The Wealth of Zachary Piona

His online fame has led to numerous opportunities, including collaborative work with other popular names. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little is known about Zachary’s life before his rise to fame on Vine. There are not a lot of details about his family, childhood, and education – it’s only known that he grew up with an older sister. Eventually, he discovered the app Vine and figured that he could start making his own content on the site.
Vine was owned by Twitter, and during the peak of its popularity it rivaled Instagram. It allowed its users to post six second looping videos, and share them with its own social network which could also be integrated with other platforms. The app contained numerous videos which can be filtered through theme, trending, and other categories. In 2015 during the peak of its popularity, it had over 200 million active users, but eventually the app’s uploads were disabled by Twitter the following year. In 2017, the app was shut down and its videos were uploaded to an online archive. Since then, numerous short form video services have arisen to try and gain the same amount of success that Vine achieved.
Rise to Fame
In 2013, Piona created his account and posted his first vine. He became an instant hit on the app and soon became a member of the million club, Viners who’ve surpassed the one million follower mark. His Vines would gain over 1.5 billion loops with averages of millions of loops for each of them.
His popularity would lead him to participate in the comedy tour entitled “Hello!” organized by Wahlid Mohammad, appearing with Mohammad and Cody Ko. The show consisted of 20 minutes per Viner, along with a meet and greet as well as an after party. They travelled to several locations around the country with tickets ranging from $40 to $100.
During the same year, he appeared at the 2015 VidCon as one of the 13 chosen Viners to represent the app. Vidcon or video conference is held annually in Southern California, and is the largest of its kind, created by the Vlogbrothers. Since its inception, it has gathered numerous content creators, industry representatives, and video viewers from around the world. It is now owned by Viacom, but remains as a standalone subsidiary.
Expanding His Reach
When Vine shut down, Zachary had to find other means of continuing his online career, and like many other Vine personalities, this meant transferring their attention to other platforms. He started building his Instagram account, posting photos and videos akin to his Vine account though not limited in scope. Instagram is a photo and video sharing website owned by Google. It allows its users to post media to the public or to pre-approved followers. It has become one of the most popular social media services in the world, with over a billion registered users.
He also created his own YouTube channel, which contains various types of videos such as comedy sketches, video blogs (vlogs), and question and answer (Q&A) videos. The website is one of the most popular in the world and has numerous types of videos available, including television show clips, music videos, documentary films, live streams, and many more. It has become a source of income for many content creatures, as Google allows users to earn income through the Google AdSense program. Aside from individual content creators, corporations have also created their own channels on the website.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of Piona’s romantic relationships – he doesn’t post about this aspect of his life publicly, and prefers to keep it away from the spotlight. Several sources state that he is single, and there is no evidence to prove otherwise, although he’s posted photos of himself alongside a girl who is rumored to be his girlfriend.
