MrBeast may be among the most popular and well-known gaming YouTubers, but he’s not the highest-earning one. It’s not Markiplier or PewDiePie, either; the top-earning YouTuber of 2022 took home nearly $56 million.
A recent study has revealed the top ten earning YouTubers for 2022. Researchers for casinoalpha analyzed views gained by YouTube channels since December of last year. They then applied the going rate for sponsored content to the creator’s name, who produced the most valuable content.
A4 IS THE HIGHEST-EARNING YOUTUBER
Surprisingly, it’s A4 beating out the more popular YouTubers. He tops the list of highest-earning YouTubers with 1.5 million views and $11.6 million made from his gaming channel alone.
The third highest-earning YouTuber of 2022 is Techno Gamerz. They saw 2.8 billion views and earned $22.6 million in earnings. The Indian YouTuber Techno Gamerz is also among the youngest on the list at 22.
Even more famous is MrBeast. The MrBeast Gaming channel, despite the YouTuber’s popularity, shockingly didn’t crack the top five. He did, however, top out other major YouTubers, such as jacksepticeye and PewDiePie.
ANALYZING THE RESULTS
What’s remarkable from the list is that the biggest-known celebrities on YouTube aren’t making the most money. While MrBeast, PewDiePie, and Markiplier may be household names for some, their earnings pale compared to A4 or SSSniperWolf.
