Twitch Streamer Ninja Earned $10 Million Last Year

We live in a brave new world in which people are getting rich for doing things that we would never have thought could earn you money. An example of this is Tyler Blevins who goes by Ninja on the internet. The young gaming sensation reportedly earned ten million dollars last year from his various endeavors, a number that is very high indeed and the important thing to remember is that he is not the only person on the internet that is earning this much money. There are plenty of other people in this category as well.

Ninja earned this money from a wide variety of sources. He has twenty million subscribers on YouTube, so it is fair to say that his videos on that platform are pretty popular. Each view gets him some money through Google’s AdSense program. Ninja is most famous for his Twitch account, however, and he was over twelve million there. Over forty thousand of these are paid subscribers who give him money each month in exchange for having exclusive access to his various streams. On top of all of that, Ninja gets tips from people that are watching his streams for free, and there is also the fact that he is getting sponsorships from names as big as UberEats, something that also probably nets him a pretty penny at the end of the day.

Many people assume that people like Ninja earn money for free, but this is not the case. Ninja approaches his career like a business. He is streaming around twelve hours every single day with very few days off, and is in many ways a workaholic. The great thing about Ninja is that he takes his fame seriously, and strives to create a relatively wholesome culture in the world of gaming.
