Who is Buddha?
There’s a hardcore community of GTA roleplayers who have stuck around through the game’s various updates. This includes Buddha, or Lucas Ramos, a Twitch streamer that rose to fame thanks to GTA RP. Buddha had been streaming on the platform for years, but it wasn’t until NoPixel 3.0 became popular that Lucas exploded in popularity himself.
Buddha’s RP character is called Lang Buddha, a character that has been around for a while and has seen multiple iterations over time.
Despite his popularity on GTA RP, Buddha is also known for the games Arma 2 and Rust. To close out his streams, he often joins TrainwrecksTV and xQc on gambling/slots streams (although these days xQc no longer does gambling streams).
In a Twitch leak on 06/10/2021 documents revealed that Buddha had supposedly made $1,158,170.55 from Twitch payouts alone from August 2019 to October 2021. This total does not include revenue from other platforms such as Youtube, Sponsorships, or merch. Some streamers have confirmed the numbers to be about right however it is speculative right now.

How Does Buddha Make Money?
Subs – Twitch Subs are split between the streamer and Twitch. New streamers are in a Tier 1 bracket and will get a 50/50 split making their subs worth $2.50. Once a streamer is pulling in enough views 1000+ per month they can re-negotiate their split to either a 60/40 split (Tier 2) or 70/30 (Tier 3) if they are really popular.
Bits -For every bit a streamer receives they get $0.01.
Ads – When streamers run ads on Twitch they make around $10-20 CPM depending on their contracts. This means they earn $10-20 per 1000 viewers on the stream when the ad runs.
Ads -Youtube channels get paid per 1000 views (CPM). Usually in the gaming niche creators will make $2-7 CPM meaning they will get paid $2-7 for every 1000 views on their channel. However, not all views are monetized due to ad blockers, etc. Most channels get paid for around 80% of their views.
