Sodapoppin discusses regret over not signing with Mixer

Twitch streamer Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris is known for his incredible net worth, something that often comes up during streams. Despite that, Sodapoppin admitted that he wished he could have also signed a lucrative contract with Mixer.

Sodapoppin has been on Twitch since 2008 and has built up a following of over 8.8 million fans. He also founded One True King, a content creator network focused on World of Warcraft. Due to his popularity as a variety game streamer and his ongoing business ventures, Sodapoppin is said to be worth anywhere between $5 million and $8 million. But he could have been worth more, at least according to Sodapoppin.

Sodapoppin explains why he wishes he signed with Mixer

The streaming community was shaken to its core when Tyler “Ninja” Blevins announced he was leaving Twitch for Microsoft’s competing platform known as Mixer. Despite being one of the most-followed streamers on Twitch, Ninja seemed more than happy to give it all up to sign a contract with the new site.

While many people made fun of Ninja at the time, especially once Mixer was shut down, Sodapoppin admitted that he was jealous of Ninja and other content creators who had the opportunity.

“I f—ing wish I went to Mixer. I’m so jealous. These f— sticks signed these contracts for tens of millions of dollars and they got to come back,” Sodapoppin exclaimed during an August 11 stream.

The controversial streamer added that Ninja and other streamers got to keep all of the promised money from the contract even when Mixer shut down. To Sodapoppin, it seemed like a win-win situation. The streamers earned millions for joining Mixer and were able to come back to Twitch right after, making the stakes very minimal. But apparently Sodapoppin feels he has too many “morals” to sign a big contract like that.

“And I keep getting f—d. I’m just gonna start doing shady s—. It hurts,” Sodapoppin said.

The rant fit into Sodapoppin’s recent narrative. He was recently compared to Jeff Bezos due to his incredible streaming income, something that Sodapoppin reacted negatively to. While Sodapoppin may not be a billionaire, the streaming community at large explained at the time that he still had many of the same benefits of being rich, like never having to worry about money. He was accused of “humble bragging” at the time.
