Who Is Kai Cenat? What Does He Do?
Not long ago, in 2018, a young kid from New York with Haitian-Trinidadian background started his content creation journey on YouTube.
Initially, he created fun videos like pranks, challenges, and vlogs. Everything changed for Kai when he migrated to Twitch from YouTube in 2021 – thanks to the gaming supergroup AMP (Any Means Possible).
When he came to Twitch, he became surprisingly more popular than on YouTube. He quickly garnered people’s attention due to his charisma and fun personality.
He even created a streaming channel on YouTube and earned over 3 million subscribers.
But, he was getting more popular on Twitch during this time via his gaming and reaction live streams. Moreover, his popularity further surged when he invited guests to his streams.
Within months, he gained 80,000 active subscribers and hit 90,000 and even 100,000 active subscribers by September 2022. The same year he dethroned xQc from his crown of streamer with the most subscribers.
Now, he is among the Twitch elites like xQc and HasanAbi due to his popularity and success. Currently, he has 5.5 million followers on Twitch and has no plans to slow down soon.
As per Streamschart, currently, ironmouse has the most active subs — over 90K. He also tops the gifted subs and Tier 1 subs in Twitch. xQc dominates the paid subs with 38,055 paid subs.

Interestingly his active subs reached a whopping figure of 300k when he started his subathon, as he streamed 24 hours during February 2023. During this time, he became the most subscribed streamer once again on Twitch.
Since we know his subs keep changing every month, as it even reached 300k during February 2023, it is challenging to make an exact estimate.

It is important to note that Twitch charges $4.99 monthly from subscribers — streamers get only half of it, while Twitch keeps the other half.
Streamers with a premium subscription can get their sub’s income split in the ratio 70/30 with Twitch.
During his subathon, rumors surfaced that Twitch made between $15 to $20 million, and Kai only got $2 million. However, Kai Cenat brushed off these rumors by laughing at everyone coming up with such numbers.
Kai Cenat is a young streamer with a dynamic personality, and we can say a way with words.
