People who donate their hard-earned cash to streamers who are many dozens of times richer than you, how do you justify this in your minds?

  1. They provide a product that I am consuming. Why do I buy tickets to a sports game to watch athletes who are way richer than me. Why do I buy movie tickets to watch actors who are way richer than me…

  2. I don’t pay content creators, but I would imagine it’s the same thing as buying tickets to go see a wealthy singer, wealthy athlete, or wealthy actor excel at their craft.

  3. Because they produce content I consume regularly. I only sub to people I watch daily and I feel like it’s no more than fair to do so. I only give what I can miss anyway and I don’t think I’ve subbed to anyone who is “dozens of times richer” than me. Only smaller streamers personally (big fan of engagement)

  4. I donate to paymoneywubby on twitch a lot, mainly just to see his reaction to what ever I sent. If you’re clever you can really make him laugh or outraged and it’s a really fun way to soend five bucks

  5. I have bought a cosmetic from a free game once. Did i need that cosmetic? No, did the company need my money? Not really, but i had gotten a lot of joy from that game and i wanted to give at least something. I imagine it is similar with streamers.
