10 Richest Video Gamers In The World Today

10. Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf

Net worth: $3 million

Bugha shot to stardom in July 2019 when he won the 2019 Fortnite World Cup, taking home the groundbreaking $3 million prize.

Fortnite has proved to be one of the biggest gaming sensations of all time, entering popular culture in such a profound way that it feels like online games will soon be categorised as ‘BF’ and AF’ when marking their date. Dominating our news feeds, gaming platforms and even finding a footing in mainstream media, it was no surprise when Fortnite announced their own world cup, and in 2019 it was a bigger deal than ever, with the winner taking home $3 million.

Before winning this competition, Bugha, respected among his Fortnite contemporaries, was still doing well for someone still not old enough to leave school, earning roughly $25,000 in all competitions.

After taking home the trophy, he gained respect from his competition and media outlets, as he announced he will, aside from a new desk, buy nothing and invest the rest. Smart decision Bugha. Smart decision.
