One of the most popular British YouTube personalities is Daniel Middleton, better known as DanTDM. He is also a professional gamer and the owner of the popular YouTube channel “The Diamond Minecart,” which is very popular. The Diamond Minecart focuses mostly on the game Minecraft. In August 2016, Daniel’s YouTube channel had 12 million subscribers, which is a lot of people. In the UK, it is now one of the best YouTube channels on the site. Somewhere between $2.13 million and $2.15 million was Middleton’s income in 2014. Within the next year, he had one of the most popular channels.
Rise to fame
He was born on November 8, 1991, in Aldershot, which is in the United Kingdom. Middleton is the older of two children. Because his father was in the army, they moved a lot. A traumatic event in his childhood was when his parents split up. He went to Northampton University and started a YouTube channel about Pokémon while he was at school. He called himself “PokemanDanLv45.” It was in 2012 that Middleton made the channel, The Diamond Minecart. It is more professional and aimed at kids. After a few years, the names of the YouTube channels changed to DanTDM and TheDiamondMinecart on YouTube. Dan was born into a middle-class family in a British military town. He now owns one of the most popular YouTube channels. For “most goals scored in a game of Rocket League for a team of two” and “most goals scored in a game of Rocket League (team three),” Dan won the Guinness World Record. This is what Dan did when he was younger. As of now, he has made more than 2000 videos. He is known for the “Let’s Play” series.
In what way is Daniel Middleton so unique?
When Daniel talks to people, he says that he likes to keep his daily schedule pretty simple. A little after 9 am, he gets up and works on the video for an hour. This is what happens: he checks Minecraft updates, makes videos in the afternoon, and posts them on YouTube at 8:30pm. After that, he checks for comments. Dan Middleton has more followers on YouTube than the BBC, even though his videos are very simple and short. In just a few years, Daniel Middleton went from being a normal college graduate to being one of the most popular names in the YouTube world, with more than 12 million subscribers. This makes him a person to keep an eye on in the future!
Behind the curtain.
To move a lot, Daniel’s father worked in the army. Ten schools had already signed him up when he was ten. Later, when his parents split up, he started going to a new school, where he made new friends and met Jemma. In 2013, they got married. It was on March 17. Jemma also likes Minecraft (JemPlaysMC), and they play a lot of games together. They have also made videos together. Both of them love dogs. They have two pugs named Ellie and Darcie, and they call them by these names:
A year after he started his YouTube channel, Daniel Middleton did it again. A million people signed up for service in December 2013. That didn’t happen, though. The popularity of DanTDM’s channel grew so quickly that it reached his next 11 million subscribers in two years. Dan may sound like he’s being very humble right now when he talks about how simple his daily schedule is, but just like any great thing, he worked very hard to get there.
When Daniel was young, he moved a lot, and his parents split up. He also broke his hand recently. However, Dan didn’t let that stop him from becoming one of the most talked-about people in the world of YouTube. Because of his well-balanced diet, he can stay healthy and keep his body in good shape, he says. He doesn’t drink or smoke because he thinks it makes him sick and isn’t good for his young subscribers.
