Popular content creator Sykkuno has become the fastest-growing streamer on Twitch, after building a massive following from entertaining variety streams, Among Us, and collaborations on his channel.

Although he has been streaming for many years, Sykkuno has seen a massive jump in popularity in recent months, pulling in tens of thousands of viewers during each of his broadcasts.

The soft-spoken streamer’s rise first began through the star-studded Among Us lobbies, and much like fellow content creator Corpse Husband, his unique voice captured the attention of new viewers on Twitch, which he has converted into a hardcore audience.

Sykkuno has also been living with the OfflineTV members in recent months but after recently leaving the content house, he has revealed his plans to consistently entertain fans with a variety of content, such as Among Us, Minecraft streams, and more.

Sykkuno has become known for streaming games like Minecraft and Among Us.

The Twitch star has also collaborated with some of the top gaming creators during his rise to fame, playing with the likes of Valkyrae, Disguised Toast, and even James Charles in previous streams.

Now that his hard work is finally paying off, it was revealed that Sykkuno was actually the fastest-growing streamer on Twitch in early December, after gaining over 620,000 followers in the last 30 days, according to TwitchMetrics.

Botted followers skew stats

While there are some channels that have gained millions of followers in the last month, the top four streamers, including G2 content creator Heelmike, have all been victims of a follow bot that has been circulating. As Sykkuno is currently ranked in fifth behind these botted channels, excluding the official Twitch page, he technically holds the title as the fastest-growing creator on Twitch, in the last 30 days.

Sykkuno edged ahead of popular Spanish streamers like AuronPlay and G2’s Ibai Llanos, who have also seen massive growth in 2020, to claim the top spot.

The Twitch streamer is showing no signs of slowing down either, as he is continuing to pump out content after hitting such an incredible milestone.

Twitch streamer receives $2,000 donation to literally show her toes

Twitch streamer ImJasmine bizarrely received a $2,000 donation while live, as one viewer ensured she reached her donation goal to show her feet on stream. Yes, you read that right. 

Viewers often use Twitch donations to support content creators, offering a financial thank you for the entertainment they provide. While they’re usually fairly wholesome and small, some viewers shock streamers with their generosity.

In a rather outlandish display of generosity, one viewer donated $2,000 to ImJasmine after she set the donation goal as the total required for her to get her feet out on stream.

While the Toronto-based streamer probably had quiet hopes of reaching her goal, she probably wasn’t expecting it to come entirely from one donor. “It has to be expensive,” she said, while discussing the goal with her chat. “Guys, I’m sorry, okay. No one’s gonna watch me after you’ve seen my toes. I’m literally gonna lose a million – everybody. Never again will you guys watch me!”

After setting the target, Jasmine was at $0 raised when a viewer decided they would fund it single-handedly. The user – ‘RebildTV’ – came out of nowhere to donate $2,000, much to the surprise of the streamer.

Upon seeing the value of the donation, Jasmine burst into laughter, and couldn’t quite contain her shock: “Oh my god! Oh my f**king god… Thank you so fricking much. Holy f**k. Oh my f**king god, okay. Everyone clap or something.”

For those interested, Jasmine did indeed keep her side of the deal and get her feet out on stream. Despite her obvious embarrassment, the donor was rewarded for their generosity.

“3, 2, 1… lift off,” Jasmine said, before turning the camera to her feet. A few teasing comments came through, but most viewers laughed the incident off as the strange moment it was.

Despite her joking, Jasmine has not lost significant numbers of followers, sitting at 116,000 at the time of writing. Many actually commended her for keeping her side of the deal.

It’s certainly not the most bizarre streamer to viewer interaction we’ve ever seen. Ultimately, it’s just another day on the internet.
