For some, streaming is a very profitable business.

A streamer specializing in Fortnite, ExoticChaotic, can consider the beginning of this year a very successful one. During one of the broadcasts he received a donation of 75 thousand dollars. This is the largest one-time donation in the history of Twitch.

The amount was so large that initially ExoticChaotic was convinced that someone was taking him for a ride. After checking his PayPal account, however, he made sure that he actually received $75,000. Another streamer with a nickname KingMascot turned out to be the donor. He could afford such generosity, because he invested in Bitcoin in the early stages of development of this cryptocurrency, and then successfully switched to trading on stock exchange.

Streamers have known each other for some time, and they have a common passion for collecting all possible cosmetic items available in Fortnite. KingMascot knew that the financial situation of ExoticChaotic is far from satisfactory and that is why he decided to make the beginning of the year more pleasant for his colleague with a donation.

ExoticChaotic is quite well known in the fan community Fortnite thanks to the good results in tournaments. Recently, however, he had problems with the Internet, which discouraged many viewers, so KingMascot decided to lend a helping hand.

ExoticChaotic himself has recently won $30,000. in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish series tournaments. Expenses such as replacing his car that was slowly coming apart reduced the amount considerably. Streamer hopes that the donation from KingMascot will suffice for much longer.
