Since its introduction to the online streaming world in late 2022, Kick, the brainchild of prominent streamer Trainwreck, has been steadily gaining traction.
Several popular content creators such as Adin Ross, GMHikaru, Corinna Kopf, and Destiny have been attracted to the fresh, green-themed platform.
The most recent development that has set tongues wagging in the digital realm involves Twitch megastar xQc, whose name mysteriously appeared on a monetized account on Kick.
Is xQc Changing Platforms?
On June 16, 2023, a startling discovery shook the fan community. An unused account bearing xQc’s name on Kick suddenly became monetized, fueling speculation about the streamer’s potential migration from Twitch.
This has created a buzz across various social media platforms, with fans eager to know if the rumors are legitimate or simply baseless speculation.
The account is not yet verified, but that hasn’t prevented enthusiastic fans from subscribing and even gifting subs to the account.
Fans, Subs, and Speculation
Kick streamer JerryOnKick tweeted that some of xQc’s “valued chatters” had started subscribing to the new account.
Scores of other users echoed these sentiments on Twitter, expressing anticipation and excitement at the potential prospect of seeing ‘The Juicer’ on Kick.
Curiously, the account’s screen name was modified from ‘xqc’ to ‘xQc’ on June 16, leading to conjecture that Kick might be preparing the account for the Twitch star’s inaugural stream.
The Mystery Continues
While some skeptical observers argue that it might be a different user exploiting xQc’s name, the counterargument that Kick requires accounts to stream for a specified duration before allowing subscriptions holds sway.
This lends credence to the theory that this is not a casual impersonation, and xQc may indeed be considering a move to the rising platform.
A Wait-and-Watch Scenario
As speculation continues, fans and observers are left in a wait-and-watch mode, eager to find out whether one of Twitch’s biggest stars will indeed make the leap to Kick.
In the meantime, the possibility continues to generate buzz and contribute to the growing curiosity around the relatively new but rapidly growing Kick streaming platform.
Until official confirmation or denial comes from xQc himself, the online community will continue its animated speculation and spirited debates.
