Even with the recently achieved Content Creator of the Year crown at The Game Awards, it may still come as a surprise to some just how much money Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter is making off of YouTube. Due to a leak of her own accidental doing on a recent broadcast, fans now know how much money she’s been making recently.
The 100 Thieves content creator showed a whopping $172,908.21 as what she’s earned in the last 28 days which was 6% less than she’d done in the previous month. If she maintains roughly those numbers, she’s earning around $2 million on YouTube revenue alone per year.
It’s worth noting that this number is based on only her video views and doesn’t include other forms of monetization.
Adding in sponsorship deals, merchandise, and other revenue streams, the 28-year-old is bringing in some mighty big dollars. According to Ryan Wyatt, YouTube’s Head of Gaming, Valkyrae “is the fastest growing live streamer in the entire world, and now the biggest female gaming streamer in the world,” as of October 16th when he made the tweet.
