Do you know how much the most popular youtubers earn? | Digital Trends Spanish
Today, the figure of the youtuber almost resembles –almost– to that of a television or movie star. And it is no wonder: some of these independent content creators are capable of reaching millions of people around the world and amassing a fortune that most of us mortals dream of.
Many skeptics will say that becoming a millionaire on the Internet – specifically on YouTube – is impossible, but nothing could be further from the truth. Although it is true that today, due to the great competition it is more difficult to earn a lot by monetizing videos on the platform, obtaining exorbitant income is still a possibility.
Proof of this are the protagonists of our next ranking. In it, you will find out who are the five YouTube stars who earn the most money and you will be surprised to know that at the top of the podium there is someone whose age only has one figure.
