Amouranth, one of Twitch’s biggest stars, has certainly understood this, experimenting with various streaming ‘metas’ – from hot tub streams to ASMR to the bizarre practice of selling fart jars.
However, it’s her sleep streams that seem to have brought the most financial success with minimal effort involved.
Unconventional Streams Yield Unconventional Earnings
Sleep streams, as the name suggests, involve the streamer broadcasting themselves sleeping.
Amouranth’s viewers watch and often attempt to troll her during her sleep streams, with the streamer admitting it’s likely a voyeuristic fascination for many.
Male streamers find such streams lucrative because viewers often donate in an attempt to wake them up through alerts or media share that plays loud music or videos.
This technique has provided a literal way for streamers to make money while they sleep, but no one appears to have leveraged it more successfully than Amouranth.
Amouranth’s Nightly Earnings: Counting the Profits
During her appearance on ‘The Iced Coffee Hour’ podcast, Amouranth discussed various money-making ventures she had tried over the years, from her streams and OnlyFans to business investments.
What stunned the podcast hosts the most, however, were her sleep streams, a concept they hadn’t encountered before.
When host Graham Stephan inquired about the average earnings from these sleep streams, Amouranth stated, “If you count just on Twitch, probably like a couple thousand dollars, but if you count the conversions, potentially, to OnlyFans, while I’m sleeping, then maybe like $10,000-$15,000.”
Not an Every Night Affair
Despite the impressive revenue potential, the hosts wondered why Amouranth doesn’t stream herself sleeping every night. She cited scheduling conflicts as the primary challenge preventing daily sleep streams.
In 2022, Amouranth’s sleep streams caught the attention of mainstream media, leaving even radio personality Howard Stern baffled by their popularity.
An Unexpected Health Concern
In the same podcast, Amouranth shared unfortunate news about her health that led to the cancellation of what would have been her boxing debut.
The streamer revealed she has late-stage ovarian failure and was advised against engaging in “high-impact physical activities.”
Despite the health setback, Amouranth’s innovative approach to streaming on Twitch continues to garner attention and substantial earnings.
Her ability to transform seemingly mundane activities into lucrative ventures serves as a testament to the creative possibilities within the world of live streaming.
