Recently, a new type of broadcast is gaining popularity on the Twitch streaming platform: the streamer simply turns on the camera, points it to the bed and goes to bed.
Such a stream can last from several minutes to 6-8 hours, during which viewers are invited to simply look at a sleeping person and throw small amounts of money. So the modern stars of Internet broadcasts literally sleep for money.
The main thing is that the trend for sleeping streamers does not depend on gender: hundreds of viewers enjoy watching both sleeping girls and guys.
What a game.
Stories of streamers who discovered a talent for sleeping for donations
Streamer Matthew Rinaudo, who gets paid for his sleep. Literally.
My mom thinks I’m just messing around, says Wired popular streamer Matthew “Mizkif” Rinaudo. Let’s see how she speaks when she finds out that I sleep on the camera and get paid for it!
Matthew came up with an interactive game: while he is sleeping, viewers can send any video to the streamer, which will immediately be shown in the same window as the sleeping person’s online broadcast. All for money, of course. In order for your video to be seen by all other viewers, you need to pay symbolic two or five dollars.
So Matthew once made $ 5,600 for a few hours of sound, healthy sleep.
The most interesting thing is that the dream broadcast is not the main content. Most of the time, these people are doing what their subscribers love for: playing games, chatting and commenting on other videos.
The amazing thing is that even while on vacation, streamers manage to receive donations and stay in trend.
Sleeping girls are watched more actively
This is how the broadcast of the dream of streamer Caitlin looks like.
Streamer Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa hosts ASMR streams, during which she scratches the microphone and whispers unintelligible phrases into it against the background of calm music. Yes, this video format is popular now.
One day, a girl said that goes to bed and reported that every 20 new subscribers shift the alarm time by an hour. The more people subscribe, the better Caitlin will sleep.
Eight hours later, the alarm went off and Caitlin woke up with a million subscribers on her channel. Now on girl signed by 1.9 million people.
One of the first bloggers who came up with such a broadcast format is Paul “Ice Poseidon” Denino, who went to bed live in 2017 and set up the broadcast so that for monetary donations viewers could try to wake the sleeper with different sounds, from knocking on the door to a strange child’s voice.
Sometimes Paul woke up, scolded the audience or threw a pillow into the camera and fell asleep again. After 8 hours of this broadcast, he became richer by 5 thousand dollars.
In Russia, this way of earning money is not yet very popular: we have not managed to find a single Russian-speaking blogger or streamer who could boast of such success. However, it may be just a matter of time. [по материалам Wired]
