What is YouTube Partner Program?
YouTube has a monetization program named as “YouTube Partner Program” (YPP) first launched in 2017. This particular program helps content creators to create videos and upload them onto youtube. Based on the number of views, and several other criteria YouTube pays content creators through the YPP.
Eligibility criteria to qualify for monetization
In order to be eligible to qualify for monetization on your YouTube channel, you should have 10K views in total
of your videos. YouTube implemented a basic requirement to have 10K lifetime views before becoming eligible to
monetize the content.
This policy by YouTube is said to be applied on 6th April 2017.

What made YouTube do this?

“We want creators of all sizes to find opportunity on YouTube, and we believe this new application process will help ensure creator revenue continues to grow and end up in the right hands,” writes Bardin.
This is a nice move from Google as this will help quality content makers to have fewer competitors. By this policy, YouTube keeps the offensive content creators and at bay and paves way for true valuable content writers to make a better living for themselves.
