Owner of OnlyFans Made $500,000,000 in Less Than Two Years on the Website

Published

on

Since he began working for OnlyFans in 2020, Leonid Radvinsky has earned more than $500 million (£448.4 million), and data indicates that its content providers made billions of dollars in 2018.

That’s a lot of money

Tim Stokely, a British businessman, launched OnlyFans in 2016, and it’s safe to say that it’s been a huge success.

More than two million content creators have used the site since it launched, bringing the total number of users to a staggering 220 million.

OnlyFans experienced a spike in users when the coronavirus epidemic hit and lockdowns were implemented, unlike many other businesses.

According to the BBC, in 2021, the number of subscribers increased by 128 percent, while the number of creators increased by 34 percent.

The website’s popularity doesn’t appear to be declining, and it generates revenue by deducting a 20 percent commission from all payments made to the authors of its content.

Businessman Radvinsky, an American of Ukrainian descent, acquired the company in 2020 and took over as CEO in December after Stokely resigned.

In a report obtained by the BBC, Radvinsky was given $284 million ($246 million) in dividends in 2021 and an additional $233 million ($201 million) since November.

In addition, Radvinsky is not the only one profiting from the popularity of the subscription-only website. According to the same report, OnlyFans content producers earned slightly under $4 billion (£3.47 billion) in 2021.

“We are empowering creators to monetize their material and have genuine control over it,” said chief executive Amrapali Gan to the BBC.

She added: “We will continue to invest in the creator economy by enhancing safety, developing original OFTV [the firm’s free streaming platform] content, and continuing to grow our community of creators and fans.”

And the website’s popularity, which is fueled by a 20 percent commission on all payments made to the site’s content creators, doesn’t appear to be declining.

After purchasing the business in 2020 and taking over as CEO in December of last year when Stokely resigned, Ukrainian-American businessman Radvinsky.

According to a study obtained by the BBC, Radvinsky received $284m (£246m) in dividends in 2021 and an additional $233m (£201m) since November.

Radvinsky isn’t the only one profiting from the popularity of the subscription-only platform, though. In 2021, OnlyFans content providers earned just under $4 billion (£3.47 billion), according to the same report.

The BBC quoted Amrapali Gan, the company’s chief executive, as saying: “We are empowering creators to monetize their content and have true control over it.”

The business expressed its gratitude to everyone for speaking out in a tweet.

“We have deferred the planned October 1 policy change as we have obtained the assurances required to support our diverse creator community.

“OnlyFans stands for inclusion, and we’ll keep giving all creators a place to call home.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Releases Its First Trailer

Published

on

The last time we saw Star-Lord and his rag tag bunch of extraterrestrial friends in a stand-alone movie was five years ago. The public has now been given a trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

A Bit of a Surprise

Although they’ve been in multiple Avengers movies, Chris Pratt’s character hasn’t had a solo adventure in a very long time. However, they’re back and they look better than ever. The third installment of the fantastic Marvel franchise has not yet given a concrete on what’s to come, but hopefully the trailer would give us an idea on what’s going on.

Keeping the Standard

We appear to be in for a picture that jumps between planets and is full of action, drama, and astonishing emotion. In one scene, Rocket is seen as a young racoon, and there may also be the beginnings of a possible love affair between Rocket and an otter. As the Guardians move through space, the visuals are stunning, nothing less of what we’ve been expecting from the franchise.

Make sure you check out the trailer right here!

The Internet Goes Wild After Will Smith’s Latest Movie Gets Boycotted by Critics

Published

on

Due to the ongoing repercussions from Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock at the Academy Awards earlier in the year, fans have had a mixed reaction to the historical action movie Emancipation, which was directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars Smith.

The Plot of the Movie

Gordon, also known as “Whipped Peter,” was a Black American slave who managed to escape the Louisiana plantation where he was kept captive in the book Emancipation. In order to avoid hunters and bloodhounds, he traveled more than 60 kilometers in ten days before arriving at a post of Union soldiers in the early 1863.

The Consequences

Even though Smith has said he understands if people don’t want to watch Emancipation, a sizable portion of folks who would not view this movie because of its relationship with Smith are puzzling fans of the actor.

Emancipation debuts in American theaters on December 2 and becomes available on Apple TV on December 9. Hopefully people would still support the film, and see the film for what it can truly be.

Fans Already have the Ideal Substitute for Liam Hemsworth in The Witcher

Published

By

The mess that was The Witcher on Netflix just won’t go away. If you didn’t hear, Henry Cavill has left the series, and I truly hope I’m not the one to tell you.

The Witcher Debate Just Won’t Go Away

In the next third season, Cavill will play Geralt of Rivea, but this will be his last appearance. The position will then be filled by Liam Hemsworth in season four.

Cavill didn’t really give a reason for leaving, but it’s quite obvious now. Cavill, who has fought for the veracity of Andrzej Sapkowski’s original novels, is quite disappointed that The Witcher is departing from them.

Some producers reportedly even made fun of the novels. In light of this, viewers started a petition requesting that Netflix fire the show’s writers and rehire Cavill. Liam Hemsworth is not at fault for any of this mess, but the actor hasn’t exactly received a warm welcome to the franchise.

We Got This Covered reports that 3D artist Wonki Cho has won the hearts of fans with a collection of concept work that casts actor Mads Mikkelsen in the part.

As Geralt, I must confess that Mikkelsen does look pretty cool, and let’s face it—everything that man touches turns to gold. Similar views were expressed by fans on Twitter. No offense to Liam Hemsworth for playing The Witcher, but Mads Mikkelsen is a perfectly capable actor over here, according to Grunchpop.

Fans aren’t the only ones affected by Cavill’s departure; Revnardent added, “Petition for Mads Mikkelsen to be the next Witcher.” We share Doug Cockle’s sentiments, who play Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and expressed his sadness at Cavill’s departure.
