Who is Daidus?
Daidus was born on 23 May 1999, in the United States of America, And is known for his YouTube channel on which he creates art and illustrations which he brings to life through animation. His anime and cartoon endeavors on his channel have gained him hundreds of thousands of subscribers in the span of a few years.
The Wealth of Daidus
How rich is Daidus? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $700,000, earned through a successful career online. His YouTube fame has led him to numerous opportunities, including work with various companies, and collaborations. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Art Beginnings
Very little is known about Daidus’ life outside of his online work. It is known that he is half-Asian though he has not mentioned anything specific about his family. There are also no details about his childhood and education. The one thing that is assured is that he developed a strong passion for the arts at a young age, beginning with drawing and illustration.
He eventually learned of the platform DeviantArt, which he used to promote his digital works. DeviantArt is an artwork, photography, and videography community which began in 2000 – artworks are categorized depending on the type of art uploaded by the user. There are also groups, polls, and portfolios on the website, which is run by a company headquartered in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. The official mascot of the website was a small robotic character with devilish features named Fella, which was displayed on the website until 2014. Three years later, the website reported having over 250 million submissions and over 26 million members. However, sometime during the same year, they were acquired by Wix.com in a deal apparently worth $36 million.
While Daidus was gaining popularity on DeviantArt, it gave him enough confidence to pursue other platforms to promote his work. He decided to also start working on YouTube, especially since he had already developed his animation skills. YouTube is a video-sharing website owned by Google and is one of the most popular websites in the world. It allows users to upload their own videos for others to view, rate, and comment on.
Users can also gain subscribers if viewers like their content and popularity on the website leads to income through the Google AdSense program which monetizes their videos based on ads viewed, interactions, views, and more. Over the years, numerous types of videos can be seen on the platform, such as educational, movie trailers, live streams, short films, and the like. Its popularity has also led to corporations and companies investing in their own channels for advertising and additional income. According to the website, they have over 400 hours of content being uploaded to YouTube each minute.
Daidus began posting animated videos on YouTube in 2017, and did so without much of an introduction. He just began showing his drawings and animation, mainly to portray numerous aspects of his life, beginning with a video about his life as a half Asian, and how difficult it is especially since his Asian side is not physically noticeable. The video went viral, and led his popularity to skyrocket. With a lot of positive attention towards his videos, he continued on, and has been noted for his comedic narration of his videos, which has contributed to their popularity.

Aside from his voice, and a few details about his life, not a lot is known about him personally, such as his real name and even what he looks like. He hasn’t shared anything too personal, only stories deemed comedic or entertaining for his audience.
Aside from his YouTube channel, he is also highly active on several other on-line platforms including social media websites. He has an account on Instagram which features some of his work, as well as a few of his other passions such as anime. He also does comic strips, and illustrations based on his life. He has a Twitter account too, with over 30,000 followers, on which he promotes his recent projects, including his plush toys.
