In a recent livestream, popular YouTube streamer Thomas "Sykkuno," who is known for his wholesome personality and kind-hearted demeanor, stated that he would prefer if his viewers simply enjoyed his stream and showcased their support through engagement and interaction instead of monetary donations.
He revealed that he already has a lucrative YouTube deal, which prompted him to urge his fans not to spend their money on channel subscriptions, but rather on themselves. Referring to his contract with YouTube, he stated:
"Doing perfectly fine moneywise"

In a recently broadcasted stream, Sykkuno expressed gratitude for his fans' support but then emphasized that he didn't want them to spend their money on him.
Instead, Thomas encouraged his viewers to enjoy the stream and support it by showing up and having a good time:
"Guys, you don't have to sub or anything. Just showing up to the stream is all I want. The fact is, and I'm not trying to brag or something, but doing perfectly fine moneywise, you know? Got a good deal, moved to YouTube."
Speaking more about the topic, he continued:
"I think the best thing you can do for the stream is just the same thing that was always kind of the best thing to do, just show up and have a good time hopefully and don't be mean. That's pretty much it."
He reiterated that he didn't need the donations as such and urged his fans to spend the money on themselves rather than on his channel. He, however, mentioned that he was still appreciative of the fans who subbed.
