For years, Amouranth has been one of the most popular Twitch streamers on the entire platform, and it doesn’t look like her popularity is going to wane anytime soon. Amouranth is making a ton of money off Twitch, as confirmed by the recent Twitch data leaks, but she has a rather diversified income stream. She’s one of the people to get in on the NFT (non-fungible token) craze, and now an NFT of her likeness is going for a ridiculous amount of money in an online auction.

The bidding for the Amouranth NFT has surpassed $125,000 at the time of this writing, which is impressive, to say the least. Amouranth tweeted out her reaction to the bidding, saying “I guess I’ll be doing this again,” indicating that there will almost certainly be more Amouranth NFTs sold at later dates. Of course, it’s possible that the people bidding on the Amouranth NFT aren’t doing so legitimately, but if the bids are real, it will be huge for the Twitch streamer.

For those who don’t know what NFTs are, they are oftentimes digital art pieces that people pay to own the original license for. So while anyone could simply click on Amouranth’s tweet and save the image, they wouldn’t have the license to prove their ownership of it. NFTs have become increasingly popular these past couple of years, alongside cryptocurrencies, and it will definitely be interesting to see if they continue to take off as they have been recently.

In any case, if this Amouranth NFT auction is legitimate, it seems that the Twitch star won’t have trouble making ends meet if any of her bans ever stick. Amouranth has been banned from Twitch on numerous occasions for a variety of reasons, though she has always been allowed to return to the streaming platform afterwards. There was some concern that the latest Amouranth ban was going to be permanent, but after a few days, she was able to hop back on and continue making content.

Whenever Amouranth is on Twitch, she is consistently one of the most popular content creators on the streaming site. Recently, Twitch introduced a new IRL category called Animals, Aquariums, and Zoos, and Amouranth immediately became its top streamer. This was thanks to Amouranth’s ranch streams where she legitimately shows animals.

In the meantime, one has to wonder if other top Twitch streamers will try to get in on the NFT action as well, now that Amouranth’s NFT has reached such a high price at auction.
