Both platforms joined forces for the benefit of content creators.
In the wake of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic that affects most of the countries around the world, the dance floors have stopped moving, but not the will to create. In support of all the musicians who exhibit their work on them, Soundcloud and Twitch have teamed up to launch a new service that will help their users to obtain economic benefits through these services.
SoundCloud Pro, SoundCloud Premier and Repost by SoundCloud users will need to create their Twitch account and fill out a form. In a matter of days (if the platform is used correctly) they will receive an email notifying their affiliate status, an option that will give them the possibility of using different Twitch monetization tools to start earning money in a few days.
Twitch‘s monetization tools include ads and subscriptions. To opt for the “affiliate” status, a Twitch user must have at least 50 followers and at least 500 total streaming minutes in the past month. In addition, you must have seven different broadcasts in the last 30 days and an average of three or more viewers in the same period.
