Popular Twitch streamer Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo gave fans a surprise after revealing his true net worth during his January 11 stream.

Mizkif has rapidly grown a large fan base on his Twitch channel over 2019, gaining almost 270,000 new followers throughout the year.

During one of his first streams of the new year in 2020, the Twitch star took the time to host a completely honest Q&A where followers could ask him whatever they wanted.

Mizkif, TwitchMizkif has had a successful year in 2019.

As seen with many other popular content creators, one of the biggest questions fans had was regarding how much money a top Twitch streamer can make.

Although earnings is often a sensitive topic for some streamers, Mizkif seemed happy to reveal what his true net worth was.

“If you wanted to know, I’m worth about half a million dollars, there you go,” the Twitch streamer shared before explaining shortly after that the considerable figure was calculated even after taxes.

Although there were some trolls in his chat highlighting that he was short of being a millionaire, many of his fans were shocked to see such a high number for a streamer who only recently made his rise on Twitch.

However, Mizkif was a little confused by his viewers’ surprise, explaining that they probably could’ve worked it out for themselves without too much trouble.

“I mean let’s be real, if you’re somewhat competent and you grab a calculator, you could probably guess how much I’m worth,” Rinaudo explained, before breaking down how to estimate a streamer’s net worth.

“10,000 subs multiplied by the amount of number I have and times that by twelve, put a couple of donations and sponsors in there and minus taxes, it’s not hard to figure out,” the Twitch star revealed.

Regardless of his success, Mizkif has always given praise to others in the space for their efforts, such as fellow streamer xQc’s incredible year as one of the top streamers on the broadcasting platform.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
