Pixlriffs is a large Minecraft content creator on YouTube, so why is he cancelling his Patreon page? Why is he closing down Pixlrift, closing down his Minecraft server? And what can we learn (or should we learn) from this?

Pixlriffs is the creator of the Minecraft Survival Guide, he's the voice of the Hermitcraft Recap, a player on the Empires SMP this year with fWhip and other creators, and he recently commentated the Hermitcraft Rivals or Twitch Rivals livestream. He's also had brand deals with NVIDIA and others.

So why would a successful creator like Pixlriffs cancel his Patreon service? With 235 patrons, Patreon is surely a massive boost to his income, but at what cost? Perhaps it's linked to what we discussed last episode, talking about creator burnout and quitting YouTube before you get burned out as a Minecraft creator (or other content creator).

That episode (about burnout) is here:

Let me know your thoughts.
