The co-owner of 100T made a cameo appearance in Sykkuno’s announcement video, which was mostly intended at assuring his fans that nothing would change following the transition except the URL. Sykkuno moved from being a part-time streamer who appeared on huge Twitch streams every now and then to commanding his own audience of four million people.
The last ‘National Sykkuno Day’ on Twitch took place on May 1, culminating in an emotional stream that had many wondering if it was his final appearance on the platform. Sykkuno has acquired a passionate fanbase over the course of his career as one of the beloved members of the ‘Amigos,’ and many of them sent out meaningful comments to the streamer on May 1 in honor of ‘National Sykkuno Day.’
By the end of his stream, Sykkuno had become teary-eyed and had delivered an emotional “thank you” to everyone who had supported him. The soft-spoken streamer was lured away from Twitch and will now broadcast for his 2.66 million YouTube fans. Throughout his rise on Twitch, Sykkuno swiftly established himself as the platform’s wholesome streamer, despite a few brief instances of turmoil.
The streamer is the latest in a long line of great talent to switch to Google’s side of the industry, abandoning Amazon’s streaming service. Ludwig, Valky, DrLupo, TimTheTatman, and others have all secured exclusive contracts with YouTube Gaming. Sykkuno will make his YouTube Gaming debut on May 3rd, only days after bidding his former streaming home farewell.
