Adin Ross, the young and charismatic streamer, has made a move to the newly launched streaming platform, Kick, leaving behind his former home on Twitch. The decision has come as a surprise to many, especially given that the streamer had been relatively quiet on Twitch over the past few weeks.
However, in a recent video, Adin shed light on the reasons behind his departure from Twitch and the move to Kick. As one of the most influential figures among the younger generation of influencers, Adin has faced his share of criticism and controversies over the past few months. The arrest of his mentor and close friend, Andrew Tate, led to a wave of backlash against the young streamer for showing sympathy towards his friend.
Despite the criticism, Adin has always been vocal about his opinions and his disappointment with Twitch. In a recent podcast, he expressed his frustration with the platform, stating that he and other popular creators like Kai Cenat and I Show Speed should be receiving million-dollar deals from Twitch, given their crucial role in promoting the platform.
Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse as Adin began to receive threats from Twitch management. He was warned of an indefinite ban if he continued to “preach.” This only further fueled Adin’s determination to improve himself and he has been focusing on his daily workout routines and meditation practices to reflect on life.
Despite the obstacles, Adin has remained resolute in his decision to make a move to a new platform. He teased his departure from Twitch and soon after, it was announced that he had signed a two-year exclusive contract with Kick.com for a reported sum of $150 million. On February 13, he made his debut on Kick and his first stream was a resounding success, attracting over 100,000 live viewers.
However, Kick, like many new platforms, has also faced its share of controversies. It was revealed that the company’s stakeholders are associated with infamous online casinos, leading to a wave of criticism from some quarters. Nevertheless, Adin remains optimistic about his new home on Kick and is eager to start a new chapter in his streaming career.
