Kick.com is an up-and-rising new streaming platform that is quickly increasing its user traffic. It even made a profit in the first quarter of its existence, which is a very hard thing to do. But, it still has work to do if it wants to surpass its biggest rival, Twitch.
One of Kick’s tactics for doing that is attracting its biggest content creators with lucrative deals. This strategy is working very well so far, as many streamers and viewers switched from Twitch to Kick. Below we will reveal the top 10 biggest deals that Kick signed with popular content creators.
1. Adin Ross ($150 Million)
We start off with Adin Ross, who was one of the first streamers to switch from Twitch to Kick. According to him, he signed the biggest streaming deal in history. This stunning deal is reportedly worth around $150 million.

This is something that Dr Disrespect is up for. But, he will try to balance his streaming time up to 3 days a week. The reason behind this is the fact that he also owns a game studio, which takes a lot of his time.
His video content is super amusing and you can catch him playing battle royal games like Call of Duty, PUBG, Fortnite, and some more.
