PewDiePie - a Pioneer and Multiple Record Holder

No one has EVER reached such heights before! This will be not just another benchmark checked but a whole new record in Youtube's all-time history.

Being created in April 2010, when Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, was a 21 years old student, the channel earned around 60,000 subscribers by December 2011.

Throughout 2012 and 2013, PewDiePie's account started growing rapidly, and it was one of the leaders when it comes to subscribers gaining speed.

On July 11th, 2012, the channel reached the major benchmark of 1 million subscribers and it took him another few months only to hit the number of 2 million subscribers in September the same year. In October PewDiePie was ranked as the No.1 YouTube channel.

After reaching 5 million subscribers in February 2013, in April PewDiePie was covered by The New York Times after surpassing another milestone - 6 million subscribers.

In July and August 2013, he overtook two leading channels - Jenna Marbles and Smosh, becoming the most popular broadcaster by hitting the massive 10 million subscribers.

It was November 1st, 2013, when PewDiePie became the first user to reach 15 million subscribers.

For a year only, in 2013, the channel went from 3.5 million to nearly 19 million subscribers, and by the end of 2013, it was growing with a new subscriber every 1.037 seconds. PewDiePie was recognized by Billboard to be the channel that gained more subscribers than any other channel on Youtube for that.

In 2014, PewDiePie's account sky-rocketed and added nearly 14 million new subscribers to his fanbase, surpassing 4.1 billion video views - both higher than any other channel on Youtube at that time.

PewDiePie's YouTube channel became the first to eclipse the number of 10 billion video views on September 6th the same year, reaching new heights in Youtube history.

The Cherry on the Pie ...

It was late November 2016 when PewDiePie jokingly stated that he is going to delete his YouTube channel at 50 million subscribers.

That outburst a frenzy among the masses of fans and on December 8th PewDiePie's channel hit the unbelievable 50 million subscribers, breaking another record and becoming the first YouTube channel to do so.

After reaching the milestone PewDiePie uploaded a celebratory video with fireworks and posted in his Twitter account the following message: "will delete tomorrow 5 pm gmt".

After all, he did not delete his channel but instead shut down another joke channel he created earlier on, called "Jacksepticeye2", stating "You know when you make a joke and it just blows up way bigger than you'd imagined?" ...

Now, at the age of 28, PewDiePie is just a step away of reaching the staggering number of 60 million subscribers and it is expected to happen within the next 24 hours, guys!
