How CaptainSparklez Built His Net Worth Playing Minecraft
Most parents are probably going to frown if their kid tells them they are going to drop out of college and play video games online, but for CaptainSparklez, that exact plan didn’t work out too badly. The famous YouTube Minecrafter posts videos of himself playing Minecraft, and it works for him given he has earned over $15 million in YouTube ad revenue alone. He’s made another $14 million from his merchandise sales which have helped him build a nice little nest egg for himself. In total, he is now estimated to have a net worth of about $13.7 million, which is pretty impressive for a college dropout.
While CaptainSparklez is known online by his famous moniker, in real life he is Jordan Maron, a kid who simply likes posting videos of himself gaming. Today Jordan is estimated to make about $4.8 million per year, and he spent quite a bit of his total earnings on a $4.5 million home in Hollywood Hills. It doesn’t hurt that his fans are almost as hardcore as he is, and are willing to buy up any type of merchandise he offers them from baseball hats to tee-shirts to action figures and plush toys.
Of course, while he is a multi-millionaire now, it didn’t happen overnight. CaptainSparklez started posting videos on YouTube in 2010. His earnings have been pretty linear increasing as his subscriber base slowly grew over the last decade. While most YouTube sensations ‘go viral’ and experience a huge jump in followers, CaptainSparklez has managed to double his views every year which is what has led to his steady income stream. If he continues to double his followers, it is not unexpected that he could double his current earning potential by the end of the year.
While he hasn’t publicly said how much he earns, when you look at his 1.99 billion views on YouTube you can do the YouTube math. Plus, he also shows off plenty of his high dollar purchases such as his flashy sports cars and his new house in Hollywood. He owns at least three muscle cars and treats his classic cars as an investment that he can also get a lot of enjoyment out of. Of course, his house is an investment as well, and it is one sleek bachelor pad. It has three stories of glass balconies and mirrors and overlooks the Sunset Strip.
While he is still posting online regularly for his fans, CaptainSparklez is currently working hard on starting a new mobile gaming franchise with Howard Marks. The company started a crowdfunding campaign last summer and is looking to dominate the mobile competitive gaming market.
