@MatejLach yes, #patreon have only about 3k USD / mo of revenue per employee. But they made a bad choice to borrow 60m USD from Joshua Kushner's Thrive Capital in 2017, and ever since they have been forced to spend lots of money to support a series of stories about how they are about to multiply those investors' money tenfold.
They are one of the few California web services corps with a business model, and they threw it away in 2017.
Steady is a German startup with a somewhat similar business which started operating in public in 2017. According to Wikipedia they were 32 people in total last year (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steady_(Website) ), which is closer to what I expected either company could reasonably employ.
