Remaining anonymous on the internet today is nothing new. More and more we’ve seen content creators begin their careers either with no face cam or sometimes wearing a mask. Streamers like Disguised Toast and Corpse Husband have been able to build some of the biggest channels on streaming platforms, without showing their face. 

Unequivocally, the Minecraft YouTuber ‘Dream’ has seen the most success as a content creator while also staying anonymous. He has built a YouTube channel of over 30 million subscribers and has eclipsed the 6 million follower mark on Twitch. It’s safe to say that his fanbase was eager to see his face reveal, with the video nearing 20 million views just a mere 14 hours after being uploaded. Here is why Dream's face reveal means so much to his community.

Who Is Dream?

Dream has garnered a following across social media while playing and creating content around the popular game Minecraft. The first series of Dream's to really go viral was his continued attempt to break the Minecraft speedrun record. After distancing himself as one of the best speedrunners the game had to offer, he put a twist on the genre. 

Dream's most popular series and what gave him his initial kick-start to where he is today is his speedrunners vs hunters series. This would consist of Dream and a couple of his friends loading into a new Minecraft world where Dream was tasked with defeating the Ender Dragon as fast as he could all while his friends attempted to slow him down. The most popular video in this series has been viewed over 100 million times. 

Face Reveal

It is extremely common for streamers and content creators to use a face-cam. It allows them to show off their reactions and even be a more personable figure to their audience. Dream decided to forego using a face-cam or showing his face, as he wanted to keep some sort of private life. For years people on the internet have tried to leak his face or even created hoax face reveals, and finally Dream took it into his own hands. 


Dream stated the reason for wanting to show off his face was because his long-time friend and collaborator, GeorgeNotFound, was making the move from the U.K. to the U.S. He assured his followers that he won’t be using a facecam for his Minecraft content, but wanted to branch out into IRL videos, making vlogs with his friends. This should be a huge relief for Dream, with the weight of having to keep his face anonymous off his shoulders, we’re excited to see what the king of Minecraft is up to next.
