Dream Net Worth 2022: How rich is the Faceless YouTuber?
Dream is a Twitch streamer and YouTube celebrity who is best known for his Minecraft videos. He is arguably the most popular content creator who remains faceless. He has one of the fastest growing channels in all of YouTube history. As of 2022, Dream has a net worth of $2 million.
The online star’s real first name is Clay. Born August 12, 1999, he lives in Orlando, Florida with his 15-year-old sister. TommyInnit, Clay’s close pal, gave him the nickname “Drista”. Clay has two other siblings.
He was a quarterback for his high school’s flag football team and enjoyed playing basketball and soccer in his spare time. He suffers from ADHD, which makes it difficult for him to concentrate in class.
Even with his condition, he graduated from high school in 2018. He skipped college because he knew enough about technology to get a job in the industry and was previously employed by AppleCare.
Clay started uploading content regularly in July 2019. He made a lot of video ideas for Minecraft, and that’s how he became famous. In one video, he used reverse engineering methods he learned on public forums to uncover the seed of a Minecraft world that PewDiePie was playing on.
He has also hosted many gaming competitions. His Minecraft Speedrunner VS 3 Hunters GRAND FINALE video became one of the top seven trending videos in YouTube Rewind 2020.
Dream had a deep understanding of YouTube’s algorithm. In just over a year of grinding, he was able to gain 10 million subscribers. Now he has 28.7 million subscribers.
His unusually lucky ender pearl trades and fire rod drops were documented and analyzed in a December 11, 2020 report. Clay maintains that he has neither the desire nor the skill to artificially improve his odds by cheating.
A snippet of a now-private video of a Minecraft user with the “Dream” hilt speaking the n-word appeared online on March 25, 2021. He responded on Twitter, saying it wasn’t his account.
He was also involved in two dramas that unfolded on Twitter. Fellow YouTuber Jawsh mentioned it saying stan culture is not good. John Swan also tweeted once that the anonymous player was an asshole.
Sources of income
Although he has been in some controversy, Dream is undoubtedly a successful figure. He and GeorgeNotFound launched the Dream SMP, a private Minecraft Survival Multiplayer (SMP) server. Dream SMP live streams have been viewed by nearly one million people.
Every YouTube video Dream uploads earns Dream at least $15,000 in revenue. Apart from its usual content, Dream occasionally uploads music to its channel.
He is involved in projects outside of YouTube. MrBeast Burger has launched the Dream Burger as a limited time addition to their menu. It also sells products such as t-shirts, hoodies, and sweatshirts on its own website.
Dream was romantically involved with someone named Sam. However, she was accused of cheating on him multiple times, and they ended their romance on good terms. Clay is currently single.
