With a record year for Youtube Gaming content in the books all around, let’s dive into the 5 biggest Minecraft Youtubers today!
DanTDM – 24.3 Million Subscribers
DanTDM is a variety gaming channel, but it contains tons of regular Minecraft content – including some of the biggest Minecraft videos on the Youtube platform.
Since beginning in 2012, DanTDM’s Youtube channel has accrued an incredible 17 billion views.

PopularMMOs is a Minecraft-focused gaming channel that has showcased some of the best mods the game has to offer over the years, starting in 2012.
PopularMMOs has accrued over 14.1 billion Youtube views in this time.

The PopularMMOs Youtube channel is back on the rise, however, as more videos are now being posted (with some being reaction-based rather than Minecraft gaming content).
The biggest videos on PopularMMOs channel reach 56 million views, and center around unique Minecraft mods and showing them off.
Dream – 14.5 Million Subscribers
Dream is without a doubt the most controversial Youtuber to make the list as one of the top 5 biggest Minecraft Youtubers, with his channel starting in 2014.
In this time, Dream has stacked up 1.2 billion Youtube views.
This is because after Dream’s metoric rise in 2020, which saw his channel grow from 1 million subscribers to a whopping 14.5 million, Dream has come under fire for his speedrunning.
Dream captured speedrunning World Record presence this year making the leaderboards for his times. These runs have since come under fire, however, and research has concluded that they are nearly statistically impossible.
This research includes a 28 page research paper, and Youtube video going over the results. In the end, it concludes a 1 in 7 trillion likelihood of authenticity in Dream’s speedrunning results.
Outside of Dream’s Minecraft speedrun controversy, his incredible channel growth gives some promising signs that he could be the next face of Minecraft Youtube content.
