In the third episode, Will explores the different ways that streamers can monetize their online presence and how they view their success beyond money. While video game streaming has become a new kind of career that is increasingly less marginalized, the streamers’ relationship with money remains a taboo subject. Their main sources of revenue are viewers, who support streamers by subscribing to their channel or by spontaneously donating. This allows some streamers to make a living off of their passion and to produce more content. But complete commitment to the community can lead to a hectic and ultimately isolating lifestyle, requiring many sacrifices in terms of social life, family life, and health.
