The news sent shockwaves through the community, as RiceGum’s presence on Twitch had amassed over one million followers. He revealed that he would be creating exclusive content for the platform and committing to a certain number of streaming hours each month. Explaining his decision, RiceGum cited the financial aspect as a significant factor. He disclosed that Rumble had offered him a more lucrative deal compared to Kick. In contrast, Kick’s proposal would have required him to participate in gambling activities to maximize his earnings.
RiceGum’s move to Rumble follows the footsteps of other prominent creators who have recently joined the platform. He emphasized his excitement to focus on content creation and expressed his satisfaction with the financial incentives provided by Rumble. Earlier this year, both Kai Cenat and IShowSpeed made the transition to Rumble, securing their own shows on the site. The growing community of creators on Rumble suggests that the platform is gaining traction and attracting notable talent.
With his switch to Rumble, RiceGum embarks on a new chapter in his streaming career. As Rumble continues to expand its roster of talented streamers, the platform aims to solidify its position as a compelling alternative to established platforms like Twitch and Kick.
