Trainwreck's net worth is in the millions.

Although the estimates vary, Trainwreck's net worth is likely between $1 million and $4 million. The Twitch streamer makes a decent amount of money.

How much has Trainwreck lost gambling?

Trainwreck is a known gambler and he doesn't remain tight-lipped about his wins or losses. In 2017, he tweeted, "I just lost $3 million gold gambling..." In 2021, he reportedly claimed he lost another $2 million from gambling off-stream, which almost led to him ending his Twitch gambling streams.

Perhaps the most shocking gambling revelation from Trainwreck is that he lost $22.9 million overall. Trainwreck said, "In nine months, I've lost $22.9 million. It was really f--king disgusting and bad. You don't even understand. Like, all my friends knew, but I didn't feel comfortable saying anything because those numbers are unfathomable." Safe to say, Trainwreck is aware that the number is astronomical. Hopefully, he has been able to recoup some of his losses as time has gone on.

Trainwreck invests in crypto and Bitcoin.

Trainwreck has been considered a Bitcoin and crypto enthusiast. On his Twitter, he can be seen tweeting things such as he would prefer to dump his money into Bitcoin and then "gamble it all away." He came across a tweet with a photo asking what three words would you tell your 18-year-old self, to which Trainwreck responded "buy Bitcoin a lot."

Trainwreck also put out a tweet where he said that based on the number of likes his tweet got, he would give the equivalent of those likes away in Bitcoin on his stream for the following three months. That received 17.9k likes. It isn't clear if he ever actually give the Bitcoin away like he said he would. As of this year, it was revealed that Trainwreck has a $1 million a month Bitcoin deal with Stake.

Stake operates as a Bitcoin gambling casino. The $1 million a month deal consists of Trainwreck promoting the gambling site and gambling on the site frequently. Lately, Trainwreck has said he's getting paid a lot more than $1 million a month, though he didn't say how much the increase was.
