Ice Poseidon Net Worth – $150,000
Ice Poseidon is a streaming YouTube channel run by an American YouTuber named Paul Denino. He has an estimated net worth of $150,000. He started his journey to fame through Twitch by streaming Runescape gaming videos then changed up his content to streaming his real life adventures after playing Pokemon Go in 2016. He was banned on Twitch and has to start building his following from scratch on YouTube. He succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations on the new platform thanks to his boisterous personality which is able to transform the most banal interactions into a digital theater of the absurd.
Ice shoots his videos with a wide angle lens, wired to a 4G modem bonder capable of outputting high definition videos in real time. He moved from South Florida to Hollywood so as to get much more entertaining content for the stream.
How Much Money Does Ice Poseidon Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 900,000 subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 100 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 150,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $270 per day ($100,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like device played on, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, ad engagement 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.
Ice makes a large portion of his income through donations from his fans who are tuned in during the stream. Currently he does an average of $5,000 – $20,000 per month in donations. He was able to make $5,000 in donations overnight while streaming as his fans paid to interrupt him while he was sleeping.
