      They also get money from their earnings as a design agency, plus the merch, plus patreon, plus from FUNK, a german brodcasting agency (idk if it is an agency, germans no hate on me pls...) and wix (idk what that is either), plus the grants from many companies. So, maybe if you remove all of that, they probs wont be able to sustain themselves with only this channels money and will probs only make this as their hobby, and no more.
