Together Twitch Achieving a huge increase in users over the past few years, many streamers on the platform are earning substantial salary increases from their subscribers. Now, after Twitch’s massive data leak released 125GB of data from platform servers across the web, fans are able to get a sense of how much their favorite streamers are earning from 2019 to 2019.
A popular streamer in the leaked earnings list is Asmongold. Asmongold started streaming around 2014 and is primarily known for playing games like world of warcraft, new world, And Final Fantasy 14. From this, he has been able to garner an impressive position on the platform with over 2 million followers and an average of around 50,000 viewers per stream.
From the initial breach, it was revealed that Asmgold had earned around 19 million since 2019. However, it would later be corrected in a second post on 4chan for about 2.5 million. In response, Asmongold said during a stream that he didn’t care much for the violation, but that his earnings numbers were wrong.
It’s possible that Asmgold was primarily referring to the initial post that said he made $19 million, not aware of the improvements made. Another piece of leak put Asmongold’s earnings for September 2021 at $141,000. If this is true, then his earnings so far this year have become about 15 lakhs. It should be noted that these numbers are before tax and Twitch is not responsible for any money made from donations or sponsorships.
Other important information that was leaked from the leaked Twitch servers was the website’s source code, information about a Steam competitor called Vapor, as well as the earnings of other top creators on the website. Earlier today, Twitch made a post on its Twitter account saying that it is aware of the hack and is working immediately to fix it. Twitch has also promised to update the community as soon as possible and bear with them.
We can confirm a breach has taken place. Our teams are working with urgency to understand the extent of this. We will update the community as soon as additional information is available. Thank you for bearing with us.

Twitch was already in water with creators on the website after the hate raids escalated, so the incident didn’t bode well for the platform immediately after. Fortunately, the leaked information was only the streamer’s earnings and not something more serious like a Social Security number or other personal information. This probably also explains why Asmongold was not pressured too much about the issue. Hopefully, Twitch does something to address the issue soon, find the people responsible, and countermeasures to prevent this from happening again.
