In a popular video that has received millions of views, a hugely well-known Minecraft YouTuber first revealed his face.
It might come as a surprise that so many people are curious about Dream’s identity because of his notoriety for playing the online Lego-like game.
One of the most well-known content producers on the internet, Dream has a fan base of 5.6 million Twitter followers, 3.1 million Instagram followers, and 30.4 million YouTube subscribers.
Here’s what you need to know.
What is Minecraft?
Since its debut in 2011, when it was one of the most popular video games of all time, Minecraft has maintained a devoted fan base and currently boasts an estimated 100 million monthly active users.
Players can find and gather materials, tools, and items in a blocky, 3D world with nearly infinite terrain. They can now construct buildings, earthworks, and simple machines thanks to this.
Players can engage in cooperative or competitive combat with other players while battling hostile mobs, depending on the game mode they have selected.
It has evolved into the ideal game for the internet era, with expert creators using YouTube to showcase their fantastic creations and gaining sizable followings as a result.
Who is Dream?
As an anonymous Minecraft YouTuber who only spoke to the camera while donning a grey, happy face mask, Dream rose to fame starting in 2019.
Prior to the reveal on Sunday, he claimed that using a mask prevented him from “expressing [himself] fully.”
1.2 million viewers watched the event’s YouTube debut to see the mysterious gamer’s face for the first time.
In the six-minute clip, Dream also identified himself as Clay, a 23-year-old.
A fellow Minecraft YouTuber named GeorgeNotFound was flying to the United States to meet him for the first time, and I’m sure many of you are wondering why now,” he said to his fans.
In order to “get out in the world, meet creators, and be a person,” Dream stated that he wanted to “start doing things” in public.
As he meets other individuals from the Minecraft community, he added, his followers can now anticipate more IRL (in real life) content.
