YouTubers get paid per views. Similar to how truck drivers get paid, cents per mile. Its a communist type of pay orgininating from Carl Marx (father of communism). The type of pay is called "piece of work", neither salary nor hourly.
How much do they make? I really don't know since there is no actual data and fact. But my take is that they make a lot of money, the famous YouTubers just for say.
YouTubers are not regulated yet and the only thing they got to worry about is YouTube policies. I think they are on a merit based system and a rake based system. Sponsorships and Private deals for example. If you compare Athene and Shanedawson, Athene is more of a proactive leader, raising funds and helping people. Although Shane rakes up more views, their pay is about the same.
Athene who was famous for world of warcraft is now a community and movement leader in Africa. Yup :).1
