Tubbo has worked on a couple of different projects throughout his career.
One of his mentionable projects is an anarchy server called POGGOP, and it was what it sounds like. Complete anarchy. People were going crazy, and people were having a good time, but the project was soon abandoned because of development issues and lag problems.
His second project worth mentioning is a mini-games server called Qube Mini-games Network, launched in June 2020. The server was running for two months and provided some content for Tubbo's stream. It was shut down because of code licensing problems.
The third server is called Tubbo Network, also called TubNet, which was launched in 2019 and re-launched later as a crossplay mini-games for both Bedrock and Java editions of Minecraft.
Minecraft Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for content creators organized by Noxcrew. Ten teams of four compete in various mini-games against each other. These mini-games are decided by contestants themselves, and points gained for each mini-game rise exponentially. This forces teams to start with the mini-games they are not good at and save their most skilled mini-games for the latest rounds. Two final teams with the most points face each other in the game of "Dodgebolt" to decide the winner. Tobby didn't participate in the first 8 Minecraft championships.

- 7th overall and 24th individually
For most of the game, Pokimane didn't have an MCC official texture pack on, which is crucial for seeing necessary blocks in the MC Championship. This tournament is connected with a lot of toxicity when Tommy's stream started shipping him with Poki and also harassed her. Against all odds, this didn't cause any drama. Pokimane stated that she might take another peek into pro-Minecraft in the future.

Tubbo's earnings from other avenues
Before Tubbo started his streaming career, he used to be a national-level trampolinist in England. Tubbo is no longer a trampolinist, but you can find some vlogs from trampoline parks on the internet.
Tubbo has his own merchandise with different clothing and also ukuleles which he himself plays. This merchandise is often limited edition and is released in small batches. Even though this merch costs a considerable amount of money, it gets sold out very quickly.
Tobby has earned $1,250 from Dream's gameshow.
Once TubNet launches, it's gonna become another avenue of income. This project is in its final stage, and Tobby is currently hiring testers.
Tubbo's earnings as a Youtuber
Tubbo has almost 3 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. This channel was created in 2018 and is already about to cross the 3 million line. Instead of posting multiple videos per day, Tubbo focuses on quality and posts only 3-5 videos per month. Even though he posts only a couple videos per month, this still nets him somewhere between $9,000 and $11,000, resulting in about $120,000 per year. He is also making additional money from different sponsorship deals.
Tubbo's earnings as a Twitch Streamer
Tubbo has an average of 19k subscribers per month on his main channel and around 1.5k subscribers on Tubbolive, his second channel. For simplicity, we are just gonna assume every one of them is a tier 1 subscriber, which is the cheapest subscription you can get. Twitch yoinks half of the subscription money, and the rest goes to Tubbo.
His main channel makes around $50,000, and Tubbolive makes approximately $5,000 per month.
This means both of his channels give him a nice income of $610,000 per year. This math didn't include any higher tier subscriptions, PayPal or bit donations and sponsored streams. In reality, Tubbo is highly likely to earn much more than $610,000 from Twitch per year.
Tubbo's sponsorship deals and net worth
Tubbo is known for not promoting products, and he is not doing sponsored streams very often. One of the few streams he did was an Adobe-sponsored art stream where Tubbo used Adobe Photoshop and was just goofing around, creating different pictures and "art pieces".
He also did "The Tomorrow War" stream sponsored by Amazon Prime.
The exact amount of money earned from these streams is unknown. Still, if we consider Tubbo's average number of viewers per stream and his internet presence, this sum should be astronomical.
His net worth is unknown. When summing up all the different incomes, a rough guess is $1,500,000, but all the additional revenues could swing it anywhere between $2,000,000 to $3,000,000.
