Here's a great way to make money during quarantine...while you're sleeping! A new viral trend is called the "sleep stream" and one of the best sleep streamers out there is a 26 year old guy who goes by the name 'Asian Andy.' Asian Andy has even enabled text-to-speech recognition so viewers can issue commands while he sleeps. The 26-year-old from Los Angeles made $16,000 in just one night on his Twitch Livestream!
Andy's Livestream messages were read aloud. Viewers watching Andy sleep used their messages to get Alexa to play loud music, imitate a dog barking, or make his alarm clock go off. One recurring theme in an August Livestream was viewers telling Andy someone was at the window.
Even Andy was shocked at his viewers' generosity saying at the end. he was very thankful and even admitted he used to drive Uber for $16 an hour. He has more than 40,000 subscribers on Twitter and Instagram and one million subscribers on YouTube. What a way to make a living.
Sleep streaming is getting more popular, as another streamer specializes in sleep streaming from different hotels around the world.
I think I prefer to be awake when I work...
