How much is Trainwreckstv’s net worth? Trainwreck is one of the richest streamers online who earn his revenue from several avenues.
Some of the biggest and best casino streamers prefer to keep a low profile during off hours and so keep their identity hidden. Like Roshtein and ClassyBeef, for example, we have no idea who they really are.
Trainwreckstv, however, is not like them. At all. In fact, he is very upfront about who he is, sharing a whole lot of personal details whenever the chance pops up. In fact, he’s so public and famous that he’s even got a detailed Wikipedia page written about him!
One of the biggest Stake streamers around these days is a guy called Trainwreckstv. If you’re a gamer, you might already know him from his original incarnation, streaming himself playing World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, and Halo back in the day.
But more recently, he’s made the move to a more adult gaming style, going pretty full force with crypto casino betting. While this has drawn some criticism – mainly that the audience he has built his reputation with is predominantly minors – many have loved watching him make the move.

Admittedly, Trainwreckstv has made a lot of money as a streamer. And as he mentions himself, he’s also made money investing in cryptocurrency amongst other things.
But he gambles a lot and doesn’t always win. So while, for example, he hit a $22.5 million win once in Might of Ra, he spends a lot of money betting big and is sometimes just covering his losses.
Trainwreckstv recently revealed on his Twitter account that he lost $2 million while gambling off-stream. Prior to that, he had won a $400k jackpot on a gambling site while streaming, and yet he was still $100k in the loss.
In fact, part of his big appeal is his open manner of speech in which he talks practically of how much he’s up and how much he’s down, how it happened, and what he plans on doing to fix it.
How much does Trainwreckstv earn?
Twitch is one of Trainwreckstv’s biggest income generation avenues. He averages around 12.5k subscribers to 15k subscribers a month and if we assume these are all the lowest tier subscribers that pay $5 a month, then Train would hypothetically be making around $31.2k to $37.5k a month. This would result in $374.4k to $450k per annum.
The actual number would be much higher, owing to subscribers that pay a larger amount, as well as the numerous donations he receives every stream. There is also the possibility that Train earns a higher amount per subscriber if he has renegotiated the terms of his contract with Twitch.
He makes significantly less from his YouTube channel, at about $670 to $840 a month, and $8k to $10k a year, which is very insignificant compared to his earnings on other platforms. He also has sold merchandise in the past.
Trainwreckstv is estimated to make around $385k to $460k per annum, from his YouTube and Twitch channels. He also generates a significant amount of revenue from sponsorships, as well as sponsor deals he receives for his podcast named “Scuffed Podcast.” Many viewers on Twitch also donate to his stream.
