The popular Minecraft YouTuber Dream has seen a surge of new subscribers despite being on hiatus, thanks to the drama surrounding his cheating allegations.
Dream, who is a Gamer/YouTuber, is known for uploading speedrun videos of him playing Minecraft. The last video he had uploaded on his channel was back in mid-April. The video was titled “Minecraft Speedrunner VS 5 Hunters”.
He was seen playing alongside other prominent figures like Sapnap, GeorgeNotFound, BadBoyHalo, antfrost and, awesamdude. Although the video garnered 1 million views and 3.1 million likes, he has since then not posted anything new. However, he uploaded an unedited version of the same video on his second channel.
Despite not posting any content in over a month, Dream’s channel has continued to grow. According to SocialBlade, his subscriber count went up by 1.4 million, making him one of YouTube’s fastest-growing content creators.
Although reaching a million subscribers generally takes years of uploading content that is both trendy and consistent, Dream seems to have done it within the span of a month while on hiatus. However, it could either be because of the range of content he has on his channel, or the drama surrounding his cheating allegations.
Admitting to Cheating during streams
Over the time of his reign, Dream has been consistently accused of cheating during his speedrun videos. In May, however, he admitted to all the cheating allegations that had been made against him. Dream admitted to having cheats enabled during his Minecraft speed runs. On May 30, he posted on Twitlonger to address the issue. He stated:
“When the drama first started I cared more about defending myself and being right, than about figuring out what was actually going on and I shot myself in the foot by doing it. I felt really terrible for the mods because I dragged them through the mud even though they were mostly right.”
Dream’s main YouTube channel has now well over 22.8 million subscribers. Judging by the rate at which his channel is growing, the YouTuber will cross 23 million subscribers or more in no time.
