What is Mizkif’s net worth?

Mizkif, 27, became passionate about gaming at a young age. However, he initially tried to have a completely different career path.

“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,” he said on Twitch in 2020. "10,000 subs multiplied by the amount of number I have and times that by 12, put a couple of donations and sponsors in there, and minus taxes, it’s not hard to figure out.”

While Mizkif doesn’t mind crediting his subscribers for his success, they might have to follow him to another platform soon. In September 2022, he joined other streamers like Imane “Pokimane” Anys and Devin Nash in making a plan to protest Twitch on Christmas Day 2022.

Per Kotaku, Mizkif, Pokimane, and Devin will act against Twitch to “protest the platform’s lax policies on gambling streams.” Twitch allegedly allows gambling for items on the popular site Counter-Strike: Global Offense for real money.

One user, Abraham “Sliker” Mohammed, claimed he became so addicted to the gambling site that he resorted to stealing $200,000 from his fans and other creators to support his addiction.

Mizkif and his peers believe Twitch’s team should be held responsible for how their gambling policies can affect its content creators.
