It seems that the new generation is rising up for a new movement that will revolutionize the times to come. Until now we were used to hearing the expression “30” are the new “20”, denoting that the age to establish ourselves socially had increased. However, new technologies, together with a generation of “little mutants” are going to change this constant.

Ryan Kaji, 9, has been named the highest paid Youtuber of 2020 by Forbes magazine for the third year in a row.

According to reports, the young content creator earned $29.5 million, $3 million more than last year, and had a total of 12.2 billion visits with a total of 41.7 million users. Kaji is known for his do-it-yourself exploits, telling family stories, and getting on the toy unpacking platform. However, the highest revenue comes from licensing his more than 5,000 Ryan’s World products. Items range from bedroom decor to action figures, masks and walkie talkies. You can find them at Target, Amazon and Walmart.
