Kai Cenat is halfway through his 30-day subathon, and today he surpassed Ludwig's all-time high of 283,066 active subscribers.
Cenat climbed to the fifth highest most active subscriber of all time, according to Twitch Tracker. As Cenat closes in on 140,000 subscribers, he is still around half of Ludwig's record. However, if he can maintain his subathon for the remainder of the month, he should be on track to compete for the championship.
Cenat will likely take over the third place in the coming days, surpassing Casimito's personal high of 159,487 subscribers in November last year. The other two artists between Cenat and Ludwig's record are Ironmouse (171,818 from March 2022) and Ninja (269,154 from April 2018).
Cenat's stream hasn't been without problems early on. After being banned from Twitch just days before the month-long marathon, Kai has already had a few moments that might have jeopardized the stream before it even started.
During a subathon, Kai Cenat defeats a swatting attempt with precision.
Kai had a Discord video call with a woman that he discovered on Twitch for assisting in a ban evasion attempt on the first full day of his subathon. He quickly left the conversation in order to avoid being disciplined by the platform.
But a few days later, he appeared to have completely circumvented ban evasion laws by talking to banned streamer iShowSpeed on the phone, making jokes about his being a friend instead.
