SkyDoesMinecraft is Selling His YouTube Channel

Popular Minecraft YouTuber SkyDoesMinecraft is selling his YouTube channel with the sale of the 12 million sub channel likely breaking YouTube’s ToS.

The massive success of Minecraft following its initial release in 2011 turned Mojang’s open-world sandbox game into a worldwide phenomenon. The block-based open world game has been one of the most popular games in the world since its release and has remained near the top of streaming sites like Twitch with many creators becoming internet icons through the game. Among the first big wave of YouTube creators to make it big through the game would be one of the game’s most recognizable stars over its entire life, Adam “SkyDoesMinecraft” Dahlberg.

SkyDoesMinecraft first rose to fame during the early 2010s with Minecraft fans quickly latching onto the personality as his channel would grow to over 12 million subscribers at its peak, at the time ranking among the top 100 most-subscribed creators on YouTube. However, SkyDoesMinecraft’s burgeoning YouTube career has taken multiple twists and turns since his peak with the creator temporarily dropping the SkyDoesMinecraft moniker entirely and shifting to music. Now, with recent allegations of abuse and sexual harassment swirling over the former Minecraft creator, a recent listing on social media marketplace FameSwap shows that Dahlberg is looking to part with the account.


A listing posted just under a month on FameSwap shows the SkyDoesEverything YouTube channel for sale with the channel’s over 11 million subscribers making it one of the largest YouTube channels up for sale on the website. While the site does not currently show any offers for the channel, the main account has been listed for sale for a hefty sum of $900,000. It is worth noting that selling a monetized channel does fall against YouTube’s terms of services, so any user looking to purchase the channel would likely be at risk of swift action from YouTube moderation.


SkyDoesMinecraft’s apparent attempts to sell the YouTube channel that gained him internet celebrity status in his heyday comes as the creator faces serious accusation from both former partners and co-workers. A post earlier this year from a former partner named Elizabeth claims Dahlberg is guilty of abuse, stealing money to fund a drug addiction, and sexual harassment with several members of his own team, Sky Media Productions, backing up those claims. Dahlberg has not made any public announcement of the attempted sale of his YouTube channel, though the seller’s name suggests it is legitimate.


The sale of the massive channel comes as Minecraft has seen a new wave of content creators rising to stardom on the platform since the peak of SkyDoesMinecraft. Popular Twitch streamer Dream rose to popularity through his popular “Dream SMP” Minecraft series and a report from YouTube at the end of last year showed that Minecraft videos on the platform had combined for over one trillion views across the website. Minecraft remains as popular now as the game was during its peak nearly a decade ago and shows no signs of slowing down.

Minecraft is available now for PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and mobile devices.
