Twitch streamer Ludwig Ahgren has become the most subscribed Twitch streamer on the platform, according to statistics, thanks to an insane “Subathon” stream, which has been going on for over 6 days.
After recovering from a burst attachment, Ludwig decided on March 14 to run a “Subathon” stream, which would allow viewers to control how much time he had to spend streaming by subscribing to him.
Each subscription will add 15 seconds to the timer, which means that if he were to receive at least one sub every 15 seconds, and if he adhered to the rules, he would technically have to keep streaming forever.
Despite some setbacks, Strømmen has attracted a lot of attention. Ludwig has had over 30,000 viewers just when they were asleep, with their awake streams topping 75,000 viewers.
Ludwig becomes No1 subbed streamer
On March 21, 2021, Ludwig became the most subscribed Twitch streamer, overshadowing the Minecraft streamer Ranboo, according to statistics from TwitchTracker, which shows that his undercount reached over 92,635.
Twitch does not disclose subscription figures, and these figures are only estimates provided by Twitch Tracker. However, statistics overall from u / raddog86 estimate Ludwig’s current sum to 91,852, so we know we’re in the right ballpark.
Ranboo has fallen to second place, with TwitchTracker data showing that his active number of subscribers is just over 71k, while xQc is in third.
All of these subs have put a lot of money in Ludwig’s pocket. Statistics from u / raddog86 estimate that over $ 350,000 has been spent on subscriptions, and Ludwig will receive nearly $ 150,000 after tax. Half the money, but he intends to donate to charity.
Ludwig has a long, long way to go if he is to reach the record that Ninja had, which reached over 269,000 active subscribers back in April 2018.
As things stand, Ludwig has exceeded the 150-hour mark with 60 hours left on the timer. There is a marginal decline at the moment, with estimates showing that he will stream for about 300 hours.
The power is not expected to last that long. Originally, the subscriptions were supposed to add 10 seconds to the timer, but an error caused 15 seconds to be added instead.
each sub was supposed to add 10 seconds to the time, but it accidentally changed to 15, so he was tricked and now his chat rages

Guinness’ world record for longest livestream is 259 hours, and it looks like Ludwig will soon darken that feat. However, as he had to break the current into pieces, it does not officially count.
Whether Ludwig will continue much longer with the current system remains to be seen, but it is likely that at some point he will need to reduce the time a subscription adds to the timer. Otherwise, he may well end up streaming forever.
