlfriend at the time was very much against the idea of video games as a career.
- After breaking up with his girlfriend, Ludwig started attempting Smash tournaments all over the country. This caused Ludwig to meet Slime while commentating together and they became a dynamic duo. At the time, Slime had a podcast called ‘Bad Melee’ and invited Ludwig over. Being on the podcast inspired Ludwig to chase his dreams of creating content.

- On April 20th, Ludwig was fired from Snapchat, this time because the management of Snapchat deemed his team to be unnecessary.
- He then spends an entire month applying to jobs and on May 16th of 2018 he decided to say fuck it and pursue content creation once more. He started streaming on Twitch and had 16 average viewers in the month of May.
- His viewer base would pick up the next month (June 2018) to 25 average viewers and that’s when he started making some money. He made $281 that month from subscriptions.
- In July of 2018 (just three months into streaming!), he had 50 average viewers and made $530 from subscribers.
