Those who suffer from insomnia or anxiety will be well aware of the phenomenon that is ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), which has become incredibly popular on YouTube with many of the top ASMRtists having millions of subscribers.
What may have started as a fun project for many has now turned into a fully-fledged job, with many now solely focusing on their YouTube accounts, with major sponsorships and Patreon's all-seeing the income rise.
Whilst ASMR is still very much in the growing phases, the community is already a huge one, and within this article, we will rank the top 10 richest ASMRtists on YouTube.
