The Riches of Ibxtoycat
Early Life and Online Beginnings
He has been interested in video games for a long time, and discovered a potential for a video gaming career thanks to the online platform YouTube. It is a video sharing website owned by Google and is one of the most popular websites on the internet ranking second in traffic according to Alexa Internet.
The website allows users to upload their own video content which can then be viewed by others. Viewers can rate, comment, report, and share videos while also having the option to subscribe to users they enjoy. It has become a large source of online video media including short films, video clips, live streams, educational videos, video blogs (vlogs), and many more. The website has become so popular that numerous companies and corporations have decided to invest in their own channels for exposure as well as additional revenue. Channels can earn advertising revenue through the Google AdSense program.
Cat started his channel without a clear direction, except for the fact that he wanted to produce video game content. He posted videos of various games he was interested in for the next few months, until he started to focus on the game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2”. It is a first person shooter game developed by Infinity Ward, released in 2007 to huge critical acclaim. It is a direct sequel to “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare” continuing the story, and follows a group of Special Forces soldiers known as Task Force 141, headed by Captain Soap MacTavish.
Later on, he shifted his focus towards the game “Minecraft”, as most of his viewers were enjoying that type of content. It is a sandbox video game which allows players to build using a variety of blocks inside a 3D procedurally generated world. Players can also engage in other activities such as combat, resource gathering, crafting, and exploration. Since its release, the game has won numerous awards and received critical acclaim. It is regarded as one of the most influential games in history and is the bestselling video game of all time, selling over 176 million copies as of 2019.
While he does a lot of “Minecraft” videos, he has tried playing other games on his main channel from time to time. He has done videos on popular battle royale games such as “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” and “Fortnite Battle Royale”. The latter is one of the most popular games of recent years, drawing in over 125 million players since its release in 2018. In Battle Royale games, up to 100 players fight to be the last person standing.

Other Channels and Projects
Aside from his gaming content, Ibxtoycat also shared his other interests through a secondary channel called Ibx2cat, focused particularly on his love for geography. He has done videos on countries, capital cities, facts, and many others. He mentioned that he created the second channel to focus on topics away from gaming, but has since developed its focus on geography.

Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, very little is known in terms of any of Cat’s romantic relationships. He has not shared a lot about this aspect of his life, and many believe that he is single as he travelled the world solo. He loves animals and often poses photos with dogs, cats, and uncommon pets such as owls. It was always his dream to travel the world, and the income he has earned online has allowed him to do so, including to locations such as Tokyo, Amsterdam and Las Vegas.
He has over 10,000 followers on his Instagram account which gives a bit of insight into his life away from YouTube, often posting pictures of the various places he’s visited. He also has a Twitter account which has over 50,000 followers, and he uses the platform to promote his work while also sharing some of his daily thoughts. Another account he has is on Facebook, with over 2,600 followers, however, it has not been active for a year, last posting during the time he took a trip to New Zealand.
