He started his own channel back in 2018 just as he was about to finish high school. He now does an average of at least one video per week.

How Much Money Does Kai Cenat Earn On YouTube?

The channel has over 2.2 million subscribers as of 2021 and has accumulated over 150 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 300,000 per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $2,400 per day ($870,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.

YouTube content creators based in the US, UK, Canada and Australia generally get paid $2 – $12 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views usually range from 40% – 80% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like the device played on, time of the year, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, type of advertisement, ad engagement, type of content, etc. The cost of an ad view is based on an auction between advertisers based on views. Advertisers have to bid a minimum of $0.01 per view.

There is also a program known as Google Preferred where deep-pocketed companies can target ads on the top 5% most popular content. The ad rates here are higher than normal. Apart from ads, YouTubers also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads. Here they get paid based on watch time on their videos. The longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.

Kai makes extra income from AMP and sponsorship deals from brands like Keeps etc. He also runs another channel known as Kai Cenat Live that has over 20 million views. Here he does live videos.
