Organizations in esports are constantly seeking online personalities to endorse their brand or products. On his Twitch stream, Mizkif revealed the eyewatering money he turned down to join an organization for two years.

Mizkif has now started his own organization, OTK, but before this, has revealed he was offered over six figures to join an established organization. Nearly every content creator and streamer is supported by sponsors alongside their core community.

Big names like Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel have joined organizations such as Luminosity in the past year, while NICKMERCS represents FaZe Clan.

However, it’s not very often that the details of these sponsorship agreements are shared with the viewers. But, there are certain streamers that choose to be extremely transparent with their audience regarding sponsors, as Mizkif did during his November 5 stream.

Mizkif is one of the most recognizable faces on the Twitch platform.

Mizkif turned down a staggering offer from organization

Mizkif revealed he had turned down an offer of  $600,000 to join an undisclosed organization. This staggering amount of money was offered in return for a two-year contract.

The Twitch star opted to turn down the opportunity and instead decided to form “One True King.” OTK is an organization made up of Twitch streamers aiming to build up a community of like-minded creators. With the likes of Asmongold, Esfand and Mizkif as representatives, the org already has a significant fanbase and reach.

It’s clear Mizkif is not looking for an organization to earn more money: “The reason why I turned it down was because I’d rather not get paid 600 thousand dollars at all… I’d rather take a risk with my friends that I know are good streamers and we build something together that could change the Twitch scene.”

Ultimately, you have to respect Mizkif for putting his community on his channel first. It’s obvious the OTK organization is a passion project for him and his goal is to build something great on Twitch. It will certainly be exciting to keep track of OTK and see what the organization goes onto achieve.

K-Pop star Jae Park from the band Day6 has outlined his thoughts on the pattern of “toxic” behavior from people on the internet, after reacting to hate comments live on a Twitch stream.

Day6 is a hugely popular five member K-Pop group that debuted in 2015, that has since gone on to secure a substantial fan base both in Korea and worldwide.

Jae is a vocalist and electric guitarist for the band, and while he originally grew up in the US, he moved to Korea when he was offered a contract with an entertainment company following his participation in a reality show.

It’s safe to say that the K-Pop industry is a booming one, and with its recent surge in popularity across the globe, a new crop of passionate fans have joined the ever-expanding community to support their favorite artists.

Jae has been making waves on Twitch, and even collaborated OfflineTV.

However, it’s no secret that sometimes things can be taken to the extreme by certain people, leaving the reputation of the industry as a whole at stake. No one is more aware of this than the stars themselves, and in his November 17 stream, Jae shared his thoughts on the issue.

Jae Park shares his opinion on cancel culture

Initially, he shared a hate comment he once received online where somebody said “I like Jae better when he speaks Korean because he has less of an opinion.” Jae responded “isn’t that crazy” and added that “apparently opinions are cancellable offenses now.”

Jae went on to explain that “I don’t think they’re being rude. This is what I think is happening. I think the younger generation is starting to believe that that’s acceptable behavior.”

“The sad truth is that eventually within, I’d say within the next decade, all our faces are gonna be plastered onto our socials. They may be 14, 15, 12, even 20 or 30 now, what happens in ten years when they’re trying to get a job?… And they have this incredible history of toxic behavior plastered on their social media accounts. What happens then?”

He continued, “there’s a certain type of weight attached to that, and eventually, it’s not gonna be karma, it’s gonna be exactly what you said showing up on your feed ten years from now.” The chat was flooded with support for the star, with many who agreed with his point of view.

Jae continues to grow his Twitch following which currently sits at a little over 248,000, playing games like Detroit: Become Human and Among Us.
