Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa, a well-known American internet personality, streamer, and adult content creator, recently announced a new partnership with the platform Kick. This announcement came shortly after another prominent streamer, xQc, made headlines by signing a deal with Kick worth a staggering $100 million. Amouranth’s decision to join Kick was a significant blow to Twitch, as she was ranked as the most popular female streamer on the platform for 2022.
In a video posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) titled “It’s time,” Siragusa discussed xQc’s partnership with Kick and revealed that she had also joined the platform. Reports indicate that the partnership with Kick greatly increased Amouranth’s revenue. According to Dexerto, Amouranth’s streaming contract with Kick followed a similar concept to xQc’s deal and was arranged through the same agent. While specific figures were not disclosed, Siragusa confirmed that the collaboration with Kick had substantially boosted her income.
Amouranth emphasized that the deal with Kick was non-exclusive, allowing her to continue streaming on both Kick and Twitch. She noted that the partnership effectively doubled her income across the board. The streaming contract with Kick is just one of many ventures for Amouranth, who has garnered attention for her unique broadcasts and investments, including launching an AI version of herself and an upcoming beer made from her own body.
In a similar move, Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff, a prominent Call of Duty streamer and co-owner of FaZe Clan, also announced a non-exclusive deal with Kick. Media reports valued Kolcheff’s deal at a significant eight figures, indicating a substantial partnership with the burgeoning platform.
Amouranth and NICKMERCS’s decisions to partner with Kick, along with xQc’s monumental deal, signify a significant shift in the streaming landscape. These high-profile collaborations are reshaping the industry and positioning Kick as a formidable rival to established platforms like Twitch.
