Streamers have always been quick to jump on viral trends, and the latest is the NPC challenge. This strange trend has earned many streamers thousands of dollars, and IShowSpeed is one of the biggest beneficiaries.
IShowSpeed took on the NPC trend during a live session on TikTok, receiving paid stickers from fans who were thrilled with his performance.
Acting like an NPC soundboard and repeating predefined reactions, Speed reportedly earned between $25,000 to $30,000. The massive response from fans indicates that his earnings could be closer to the higher end of that range.
Kai Cenat, one of the most popular streamers on TikTok, earned a whopping amount of $6,000 in just an hour while doing the viral NPC trend.
The trend has gone viral thanks to the efforts of 19-year-old TikToker Pinkydoll, who started the trend which quickly gained traction online. Cenat's earnings are proof that the trend is engaging the fans.
