High-profile 100 Thieves content creator Valkyrae recently revealed that she has signed a deal to stream exclusively on YouTube.

Rachell "Valkyrae" Hofstetter is a member of the 100 Thieves content creation team and has become a top talent on Twitch when it comes to the streaming world. However, the famous influencer will now be calling a different platform home for her content, as the 100 Thieves star announced on Monday, January 13th, that she had signed an exclusive streaming deal with YouTube. 

Rod "Slasher" Breslau reported the news of Valkyrae's move to YouTube from Twitch before it was officially confirmed by a video Valkyrae posted to her Twitter account on January 13th. 

Valkyrae is the second 100 Thieves content creator to make the switch from Twitch to YouTube following Jack "CouRage" Dunlop's move. Now, the video platform has two prolific content creators from arguably the most popular esports organization in the world, calling YouTube home. 

The streaming wars between the likes of Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, and Facebook Gaming have ramped up considerably in recent months with multiple high-profile streamers from Twitch either moving on to different platforms or deciding to stay with the Amazon-owned entity. 

There is no doubt that the addition of Valkyrae to the ranks of YouTube will help the video platform's streaming section gain even more traction heading into the early stages of 2020.
