The platform’s top earner is a nine-year-old again this year

Once again, Ryan Kaji made it to the top earner on YouTube. The nine-year-old shows on his channel "Ryan's World" Not only unboxing videos of new toys – experiments, animations and private stories are also part of the content that the boy presents to his 41.7 million fans on YouTube. In the period of twelve months (June 2019 – June 2020), Ryan Kaji is said to have earned around $ 29.5 million on YouTube. But that's not all.
