In order to tell you more about Félix AKA xQcOW, we have answered some of the most frequently asked questions about him.
What Is xQcOW’s Net Worth?
As of March 2021, xQcOW net worth is estimated to be around $3.4 million! No wonder that he was the highest-paid streamer in Twitch for the year 2020.
The most prominent reason behind his high net worth is the huge number of subscribers that he has on Twitch and his YouTube channel. This is because he is known for having a great command over the game Overwatch. He had been playing that game for a long time and even represented his country (Canada) at the International level. So, it is kind of obvious that he knows his way around the game and its streaming.
Since he rarely says yes to any sponsorship deal or advertisement, his net worth is less as compared to other streamers who have tons of advertisements in their videos. If xQcOW starts advertising a bit, it might not affect his subscribers, but it definitely would increase his net worth by around $500,000 on an annual basis.
Apart from the less sponsorship and advertisements, it is important to consider that the six-month imposed on him by Twitch Rivals has also affected his net worth in a negative way.
As mentioned above, the scandalous behavior of xQcOW and him streaming his fights with Ninja (Richard Tyler Blevin) and his wife (Jessica Goch) keeps him surrounded by controversies. Despite all the controversies, he is popular among people, and his followers make sure to stay by his side.
How Much Does xQcOW Earn?
xQcOW is a very famous streamer on Twitch and streamers earn money through their number of subscribers, advertisements, and donations. xQcOW has around 35,000 subscribers, and a streamer earns a minimum of $2.5 from every subscriber. Through this logic, xQcOW would be earning at least $8,000 per month from Twitch alone!
Apart from his regular streaming, where he would earn $960,000 on a yearly basis, he earns through other means as well that includes streaming for events or guest-appearances.
Apart from paying for the number of subscribers, Twitch also provides a feature of ‘Cheer.’ In this, a viewer can buy any number of Cheers that cost at the rate of $1.4 per Cheer. After this, if the viewer types “Cheer1” in the chat, it would donate $1 to the streamer and $0.4 to Twitch.

All of these features serve as an additional income to xQcOW, which results in his popularity and hence, high net worth.
