Fortnite streamer Ninja makes $500,000 a month
“I think that I offer a combination of high-tier game play that they really can’t get with a lot of other content creators. It’s very difficult to be one of the very best at a video game,” Blevins said
Fortnite streamer Ninja makes $500,000 a month: Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins explains how he makes more than $500,000 a month that’s right, per month—as a streamer playing video game ‘Fortnite’. He says a lot of his income is derived from Amazon Prime subscribers, who are allowed to donate to his Twitch channel, his 5 million subscribers on YouTube and a massive number of followers on Instagram and Twitter. He recently teamed up with Drake to destroy Twitch’s concurrent viewer record, confirmed in an interview with CNBC.
Ninja said “I think that I offer a combination of high-tier game play that they really can’t get with a lot of other content creators. It’s very difficult to be one of the very best at a video game,” Blevins said. “I’m very goofy; if you ever watched any of my streams or YouTube videos, I do impressions and stuff like that all the time and just crazy shenanigans. I think the combination of that [game skill and entertainment] is really fun to watch.”
Despite his runaway success, Blevins also offered some moderating words for would-be streamers hoping to follow in his footsteps: Stay in school.
“I maintained my job that I was working, at Noodles and Company, and I stayed in college while I was doing all these things. I continued to do well in school and focused on the future of my life, as well as working on streaming and competing in Halo,” he explained.
“All the kids out there, you can’t just drop everything and focus on playing video games for a living. It’s also becoming a very competitive career choice right now, and you want to make sure you’re securing your future and putting in the extra time to try to make this happen as well.”
With a whopping half a million dollars coming in every month, Ninja has plenty of money to play with. So what’s he doing with it? Investing and saving, as well as making charitable donations,
