Net worth and salary
As of March 2020, Moonmoon_ow’s net worth is estimated at $1.7 million.

He averages at around 8,600 views every stream, with his highest viewership during a stream close to 20,000. He makes money through donations, ad revenue, subscribers, and merchandise.
Twitch streamers receive 50% of the subscription fee, eg about $2.50 from a $4.99 tier; Aa the popularity of the streamer grows, so does their percentage. The streamer can receive up to 100% of the subscription fee as a way for Twitch to encourage them to remain on their platform. Streamers can make money when fans cheer with bits in the chat (known as the Cheering Feature). Cheers are animated chat emotes that use bits. “Cheer1” brings up a grey bouncing triangle and “Cheer100” costs $1.4 and generates a dancing purple diamond.
Fans can Cheer any amount they want to, as the amount of money increases, so does the size of the emote. A fractured red star represents “Cheer10000” which costs $140. Streamers receive 1 cent for every bit, and Twitch keeps 0.4 cents. On Twitch, the fans can donate money through the streamer’s Paypal and cryptocurrencies such as ethereim, bitcoin or litecoin. Streamers have the option to link third-party services with Twitch which allow additional features such as alerts and donations.
The most popular services are Stream Elements, Gaming for Good, Muxy, StreamLabs and StreamTip. The services create a donation page on the channel’s server.
