One of the most interesting things to note here is the rise of non-English channels on this list. Half of the channels on this list are non-English, with two being Portuguese, two Spanish, and one German. This is a good thing, as this indicates people have been consuming a range of diverse content.

xQc is one of the highest earners from donations and ads, making millions through these sources since he got big. He also earns relatively more from other sources, like his sponsorship deals. And if this list is anything to go by, xQc is more popular than ever.
