PewDiePie vs T-Series: YouTuber may lose the race to 100 million subscribers

Published

The YouTube battle may be quiet now, but the race continues between PewDiePie and T-Series. The two YouTube channels are coming close to achieving a major milestone of 100 million subscribers. But the Indian music label will most likely beat the Swedish YouTuber to achieve this feat.

T-Series started and is continuing to defeat PewDiePie for the top YouTube spot. The Indian YouTube channel is now leading with over 95 million subscribers. PewDiePie is behind T-Series with a difference of 800,000 subscribers. According to the pace at how both YouTube channels are gaining subscribers, they would soon reach the 100 million mark in less than a month.

According to social media analytics page, Social Blade, T-Series is predicted to reach 100 million subscribers as early as May 21. PewDiePie, on the other hand, will reach this spot a little late on June 2. The Swedish YouTuber has long held the YouTube crown but soon saw threat from the rising popularity of T-Series.

The start of this YouTube battle began last year in October with both channels hovering around 67 million subscribers. It has been a crazy ride ever since. PewDiePie and T-Series’ YouTube battle has so far been a mix of memes, bizarre campaigning, and even legal.

Following a Delhi High Court order, two of PewDiePie’s diss videos were removed from YouTube. T-Series argued that the diss tracks namely ‘Congratulations’ and ‘Bitch Lasagna’ contained defamatory remarks against Indians. These videos are no longer available in India.

PhonePe will now charge upto Rs 2 per transaction for mobile recharges

Walmart-owned digital payments app PhonePe will now charge processing fees for every transaction. This means that you will no longer be able to transfer money or recharge your phone without shelling out a little extra money for every transaction. The company has said that it would charge fees in the range of Re 1 to Rs 2 per transaction for mobile recharges for value above Rs 50. PhonePe is the first payments’ app to have started charging for UPI-based transactions

“On recharges, we are running a very small-scale experiment where a few users are paying for mobile recharges. Recharges below Rs 50 are not charged, recharges between Rs 50 and Rs 100 are charged Re 1 and above Rs 100 are charged Rs 2. Essentially, as a part of the experiment, a majority of users are either not paying anything or paying Re 1,” a PhonePe spokesperson told PTI.

PhonePe s charging processing fees for UPI-based transactions for value above Rs 50. If you don’t spend upto Rs 50, you will not be charged any amount by the digital app. Like other payments apps, PhonePe will also begin charging processing fees for payments made through credit cards. PhonePe is one of the most popular, widely-used payments app in India along with Paytm and Google Pay. It has recorded over 165-crore UPI transactions on its platform in September, clocking over 40 per cent share among the app segment, the PTI report stated.

“We are not the only player or payment platform charging a fee. Charging a small fee on bill payments is now a standard industry practice and is done by other biller websites and payment platforms also. We charge a processing fee (called a convenience fee on other platforms) on payments with credit cards only,” the spokesperson added.

For the unversed, just like Paytm and Google Pay, PhonePe can be used to transfer money with BHIM UPI, manage multiple bank accounts, check account balance, save beneficiaries across multiple bank accounts like SBI, HDFC, ICICI & 140+ banks. Recharge prepaid mobile numbers like Jio, Vodafone, Idea, Airtel etc, recharge DTH like Tata Sky, Airtel Direct, Sun Direct, Videocon etc, pay various bills and more.
