APC Australia - - Numbercrunch -

AMOUNT THAT THE HIGH­EST-EARN­ING YOUTUBER, DANTDM, EARNED IN THE LAST FI­NAN­CIAL YEAR Since 2015, Forbes has been keep­ing track of the dol­lars that YouTube celebri­ties have raked in, and in the last fi­nan­cial year, 26-year-old Daniel Mid­dle­ton from the UK (aka DanTDM) topped the charts. Earn­ing $22 mil­lion and rack­ing up over 17 mil­lion fol­low­ers, Mid­dle­ton’s stream­ing footage of him play­ing Minecraft has led him to tour the world and even sell out four nights at the Syd­ney Opera House. Sec­ond place went to Evan Fong (VanossGam­ing) who earned around $20 mil­lion from his GTA V and Call of Duty stream­ing.
