TWITCH has been hacked and a list which claims to reveal the top earners on the streaming platform is now circulating online.
The list claims to show the gross payouts of the top highest-paid Twitch creators from August 2019 until October 2021.
There’s also another ‘leaked’ list which claims to state September 2021 earnings of some of the top stars.
Popular names on the list include Shroud, Amouranth and Pokimane.
Reports suggest over 10,000 streamers’ earnings could have been revealed in the hack.
Streamer CriticalRole tops the August 2019 until October 2021 list by reportedly earning around $9.6million (£7million) in this time.
Streamer xQcOW comes in second on that list with $8,454,427.17.
Amouranth, who has famously been banned from the platform in the past for breaking rules on “sexually suggestive”, is said to have earned $1,363,346.32 in this time period.
That put her at number 48 on the supposedly leaked list on which CriticalRole is number one.
However, she’s much higher up the suspected September 2021 payout list.
That claims she earned $92,949 in that month.
Streamer xQcOW was said to be the ‘top earner’ in September with claims they made $752,467.
Pokimane, another popular female streamer, is said to have made $1,528,303.11 between August 2019 and October 2021.
That pales in comparison to Shroud, who the list claims made $96,359 in September this year and a staggering $2,040,503.15.
Twitch has not commented on this list or whether or not earning reports have definitely been stolen during the data breach.
It explains on its blog: “We have learned that some data was exposed to the internet due to an error in a Twitch server configuration change that was subsequently accessed by a malicious third party. Our teams are working with urgency to investigate the incident.
“As the investigation is ongoing, we are still in the process of understanding the impact in detail.
“We understand that this situation raises concerns, and we want to address some of those here while our investigation continues.
“At this time, we have no indication that login credentials have been exposed. We are continuing to investigate.”
