Although he has sparked some debate with his claim that streamers with fewer than 50 viewers should “give up” their ambitions, Sodapoppin is considered by many to have an expert perspective on Twitch due to the fact that he is one of the platform’s veteran streamers and continues to enjoy an enormous amount of popularity today.
Sodapoppin expressed disagreement with a significant portion of the information provided by Ninja in his “masterclass” for prospective streamers, and he stated that streamers with fewer than 50 viewers should just admit that they have failed.
As of February 2022, it is anticipated that Sodapoppin have amassed a total net worth of approximately $5 million. The majority of his income comes from streaming video games on Twitch and from the regular videos that he uploads to his YouTube channel.

Sodapoppin, along with a large number of other prominent streamers, got their start in the industry at a very young age – even back in the Justin.tv days, before Twitch rebranded.
Even though it is undeniably true that it is currently much more difficult to grow a large audience for a stream on Twitch due to the saturation of channels, all of which are competing for attention, many channels with fewer than 50 viewers would argue that they have already found some level of success.
The vast majority of broadcasts will only garner a few spectators, typically fewer than 10. Obtaining 50 subscribers would almost certainly place a channel in the very top percentage of all streams.
