On 5th December 2022, Twitch streamer Tyler "Trainwreck" Faraz Niknam officially announced that he'd be leaving Twitch to join another newly-introduced rival platform called Kick.com (Kick) as a non-owner advisor and non-exclusive broadcaster. 

Trainwreck has long been one of the most prominent and widely-known content creators on Twitch, and although his support of a better streaming platform has been shared multiple times, the streamer's vision has officially taken its course through Kick. Trainwreck ambitiously plans to revolutionize streaming in a way that wholly benefits streamers and creates an environment where genuine interaction between viewers and creators can flourish.

In a rather argumentative Twitlonger, Trainwreck stated that streamers broadcasting on Kick would receive unparalleled benefits compared to streaming on Twitch or YouTube. The streamer stated that Kick would offer streamers a 95/5 revenue cut between all transactions, which is massive when put against Twitch's 50/50 share. This cut means streamers won't need to sacrifice so much time and effort to earn so little.

In addition to this, Trainwreck promised that all tips, also known as kicks, would proceed to the streamer. Streamers can withdraw that money on the same day too. This feature meant that streamers receiving donations would immediately be able to withdraw them through Kick, which is tremendously helpful for struggling creators.

Subsequently, Trainwreck stated that there'd also be a new exclusive creator program that would pay Kick's partners for their streaming success. This feature functions sort of similarly to Twitch's partner program but differs in a way where streamers won't rely on subscriber count every month alone. Streamers will acquire steady income based on hours watched and total views during their Livestreams, with an option to be paid out on the same day.

Not only that, though. Kick's Terms of Service (TOS) are designed to be fair to streamers. The platform's TOS has clear rules on "what's okay and not okay." Kick won't ban creators ambiguously. Although these rules are still being constantly updated, Trainwreck stated Kick would look at a few things: ethical gambling, fill balance disclosure, wager locked giveaways, code locked giveaways and promotion of deceptive gambling nature.

For now, Trainwreck notes that Kick will aim to be a better platform for streamers and a more fair and honest one. That said, there are still many things to update and improve, and the streamer continuously notes that Kick is slowly changing.
