5 YouTube Channels That Made Millions On Crypto Projects

Influencer marketing is one of today’s most effective tools for attracting new customers. The product or service is not advertised by the company itself, but by another person or group of people trusted by thousands. Trust in the product or service grows, and sales increase. Influencer marketing is a great opportunity for both the brand and the influencer to gain recognition with the target audience.

All of this is true for the crypto world, as well. Many ICO (and other crypto-project) founders search for YouTube bloggers who are experts in this field. Their aim is simple: to ask them to mention a particular blockchain product briefly, or describe it in detail in their new videos.

In this article, we are going to cover five YouTube channels that have managed to earn millions by advertising cryptocurrencies.

Benefits of Advertising on YouTube

YouTube is one of the most famous platforms for sharing videos. Every Internet user has browsed it at least once in their lifetime. Its development team is constantly working on making the content uploaded there more accessible to users. Developers improve search algorithms and site performance, optimizing the platform’s mobile and other versions.

This means that YouTube has every chance of being known among crypto-enthusiastic advertisers as the most preferable web resource for influencer marketing. (In comparison with Instagram, however, YouTube is somewhat less popular.)

In order to understand the marketing potential of YouTube, let’s take a look at the benefits of promoting your project with the help of influencers:

  • Videos are perceived extremely positively by the human brain, and the information is memorized a lot better than in the case of images or text.
  • YouTube brings together the most diverse audience from all over the world, of all ages and both sexes. This is an excellent opportunity to expand your target audience.
  • YouTube is owned by Google, so it is directly connected with its other popular services. This, in turn, optimizes user searches for videos via Google.
  • It is extremely easy to find the most influential vloggers from your niche — and the ratings, comments and views show which vloggers users truly trust.
  • On YouTube, influencers can share direct links to your project. This increases your platform’s ranking in SERP.

Thanks to their YouTube channels, they have become respected experts of the cryptocurrency world, found an audience that trusts their opinions, and earned a reputation as the personalities that most crypto projects want to partner with.


$300,000. This is how much DataDash earned promoting Substratum, a cryptocurrency that had just appeared. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

The channel’s owner, Nicholas Merten, stated that the payment for him to advertise it was a mere side effect of his sincere excitement about this project. He said he was going to talk about it in his video anyway, because he genuinely liked it, and the payment was just a pleasant bonus. Well, we believe you, Nicholas — just like millions of viewers who watched that video. Bravo!

As the channel is regularly updated with videos dedicated to the latest news and trends in the cryptocurrency world, its owner, Michael, earns a considerable sum on views. (We won’t mention how much he can get by posting sponsored content.)

The Bottom Line

As we can see, the power of the resonance these influencers can create makes them worthy candidates for mutually beneficial cooperation.

In return, you need to make this cooperation as transparent as possible, and ensure that both parties live up to their end of the bargain. It may be trickier than it sounds. To make the process smooth and stress-free, more and more platforms have been appearing on the market.
