Mela Bee received a stack of digital coins worth $200,000 after a group of crypto followers raided their Twitch stream last night.
Crypto Users Raid Twitch Stream
The gesture was led by Jordan Fish, who’s more popularly known in the crypto community as Cobie. Fish runs the crypto-focused podcast UpOnlyTV and has recently engaged in several so-called “Twitch raids.”
The recipient was a young Canadian artist called Mela Bee. She performed songs on guitar throughout the night alongside her boyfriend, who plays under the alias DumbBuck. Playing for more than seven hours, the pair reeled through a string of classic hits including Radiohead’s “Creep” and Blink-182’s “All The Small Things.”
Many of the crypto followers watching the stream joked that DumbBuck bore a resemblance to Sergey Nazarov, the founder of Chainlink.
The Twitch raids Fish popularized follow a simple format. Fish browses the live streaming site to find a musician playing to a small audience, then takes over hosting duties. He then calls on his 313,000 Twitter followers to join his channel and encourages the musician to download their own MetaMask wallet. Once they share the address, those watching the stream subscribe to the musician’s social channels and send ETH and other tokens as they perform songs live.
