Streamer Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang has started throwing around the idea of moving to YouTube.
Disguised Toast revealed to fans that there’s an upcoming negotiations discussion surrounding his partner status on Twitch. This led Disguised Toast to do a bit of reflecting, which included debating a possible platform change.
The variety streamer pointed out that he’s one of the only members of OfflineTV left on Twitch. He added that most of his OTV friends have moved to YouTube, including Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter, Lily “Lilypichu” Ki, and Sykkuno. Despite some viewership complaints from Sykkuno, it seems that nobody who has switched to YouTube has regretted the decision so far.
“At this rate, I think I’ll be the only guy from OTV and Friends that’s on Twitch,” Disguised Toast said.
Is Disguised Toast moving to YouTube Gaming?
Disguised Toast still seems pretty unsure on the idea of moving streaming platforms. The decision will come down to if Disguised Toast gets a lucrative deal with Twitch “this time around,” according to Disguised Toast.
The streamer pointed out that Twitch paid a lot to keep Nicholas “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff, who turned around to diss TwitchCon for its policies. This led Disguised Toast to believe there may be $30 million up for grabs, with the streamer asking if Twitch would actually follow through on signing NICKMERCS after that situation played out. But on the other hand, Disguised Toast added, Twitch was willing to let Ludwig “Ludwig” Ahgren go after a hugely successful subathon.
“I don’t know if I have a chance of getting a good deal,” Disguised Toast said. “I don’t know if I’ll get a big bag from Twitch. Maybe I’ll just move to YouTube.”
The entire discussion seemed to be a bit flippant on Disguised Toast’s end, hinting that it could have just been a joke. But Disguised Toast is not new to trying out new platforms. Disguised Toast has even joined Facebook Gaming in the past before returning to Twitch.
In November 2019, Disguised Toast explained that he had reached a plateau on Twitch and wanted to take advantage of Facebook Gaming’s “untapped market potential.” While the move was a risk, Disguised Toast was hoping at the time that he could take Facebook Gaming to the next level. It didn’t work out quite as well as he’d hoped, and he eventually found his way back to Twitch.
