Twitch career

Sapnap streams Minecraft on his main twitch. He streams games besides Minecraft on his alternate Twitch account (currently Sapnapalt). He started streaming on twitch in February 2020 and continues his Twitch Career.

Musical career

On April 3, 2021, Sapnap announced that he was forming a band called Power. The band (Sapnap, DanTDM, Krtzyy, TimeDeo, Wisp) announced a international gaming/music tour that is to start on April 12, 2021 and end sometime in late 2023.

Dream team

He is part of the collaborative group "Dream Team" which consists of himself, Dream, and GeorgeNotFound (and BadBoyHalo honorarily).


Dream was the one who came up with his name; it is "pandas" but backward, and a "p" instead of "d". Dream originally inspired Sapnap to create a YouTube channel. Dream and Sapnap met in MCPVP when Dream was 13 and Sapnap was 11. (~2012)

He and Dream almost met three times due to living in the same cities. During their first encounter, they couldn't meet because Dream was scared of Sapnap's mother.

In January 2021, Sapnap tweeted a picture of him holding what looked to be Dream's cat Patches, which left fans speculating a potential meetup between the two. They later confirmed their meetup on a stream. They have since been living together since January 2021.


Sapnap often calls GeorgeNotFound "Georgie". They often fight about who is the tallest between them; Sapnap has stated that he must be taller than George in fan art of themselves. Sapnap, George and Dream have plans to all live together as soon as George is allowed to travel to the US (he currently is unable to because of COVID restrictions) but they have teased that a Dream Team Christmas may happen.


Sapnap met Skeppy on July 14, 2020 in Houston, Texas. Skeppy later posted a vlog documenting the events.

Karl Jacobs

Sapnap has met up with fellow content creator Karl Jacobs on multiple occasions. Their first meetup was March 28th 2021, the second was August 6th 2021, and they have since accidentally met up around the 2nd week of October 2021, after Karl's flight had to prematurely land and he was unable to get another flight for two days.
