The most subscribed youtube channels offer very different types of content, ranging from humour to video games and all kinds of vlogs. Most of these YouTubers have attracted thousands and millions of subscribers outside the control of media giants. And for that, they have built up this huge community of admirers that has given them a lot of power and independence.
Here are some of the most subscribed youtube channels in the world.
This youtube channel has 60.4 million subscribers; it’s one of the examples of the possibility of earning money through YouTube. His salary in 2017 was $12 million.
Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg is a unique Swedish video game commentator. In his videos, he plays different video games, while a window in the upper corner of the screen shows his reactions to what is happening.
His YouTube account exceeds 60 million subscribers.

However, he has not yet been excluded from YouTube.
Another of the world’s most popular YouTubers: it has 27.3 million subscribers.
He’s a Spaniard from a Norwegian mother. Ruben Doblas Gundersen started on YouTube at the age of 16. He was recording videos in his room when he was playing video games. He stands out for his humour, jokes and improvised monologues with his friends.

Fernanfloo describes his style as “absurd humour” and believes that his popularity can be explained by the fact that his style contrasts with most people’s tidy lives.
