Since its launch in late 2022, the Stake-backed streaming platform Kick has experienced an extraordinary surge in popularity within the streaming community. Prominent figures from Twitch have already made the transition to this new platform by signing lucrative contracts.
One notable streamer who joined Kick is Adin Ross. After being banned from the Amazon-owned platform, he made a groundbreaking deal, securing the “biggest streaming deal ever” with Kick. More recently, xQc, Twitch’s top streamer, signed a contract worth $70 million with Kick. However, this deal comes with additional incentives that could potentially push the total value over $100 million.
Given the success of these signings, many streamers are now considering a partnership with Kick. Adin Ross, often regarded as the face of Kick, has expressed his desire for the British YouTube group Sidemen to join the platform.
Adin Ross’s Bold Offer for Sidemen to Move to Kick
He humorously remarked, “I offered AMP $100 million dollars to come to Kick. They said no. I will offer Sidemen 100 million dollars to come to Kick—take it or leave it.”
Furthermore, Adin Ross clarified, “I didn’t actually offer AMP $100 million; I was just exaggerating,” before turning to Eddie, co-owner of Kick, who happened to be watching the stream. He asked Eddie whether they could extend the mega-money deal to the YouTube stars.
Sidemen: A Blend of YouTube and Live Streaming
Although the Sidemen primarily gained fame as YouTubers, several members of the group have dabbled in live streaming over the past few years.
Notably, streamers like Miniminter and Zerkaa have consistently broadcasted their content on platforms like Twitch, amassing a substantial following of millions.
However, fans and observers have speculated that the Sidemen might decline the offer, believing that the group’s value surpasses the amount currently on the table.
Kick, the Stake-backed streaming platform, has emerged as a major player in the streaming industry since its launch in 2022. With influential figures like Adin Ross and xQc signing lucrative deals, Kick has garnered attention and admiration within the streaming community.
Adin Ross, in his pursuit of expanding Kick’s roster of talents, has made a staggering offer of $100 million to the renowned YouTube group Sidemen. While several members of Sidemen have engaged in live streaming, the decision to join Kick remains uncertain.
As the streaming landscape continues to evolve, the outcome of Kick’s pursuit of the Sidemen will undoubtedly be a topic of great interest and speculation. Will the allure of Kick’s mega-money deal be enough to persuade the Sidemen to make the leap to this streaming platform? Only time will tell.
