Daniel Middleton was born in Aldershot, UK on November 8, 1991. As of 2020 it’s estimated that DanTDM has a net worth of $35 million. While studying at Northampton University he started his first YouTube channel – which mainly covered Pokémon. Later in 2012, he started today’s famous TheDiamondMinecart channel purely based around the popular game, Minecraft.
Minecraft is one of the biggest games on the planet, being the most watched game on YouTube in 2019 and being sold to Microsoft for $2.5 billion. Now the question is, who’s getting all those sweet, sweet views that put Minecraft at thetop of the YouTube Most Watched list? Well, chief among the thousands of Minecraft lets players is DanTDM, the British YouTuber who set the Guinness World Record for most views on a dedicated Minecraft channel, with 7.9 billion at the time of the record, which has since been absolutely smashed, currently standing at over 17 billion as of late 2020.
Of course, that number climbs every single day, and will likely only increase as Minecraft isn’t showing any signs of slowing. But by just how many views is Dan breaking his own World Record on the daily? Well on average Dan’s channel gains 6.5 million views every single day, which makes Dan not just the biggest Minecraft YouTuber, but also arguably the richest, making at least $17,000 a day, or a whopping $6.1 million a year, and that’s just from the views on his channel. Add to that his merch lines, brand deals, and live shows, and DanTDM has mined some serious diamonds.
