The Riches of Dinglederper
How rich is Dinglederper? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $250,000, earned through success in her various online endeavors. Her online fame has gained her numerous opportunities, including sponsorships and partnerships with several high profile companies. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
There is very limited information about Dinglederper’s life before her rise to fame online as she has not shared a lot of detail regarding her family, childhood, and education. At a young age she played a lot of video games, and developed a strong affinity with them. While attending college, she decided that she would try uploading her own content through YouTube, as it was becoming a great platform for gamers like her to earn income.
Content creators can earn income on YouTube through advertising revenue provided by the Google AdSense program. The website has become highly popular, and is one of the biggest sources of online videos on the internet. Its fame has even attracted corporations and companies who have also invested in a presence on the website, for exposure as well as additional income. Some of the videos which can be seen on the website include video clips, movie trailers, live streams, educational videos, and many more. The website was founded by three former PayPal employees, before it was bought by Google for $1.65 billion.
When Dingle’s channel started, she posted various types of videos without much of a focus, including of her dancing and also playing the game “Starcraft”. Eventually her popularity grew as she began playing the game “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” (CS: GO). It is an online multi-player first-person shooter developed by Valve Corporation, and the fourth in the “Counter-Strike” series. The game has players join a team of terrorists or counter-terrorists, each with its own goal of either eliminating the team or completing separate objectives. They do so for a series of rounds until one is declared the winner.

The game has received a lot of positive reviews for its gameplay, and faithfulness to its predecessors. It has drawn in at least 11 million players on a monthly basis, with the game recently switching to a free-to-play model. Eventually, as her interest in the game died down, she decided to do more vlog content, but she also played a lot of other video games, including “Grand Theft Auto V” and “League of Legends”.
Streaming and Other Projects
Eventually Dinglederper decided to pursue another lucrative means of online income, which is highly popular among gamers and gaming YouTube personalities. She began streaming on the website Twitch, which is one of the most popular streaming platforms online, and the hub of eSports competition broadcasts. Recently, the platform has been implementing chatting streams or in-real-life streams which she has also taken advantage of. The website has over a million average in concurrent users, while 15 million use the website on a daily basis. They also have over 2.2 million broadcasters active on it monthly.
In recent months, she’s been playing a lot of the video game “Fortnite Battle Royale”, which was released by Epic Games in 2017. Like most games of the battle royale genre, 100 players land on an island, try to obtain items to fight other players, and so become the last person standing. It was created as a spin-off of “Fornite: Save the World” and as a response to the increasing popularity of the battle royale genre. It has become a successful endeavor for the developers, drawing in over 125 million players in less than a year, and bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars each month.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Dinglederper was previously in a relationship with James Varga, also known as PhantomL0rd. The two often collaborated on content together during their relationship. Since then, she has not been reported as dating anyone new, with no sign of her having a relationship on social media. According to her, she mainly resides in Las Vegas, though at times visits her home town in New Jersey. She is a dog lover, and owns three dogs, and also loves spending time outdoors, often travelling to resorts, beaches, parties, and other events.
Similar to numerous YouTube and Twitch personalities, she is highly active online through accounts on social media. She has an account on Instagram on which she has over 112,000 followers, and uses the platform to post personal photos, showcasing a bit of her lifestyle. She enjoys wearing clothes that showcase her body as she spends a lot of time developing it at the gym. She has a Twitter account which she uses to share updates with her followers and promote her streaming content, as well as to promote several advocacies she supports. She has 231 patrons on the website Patreon, a subscription service which allows her to gain support from fans directly, with her providing exclusive content for them.
