Many gaming lovers would already know him but for them who still don’t know much about him — let me give them a small introduction of PewDiePie.
PewDiePie was born in Gothenburg and earned his industrial economics and technology management degree from Chalmers University of Technology.
He made a Youtube channel during this time at the university with the name “PewDiePie”.
Due to the growing popularity of his Youtube channel he left Chalmers to give more focus on his YouTube channel. His parents weren’t very convinced with his decision.
After listening a complete “NO” from his parents to support him to bring his YouTube channel at top level he decided to work at a hot dog stand to arrange funds for his channel.
His hard work paid off and he earned a lot of subscribers and online followers and during 2012 his channel had more than 1 million subscribers…..
Now I know people here want to know “PewDiePie net worth” so I will just go on our topic, straightaway.

Well as a YouTuber your earnings are based on the amount of views you get and your views depend on your subscribers amount.
When I last checked, PewDiePie had about 51,300,586 subscribers which is indeed a big amount.
You can make an estimate of his income from his subscribers’ amount.
In 2014, The Wall Street Journal reported that his yearly income was around $4 million from ad sales when he had about 27 million subscribers…
