Most gamers are familiar with Tfue because of his Fortnite skills. Though both his Twitch and YouTube channels started taking off after the release of Fortnite, Tfue has been a part of the content creating scene for a long time.
Before moving onto gaming, Tfue was a frequent guest on his sibling’s YouTube channel, JOOGSQUAD, doing stunts and extreme sports videos. Tfue later created his own channel, uploading gameplay videos from games like Destiny, Call of Duty, and H1Z1.

To not leave out the higher tiers, we’ll also be using a similar formula and assume that Tfue gets a 70-percent split from each of them.
In addition to donations, ads, and sponsors, streamers also get paid to do sponsored streams. Some developers…
