Pokimane explains why Twitch viewers donate to content creators who are already rich. Pokimane is one of the most popular Twitch streamers and currently the biggest female streamer on the platform. She always shared her own experiences with the viewers. In a recent stream, she talked about the donations by the viewers. She explains why Twitch viewers choose to donate to streamers who are already wealthy.
Pokimane suggested that the actual reason behind the donations to the rich streamers on Twitch is the attention the donor receives from the streamer – usually being Shout-out and thanked by the star. These things motivate the viewers to donate money on Twitch to famous content creators, so they called out doner’s name. Pokimane biggest female streamers
“Why do people actually donate to Twitch streamers? Because people don’t go as far as to think ‘how much does this person need my money?’ People donate because they want someone’s attention. And if anything, the richer someone becomes the more valuable their attention becomes. We all know why,” she finished. “Because most people don’t – we’re not all spending money logically twenty-four-seven. We do things for other reasons.”
If we think about it, this is a valid point. The rich streamers don’t need the donations, on the other hand, many small streamers need the money. Those streamers can upgrade their streaming setup with these donations. While the wealthiest Twitch streamers may not ‘need’ the money, a financial contribution still enables viewers to support and thank their favorite streamers. Not to mention, being wealthy does not mean a streamer will not appreciate donations. Pokimane biggest female streamers
