PewDiePie has stacked up the cash for the past decade. What is PewDiePie's net worth? It's a question a simple Google search fails to answer, so we'll have to dig deeper here. Let's go!

PewDiePie's breakout feels like ages ago and while researching this article, I found out... it was ages ago! Somehow, I'm shocked by the fact that we're growing old. Anyway, for the last decade, the Swedish YouTube sensation PewDiePie has been making more money than a lot of us can compute. How much precisely? It's difficult to tell, but we will make an attempt.

What Is PewDiePie's Net Worth?

PewDiePie making most of his money on YouTube should make estimating his net worth easier, but it sadly doesn't. A quick net search reveals that Pewds has been making anywhere between 9 and 16 million dollars since becoming the most popular YouTuber on the planet seemingly overnight back in 2013. That's 7-8 years with an average of around $12 million, which lands him at anywhere in the $80-100 million realm.

Two things to clarify about those numbers:

  1. This is income before taxes.
  2. Income does not equal net worth.

So what is PewDiePie's net worth?

The quick Google search won't do the trick this time. We will save you the click: it will say $40 million. That's 100% not true though, and it's potentially off by a lot.

How do we know that? By asking Felix Kjellberg.

By the Swede's reaction upon seeing that $40 million figure, we can safely assume that his actual worth is at the very least 50% over that number, so $60 million. Can't really go for much more over that, but $60 million is still more than respectable for someone that started as some dude screaming while playing horror games.
