At my last job I earned a bit under $2000 a month... Of course $5000 is a LOT of money.

Why watch?

When I play MMOs and queue for PVP or group finder, its something to keep me occupied during the wait.

You can also learn from it by watching high level players playing what you play (SC2 especially, but goes for any PVP game.



Why people donate?

No idea...

Kid got gifted $10k in that video and is like "this is the most money I ever saw".

I made that Ebaying level 50 accounts in Everquest in like a month in 1999 not counting individual items.


I'm sure that was a very rewarding and personally fulfilling career for you.


Success = (Income / work) = reward

Scrubs live by arbitrary rules like what does and does not constitute a "real career".

Why do people tip? Because you enjoyed their service. It's the same concept. Sites that stream are an entertainment service and if you support a particular person or persons you might tip them to keep them going. Because these people don't do it got free and they depend on money to support themselves.

I'd say twitch is easier to make money off of than youtube at this point. I see people streaming as their job and they only get 50-100 viewers. I know they're not making ridiculous money but some of the streamers with thousands of viewers at all times are making thousands of dollars a month. I have no idea why people donate but it's great that they do.

Oh god I hate tipping. I always forget that people in NYC don't make a living wage. In my country you give 5 euro at most, most people waiting tables are students anyway.

It's not just NYC, it's an American thing. I wish it would go away.

In the usa most people waiting tables that is their full time job and they're not students. They make less than 3 an hour and live off tips. If you don't leave a tip they don't make enough to live.
