Ludwig Ahgren, one of the most unpredictable players on Twitch, has faced one of the most unpredictable challenges: staying live until they stop donating money to him. Unfortunately for him (?), The money never stopped raining.
The #subathon mechanism is very simple: there is a countdown to the end of the broadcast, but every time someone subscribes to the channel, it adds up to 10 seconds. Ludwig eats, sleeps and bathes in front of his followers. Sunday night, when he first went to sleep live, it showed 18 hours remaining. When he woke up, he was back at 27 years old. Now, after 91 hours of continuous live shows, the countdown is 59 hours, which means he will have to broadcast for at least two and a half days.
probably Ludwig A challenge cannot be completed without setting a limit. The more famous his achievement (at the time of writing, there were 57,000 people watching him asleep), the more people would come to donate money; Sometimes, brands distribute hundreds of ad subscriptions.
This is not to say that the 25-year-old is bored or has a hard time. Besides cooking and sleeping, he talks to his directors on Discord, comments on movies with his followers, and plays games like Super Mario Sunshine And exercise in the garage. “It’s fun now,” he says.
Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this craze (at least for those who aren’t a fan of Ludwig) is the sheer amount of money he makes from getting him done. A group of followers has been created Spreadsheet It is updated automatically with numbers. After 90 hours of live broadcast, things went as follows:
- Total product from Subscriptions, bits, and media sharing: $ 229,563
- A total was entered by removing Ludwig A committee Die Twitch: $ 157,026
- Total entered per hour: $ 1,725.56
- Total subscribers: 62,334
- New subscribers: 31,334
- Live sleep hours: 21
Broadcasting your life 24/7 seems to be a lucrative business, at least for someone who was already known. Although these sums still had to be subtracted, then split in half, as Ludwig promised to donate half of it to charity.
