Mysterious Twitch group donate insane amount of cash to struggling streamers

A group called TheDiscordBoyz is donating thousands of dollars to Twitch streamers in an effort to pay it forward to people who have helped spread positivity to their communities and are in need of some extra cash.

Small streamers have been getting rewarded with lots of money by a new group of viewers just by providing a positive impact in the community they are in.

This group of viewers calls themselves TheDiscordBoyz, and there have already been a plethora of donations handed out to streamers who have all shown great appreciation.

Who did they donate to?

One in particular that stands out is their support of streamer ‘AbbiStar’ who was in need of eye surgery. 

The group was able to come through with a $2,000 donation to help her reach her goal so she wouldn’t have to worry about raising the money herself, something she responded to with tears of happiness and shock.

AbbiStar received an additional $1,000 donation from the group just to celebrate her Streamaversary, and for making World of Warcraft watchable for them.

However, Abbi isn’t the only streamer being donated to by the group – they’ve also helped some other smaller ones out too.

Twitch streamer Heaven received a $1,001 donation from the DiscordBoyz to help her get to TwitchCon 2019.

“What? What? What?” she said once the donation hit. “Oh my god, did you mean to do that? Is that an accident? Was that a mistake? Oh my god, I’m gonna cry. I’m not gonna cry.”

Who makes up the group?

TheDiscordBoyz make up a stream team consisting of kaelanDori, MegaGremlin, Jimbojp, Soul_Claim, PottsieTV, and Majorhapppypants who host a podcast together, as well as hanging out in many streams.

It’s clear the group has brightened a lot of streamers’ days, but what we don’t know is who the generous users will help next.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
