Well-known YouTube stars are now making quite a bit of money. For example, Logan Paul was recently able to afford a couple of $3.5 million Pokémon cards, which later turned out to be fake.
Although YouTubers can monetize their content on the video platform, a lot of income also comes from external sources. Some YouTubers invest in start-ups and cryptocurrencies, or start their own restaurant.
Who are the richest YouTubers?
the Page Forbes recently published their list of the richest YouTubers of 2021. At the top is Jimmy “Mr Beast” Dolandson. The YouTuber probably earned around 47 million euros last year, a large part of which is said to have been generated by Mr Beast Burger.
Jake Paul is in second place with almost 40 million euros in revenue in 2021. The YouTuber allegedly received a total of 35 million euros from his various boxing matches, the remaining 5 million euros come from his actual YouTube channel.
