A Twitch streamer made $16,000 in just one night after allowing people to pay to wake him up while he was sleeping.
While Twitch, a live streaming service, was originally designed for gaming streams, Asian Andy has found more creative, and lucrative ways to use the service.
His game plan is simple; he sleeps, and his audience competes to wake him up. While the idea is not new and has been done before, Andy has found a way to monetise his sleep.
Viewers can pay money in exchange for noise, such as loud music, a dog bark or a voice reading out text, all with the aim of waking Andy up from his sleep.
