Claim To Fame

He gains roughly 11-18,000 Subscribers daily. Only 23 of his videos are English-subtitled, and it is unknown if any more will be translated.
On June 21, HolaSoyGerman. overtook Smosh as the third most subscribed YouTube channel.
It has been stated multiple times by the Spanish YouTube community that HolaSoyGerman uses bots, making it the reason how he got so many subscribers.
In one of his most early videos (The Internet and Social Networks), at the timeframe 0:40, they screencaptured his computer browser, and in the favorites tab, a youtuber named "LordDestructor", who left YouTube shortly after being bombarded by Germán's fanbase, noticed that there was a link to a bot website. LordDestructor immediately created a video showing the evidence, and at this point, HolaSoyGerman, who had only been on YouTube for six months and already had over a million subscribers, saw the hate comments on his videos, deleted the video, and hid the statistics of every video from then on. Unfortunately, it was too late. Lots of Spanish YouTubers were already making videos discussing the matter and saying that he was cheating and stealing YouTube's money plus the viewers' money as well. Shortly after, HolaSoyGerman made a video saying that he was just "trying" the website out to see if it really worked and that he didn't care about the people that hated him, stating that there was a community of Spanish people all around the world that were doing something truly amazing with his channel. Later, LordDestructor made a video explaining that German claimed and deleted his video about the Bots to protect his reputation.
