At the time of this writing, Brycent has managed to amass 27.7k followers on Twitch and 20.6k subscribers on YouTube. His live streams provide a more leisurely batch of Axie Infinity play sessions, while his YouTube channel presents a more informative format for first-timers looking to delve into the blockchain game for themselves. During a sitdown interview with ONE37pm’s own Aaron “Don” Dukes and yours truly, Brycent spoke about one of his previous endeavors and how he ended up trying something different after having a go at that for a while. “I had stopped doing my other startup - me and my co-founders kinda decided to part ways on it. They’re still working on it, but I wanted to take a break,” he said. “And traditionally, gaming is always my escape. So like yo, I been stressing myself out for two/three years, working obscene hours on my startup and at my nine to five. And I was just like, let’s just take some time to go back and play video games, bro. Go back to regular life.”
After listening to the Market Meditations podcast by Koroush AK, Brycent overheard him interviewing someone about Axie Infinity. After picking up the game for the first time, he didn’t take to it right away. After hearing the game spring up afterward, however, Brycent gave the game another chance by checking to see if anyone was streaming it on Twitch. To his surprise, there wasn’t much of a major presence for the game on the world’s most popular streaming service. It eventually dawned on him to take over that space and morph into the most knowledgeable Axie Infinity player that Twitch’s massive viewership community can always come to. “No one is playing this game - let me start playing it and become the person that creates this social community around it,” Brycent noted. His first few streams brought in a max of two to three people. But now he’s used to bringing in thousands of curious and appreciative viewers (one of his more recent streams bagged 4800+ viewers at one time).
Massively influential streamers such as Ninja and Nadeshot inspired Brycent to pursue his role as a gaming influencer that can popularize a game such as Axie Infinity through Twitch and increase his presence tenfold. The process has been successful thus far, to say the least. Brycent made a point of stating that Twitter followers that once lamented his affinity for Axie Infinity have now turned into interested onlookers that want to get in on the whole process. While Brycent doesn’t have the time to educate everyone who reaches out to him about the game, his YouTube channel has become one of the best learning tools for those looking to make some headway during their Axie Infinity experience. Brycent’s videos cover a wide range of topics, such as everything you must do before you actually play Axie Infinity, how to build a great team in the game in five minutes, and the best Axies to breed in order to nab $1000 profit per week.
