B0aty (birth name – Adam Lyne) is a RuneScape streamer and YouTuber, who has more than 525,000 followers on Twitch and over 336,000 subscribers on YouTube.
Adam was born on September 16, 1994, in England.
Lyne decided to drop out of university to pursue his streaming career.
He regularly streams on Twitch while he plays RuneScape, an MMORPG that was released on January 4, 2001. The third iteration of RuneScape 3 was released in July 2013.
Adam is known for his overall knowledge of the game.
On Twitch, he has over 75 million views and more than 525,000 followers.
Lyne typically streams daily from around 15:00 UTC for 6 to 8 hours.
In 2020, Adam turned down a $20k sponsored stream because of gambling implications. ”My rule of streaming is that I will never ever take a sponsor that is a house odds table game, no matter what the price,” Lyne said.
In July 2014, Adam vowed to stream for 240 hours (8 hours a day minimum average) and donate all of his proceedings to the MacMillan Cancer Support foundation, one of the largest British charities that campaign for better cancer care. The charity was founded in 1911.
During the streaming period, Lyne raised 50,000 pounds. He said:
”Over the month of July 2014, I set myself the challenge to go live every single day without fail, to raise money for MacMillan.”
Adam went on to say:
”This challenge was completed on 1st August and over £50,000 was raised even though I expected £10,000.”
The foundation stated it could be the start of a whole new way of generating income. A spokesman for the foundation declared:
“£50,000 – that is amazing. We are going to send someone to meet Adam in person to thank him for raising so much for us. It really is incredible.”
During an interview, Lyne said:
“It’s been amazing and such a big surprise. I wanted to help Macmillan because the nurses cared for my grandmother.”
Adam later added:
”I’d like to thank everyone who has donated for helping raise such a fantastic total.”
In 2015, Adam renewed this challenge and raised more than 40,000 pounds. He said:
”I decided to set a harder challenge in 2015; to live stream an accumulated 240 hours over the month of July.”
”This was completed at 22:00 on 30th July.”
In 2016, he has repeated the effort. He stated:
”With the toughest challenge yet completed we are aiming to raise £75,000.00 over the course of 2 Back-to-back 12-hour live streams hosted on 31st August & 1st September.”
In 2018, Adam was invited to Buckingham Palace at a reception for Macmillan Cancer Support.
