Kick vs Twitch

How Kick is catching up with Twitch

If you're into watching your favourite streamer, Twitch is probably your go-to. But is that about to change? Rival platform Kick has made waves by luring in major Twitch stars and enticing smaller streamers with the prospect of higher earnings.

Here are a few compelling reasons why Kick stands out as the superior choice:

  • Kick offers a subscription revenue split of 95-5, whereas Twitch provides a 50-50 split.

  • On Kick, 100% of tips, referred to as 'Kicks,' go directly to streamers. Earnings can be withdrawn on the same day, eliminating the need to wait for a monthly payout. These earnings are determined by hours watched and total viewers, not solely on a monthly subscriber count.

  • Kick has been able to secure your favourite streamers such as Adin Ross, Amouranth, XQC and more.

  • Kick has set a new precedent by offering XQC an unprecedented $100 million for a two-year non-exclusive deal, making it the most lucrative deal in streaming history.

  • Let’s dive into the details, it's worth noting that Kick is under the ownership of Stake. Through this ownership, viewers are seamlessly ushered into the captivating world of gambling that Stake has to offer.

  • Within just two months of its launch, Kick has already featured several Stake-sponsored streams. Prominent personalities like Drake, Roshtein, and Trainwreck have each hosted at least one stream on this new platform.

Kick's survival is uncertain, but there's consensus on Twitch needing policy fixes. On Kick, the added bonus is catching Drake's "Jeez Louise" moments.
