Despite nobody knowing his identity or seeing his face, Clay “Dream” has been announced as Content Creator of the Year at The Game Awards 2021.

The Game Awards 2021 snuck up on the gaming community, streaming live from the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. The streamers nominated for the coveted award included Fuslie, Gaules, Ibai, TheGrefg, and Dream. The Minecraft superstar came out on top, thanking fans on Twitter.

“This is so amazing. I love you all. Such an amazing community,” Dream tweeted.

But Dream’s community has actually been the source of a lot of drama and controversy in the streaming world. Dream’s community have often been referred to as “stans” who have developed a reputation for attacking others on social media.

Still, Dream has had an incredible rise as a content creator over the last few years. Dream has over 27 million subscribers on YouTube, where he shares Minecraft speedrun videos and other Minecraft-related content.

Who is Dream?

Dream’s identity is a secret. Nobody seems to know exactly who Dream is behind his mask. Dream has hinted that he wants to do a face reveal, creating a sort of event around it with his fans. But so far, Dream has yet to take off his mask during any videos or streams and his victory at The Game Awards 2021 was no exception. Still, there have been fake face reveals that have led to drama in the Dream fanbase, with some accusing Dream of “catfishing” his fans.

How much money does Dream make?

Dream makes about $120,000 per month just from his Twitch streams, YouTube videos, and Patreon subscribers. Most of his money comes from YouTube where he shares most of his content. Dream also has a very popular merch shop, which provides further revenue.

Dream’s net worth is said to be $5 million.

Did Dream fake his speed run?

Dream first gained a more massive viewing when he announced an incredible Minecraft speedrun record. But Minecraft experts and many record keepers in the industry found that Dream had used cheats to get massively better luck than normal. This was how Dream was able to get such a great record.

Dream initially denied that he faked the speedrun but later admitted that he had cheated during the record-breaking run. Still, Dream denied that he knew the illegal mod was active during his gameplay. Dream still apologized for the incident and has continued to gain a massive following all over social media.
