Earlier this week, popular streamer Adin Ross announced his walkout of Twitch after he received multiple threats from the platform. The 22-year-old was not having it and decided to move on to the Trainwrecktv-owned platform. Kick offered him a multi-million dollar deal, promising $150 million for a two-year deal. 

However, it did not meet Adin’s expectations, as he recently appeared on Twitch to talk about the same. One of his fans clipped a bit from his stream where everyone could hear him share his true feelings about the platform despite the recent switch. And mind you, most of his fans were baffled as they could not believe what he said.

As Adin jumped from Twitch to Kick, the platform’s viewership skyrocketed as thousands of fans hopped onto his stream. He grabbed over 68,713 followers in four days, setting a record for himself. Apparently, his idea for this transition came after the feeling that Twitch could not silence him.

There, Adin spoke about how he felt underpaid and that Kick had to pay him more if they wanted him to stream full-time. “I need more money! I need more money,” he exclaimed in the video. According to sources, the streamer is worth $24 million and makes $1.8 million per month. So, based on that, if he thinks he needs more money, there might be a few handful reasons behind it.

The SuperBowl controversy 

During his stream on Kick, Adin almost landed in an unwanted controversy after he streamed the Super Bowl. Apparently, an ‘esports’ lawyer claimed Ross could get banned/sued for copyright infringement as NFL owned the rights. This raised questions about whether the content creator had any authority to live-stream the event or just feature it for fun. 

As of now, Adin and the NFL have yet to respond to this controversy, so it is time that will help us understand where it goes. But for now, it looks like the 22-year-old needs more cash to walk out of Twitch completely.
