What Is Hunter Moore’s Net Worth

Even after earning this much, he is still seen as a criminal just like Viktor Bout.
As we move on in this article, we will be discussing Hunter’s earnings overview, biography, career and lifestyle.
Hunter Moore’s Net Worth Growth
It would be a little difficult to say exactly how much Hunter Moore has made over the years due to his partying and drug lifestyle. However, we can make a few references to his sources of income.
Before he sold his website domain in 2012, the website was getting traffic from nearly five million people monthly. That generated about $20,000 to $30,000 income in advertising revenue for Hunter.
After serving his 2 years prison term from 2015- 2017, he self-published a book titled “Is Anyone Up?: The Story of Revenge Porn”. The book portrayed the dark sides of his former website. We don’t know how much he made from the book but it was a success.
In April 2012, Hunter sold his website domain to Anti-bullying supporter, James McGibney for $12,000. There could have been a lot of reasons behind the sale but reports suggest he was afraid of getting Legal actions taken against him so he decided to let go in time.
How Did Hunter Moore Get Rich?

Reports say he joined the Adult entertainment industry at 18. He worked for a fetish porn company as a hairstylist.
Later on, he started his illegal porn website “Is Anyone Up?” Where he made a lot of money from posting pictures, sex videos and social media information about people without their permission.
He made thousands of dollars from this business for 2 years as he had millions of visitors on the site, monthly. Later he wrote a book on the activities of his website.

Let us assume that Hunter has or has had a career in life. What would that be? I’m sure we wouldn’t consider cyberbullying and sexual harassment as a career.
Well reports say he joined an adult entertainment company when he was just 18. He worked as a hairstylist for the fetish-porn website. Shortly after he started working with them, he won a million dollars from a lawsuit for sexual harassment against a store.
He took the money and embarked on a trip across Europe, Japan, and Australia. Then he came home and started a sex-party business. From there, he bought a website domain, “Is Anyone Up?” with the intent of using it for club reviews.
However, the intent changed when he posted pornographic images of a woman she had been seeing around with friends. Much to his surprise, many people liked it and took a lead from that, calling it a “Porn Revenge Website”
“Is Anyone Up” grew to millions of visitors. It featured pornographic images and videos of people that were taken and posted without their consent. The only regulation was the victim’s age.
Hunter had a team that received the contents from anonymous senders and posted them. The victim’s socials and even their house address were included, making it easy to locate them.
Hunter received a lot of criticism on the internet. The Rolling Stone magazine in one of their publications called him “The Most Hated Man on the Internet“. Well, he didn’t stop.
Over five million people visited Hunter’s website in one month, generating between $20,000 and $30,000 in advertising revenue. However, he sold the domain to James McGibney, a supporter of anti-bullying, for just $12,000 in April 2012, after a year and some months of traumatizing many people.
Eventually, he was arrested and detained in 2014 for hacking people’s emails and stealing their personal information. He was charged to court and sentenced to 2 years in prison and a $20,000 fine plus a $145.70 restitution fee.
Hunter got out in 2017 and self-published a book titled “Is Anyone Up?: A Porn Revenge Story”. The story is about his days as the “king of revenge porn”.
Recently, his story, “The Most Hated Man on the Internet” featured as a Netflix documentary. And premiered in 2022. He was scheduled earlier to be a part of the documentary but he later opted out. The documentary was successful and even clinched the top 3 on the Netflix chart.
Hunter Moore was reportedly dating Kirra Hughes up until his arrest in 2014. Kirra was also a part of Netflix’s documentary on his ex-boyfriend, “The Most Hated Man on the Internet”.
Currently, we believe Hunter is single or doesn’t want to make it public. His social media accounts were disabled after he went to jail.
What is Hunter Moore doing now?
