The 100 Thieves owner and popular streamer Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter has re-signed to YouTube for 2022. This continues her time partnering with and streaming for the organization since early 2020.

Returning to YouTube

Back in January of 2020, Valkyrae left Twitch to stream exclusively on YouTube. That was a multi-year deal that ended in early 2022, which she acknowledged on her main Twitter account.

The post hinted at a break or a switch in platform, but a tweet from Valkyrae on her alternate account confirmed an announcement video she was waiting on.

As it turns out, that announcement video was a re-signing for YouTube, marked with the red car and some meta-commentary on her decision. The video itself mentions Twitch as the other option — her original streaming platform before joining YouTube — but she simply stated, “I’m staying on YouTube.”

YouTube keeps a lot of big streamers

This marks another big streaming name on YouTube. Some of the platform’s other recent acquisitions include YouTube stream team include Ludwig Ahgren (who joined in November of 2021), Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar (who joined in September of 2021) and Benjamin “DrLupo” Lupo (who joined in late August of 2021). All four of these streamers have massive followings and exclusive content that moved over from their Twitch channels to YouTube.

Valkyrae joined YouTube before all three of the streamers mentioned above, showing big streamers the opportunity that YouTube presents, and now she is continuing her career on the platform that supports her.
