Danielle Mackey, better known as TradeChat, is a gamer, game reviewer, and reality television personality. She is known for her YouTube channel, where she discusses all things World of Warcraft. Furthermore, the experienced gamer has held starring roles in both The Tester and King of the Nerds – two reality TV series focused on nerd and gamer culture.
Before making one to two videos per week about her video game obsession, TradeChat was in the top ten percent of her class. She dual majored in biology and chemistry, but chose not to pursue her degree, citing stress. Her channel, on the other hand, is quite successful. Formed in 2009, she uploads up to two videos per week and currently has over 1,300 on the channel. Her subscriber count has grown exponentially.
