Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade has passed away at age 23 after a battle with cancer. The Minecraft community is quite massive, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given the game has sold over 238 million copies and is available on a wide array of platforms. The community is what has kept the game alive and so successful for so long, with key figures on YouTube helping champion the game in a major way. One such figure was YouTuber Technoblade who amassed over 10 million subscribers over the course of roughly a decade. The YouTuber’s oldest video dates back to 2013 and his channel highlights his
Minecraft prowess, with many videos featuring him speedrunning various aspects of the game. While he was most famous for Minecraft, he also played other games on his channel from time to time.
Technoblade’s death was announced by close friend and Minecraft YouTuber Dream, who shared a heartfelt tribute video on his own channel. In it, Dream spoke about how he first met Technoblade and their friendship over the years. He also encouraged people to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Technoblade’s memory. The Minecraft community has already begun to mourn the loss of one of its biggest figures, with tributes pouring in from all corners of the internet. Technoblade may be gone, but he’ll certainly never be forgotten.
