The name that has shined the most in 2022 so far is Sykkuno. From cute, shy streamer to YouTube’s biggest face, Sykkuno has come a long way in such a short amount of time.
Be it its collaborative streams with other prominent names in the industry or the launch of its own hit wares, Sykkuno has done it all.
Back in May, the Among Us star even switched his primary streaming platform from Twitch to YouTube after signing an exclusivity deal with the latter. And surprisingly, this is already proving to be one of the best decisions for Sykkuno as he gains a new viewership.
Although he mainly gained his fanbase on Twitch, YouTube gave him something new and better to work on.
Contrary to popular belief, Sykkuno hasn’t lost his viewership or fans in general since he switched platforms, even gaining several hundred when he made the big leap.
Speaking of viewership, on his very first stream, the Among Us star managed to draw in over 41,000 viewers, which is more than his previous month’s Twitch numbers. His other streams also get very good reactions from viewers, making him one of the most popular YouTube creators.
This is undoubtedly a great example of how a streamer can maintain its viewership and popularity even after switching platforms.
