Since its launch in 2005, YouTube has become a virtual platform for the next generation of rising stars, the so-called "YouTubers" who spend most of their time filming and producing content, but do not make mistakes but collect millions of dollars.
As YouTube matured, its stars become more sophisticated in marketing for themselves, translating into bigger rounds, more lucrative deals, higher content quality and higher merchandise sales. It is no secret that YouTube's top stars use video clips and advertisements to earn a living on the platform, as well as name and fame for themselves. Some of them, over the past few years, have blocked large offers from services such as Netflix or YouTube Red.
