Last year, that income totaled nearly $200,000.
The healthy sum -- more than enough to comfortably raise a family
in most American cities -- is all the more impressive considering Spikoski is 14 years old.
another:
His big break came last year when the Spikoski beat a well-known Fortnite player and uploaded a video of the battle to YouTube, quickly resulting in 7.5 million views, according to WABC-TV. It didn't take long, the station reported, for the teenager to make his first $100 from Twitch. Not long after, his father, Chris said, everything changed."Two months went by and we were like, 'Alright, we're going to need to get an accountant and get a financial adviser,'" he said.

so, the questions are:
1. is this the future equivalent of ALL professional sports?
2. since professional, underage movie stars are acceptable, is this any different?
3. finally, if 99% of spectators are online, will Stadiums die with the demographics?
