Troubled YouTuber SkyDoesMinecraft puts US$900,000 price tag on his channel with 11 million subscribers ↺
It's certainly not the first time that a vastly popular game streamer has fallen from grace due to their unacceptable behavior. Just a few months ago, we reported on a high-profile YouTuber who shamelessly stole half a million dollars from his fans by orchestrating a crypto scam, only to treat himself with a brand-new Tesla. Now, another well-known YouTuber who became famous for his Minecraft videos is looking for an even bigger payday by selling his channel, which is was previously called "SkyDoesMinecraft".
According to a report by PC Gamer, the owner of the channel in question is Adam Dahlberg, who currently finds himself in serious trouble after his ex girlfriend accused him of appalling behavior including assault, harassment and verbal abuse back in January. The YouTuber has subsequently disappeared from social media and also stopped uploading videos on his successful SkyDoesMinecraft channel, which has amassed close to 4 billion views and purportedly generated more than US$8 million in revenue.
Instead of commenting on these allegations, Dahlberg is now trying to sell his YouTube channel "Sky Does Everything" on FameSwap, where prospective buyers have to shell out US$900,000 to acquire the channel with more than 11.2 million subscribers. The description states that SkyDoesMinecraft plans to delete his content before transferring the channel to its new owner, but the steep asking price apparently includes the coveted diamond play button that YouTubers receive as a reward for surpassing the ten-million-subscribers mark. However, it remains highly questionable how successful a content creator could be with an acquired YouTube channel, even if the new Minecraft content could match the quality of the previous videos.
