In a recent “Lockdown” episode with Charess Kurogane, one of Cebu’s finest streamers and Cosplayers, she lends her expertise in the hopes to inspire more Cebuano streamers.
According to Kurogane, the pandemic saw the rise of numbers in the streaming community.
Twitch reported that it registered 3.5 million new streamers last year. While most countries as still in a form of lockdown, the streaming platform sees continuous growth in their members and users.
STREAMING AS A WAY OF EARNING
Among the perks of streaming, according to Kurogane, is the ability for streamers to earn extra income besides their full-time job.
Kurogane shared that she had a regular job but quit and started focusing as a full-time streamer.
“Certain metrics have to be met in order for you to earn,” she explains.
For Facebook, you have to set up a streaming page, meet the required minimum number of followers and streaming hours, while other streaming platforms require longer hours of streaming, depending on their metrics.
Like Kurogane, famous full-time streamers in the country include Alodia Gosiengfiao and ChooxTV, who just recently bought his new house all from his streaming income.
While for some streaming might be easy, Kurogane explains that she also had her struggles when she first started.
“It was hard at first because talking on screen for hours is not easy especially if you’re shy… But eventually, you will learn the ropes,” she said.
“There’s no secreted to getting many views, or earning more likes, you just have to continue streaming and be passionate about it,” Kurogane explains.
