Who is Tyler Blevins?
After completing an article on Snapchat, I will be talking about how much Tyler Blevins make today in the gaming industry. Tyler Blevins, also known by the nickname “Ninja”, has become a worldwide internet sensation. The 27-year-old Entrepreneur has almost completely monopolized the just-as-famous video game ‘Fortnite.’ Blevins has competed in a number of gaming tournaments, regularly live streams on the popular platform known as Twitch, and regularly raises considerably large amounts of money for various charities, foundations, and organizations.
How Did Tyler Blevins Achieve It?
But how does a 27-year-old manage to become as successful as Ninja has in such a short amount of time? A lot of hard work, successful attachment to a highly popular game, and tedious hours spent on producing live streams and YouTube videos. Ninja’s wife, Jessica Blevins, outlined Ninja’s day-to-day schedule in an interview with Business Insider in the late Summer of 2018. According to her, Blevins spends ten hours or more per day on just his Twitch stream. He wakes up at approximately 9:00 in the morning, often having stayed up past midnight the night before in order to complete his streams. Ninja and Jessica spend half an hour talking about work, home, or their relationship after Ninja wakes up, but then he’s off to stream. As stressful as it may sound, who wouldn’t want gaming to be their full-time career? I know I would!
Ninja Accidentally Live Steamed!
Believe it or not, several months ago, Nina accidentally live-stream himself in the middle of the night. As many fans became worried, he made a warming comment to his fans that he’s okay and there’s nothing to worry about. It was an accidental mistake that he forgot to shut it off. Ninja looking at the screen and typing at a keyboard is not as emotional as you think. The comments from this clickbait title made me chuckle:
Some of the comments from this video were hilarious!
- “Ninja looking at a computer and typing. So emotional.”
This one had me dying!
- “Wow very emotional ninja stares at the computer typing and drinking something I’m crying now”
Jessica’s Comment on Ninja’s Career:
“Sometimes when he goes live at night, I don’t have a chance to talk to him until the morning,” Jessica stated in her interview with Business Insider, “So, if I get any new pitches or things I need to run by him, I’ll do that before he starts streaming.”
Ninja and Marshmello?
You’ve probably seen on somewhere on social media but did you know that Marshmellow and Ninja are great friends with each other? If you didn’t know, Marshmellow is a music producer. There are many live-streams of Marshmello and Ninja playing squads or duos with one another in the game. As a Fortnite player myself, I have to admit that Marshmello is pretty damn good.
How Much Does Ninja Make?
So how much do you think that Tyler Blevins actually make? Blevins receives a considerable sum of money, not only from his live-streams but from ad revenue and his YouTube channel as well. According to Blevins’ interview, he earns about 70% of his income mainly from Twitch and YouTube as platforms. What about the pesky 30%?
30% comes from sponsors such as ‘Redbull’ and Samsung. Joey Montano has a brilliant write up from last year calculating Blevins’ estimated monthly income, coming to the conclusion that he can easily rack upwards of $1,500,000 in that timeframe. And that’s not too far off. Blevins claimed to have made around $10,000,000 last year, and we can only assume that those numbers will continue to rise. Blevin has totally dominated the ‘Fortnite’ and ‘Twitch’ world for streamers, enticing curious viewers and hardcore gamers alike around the world.
He certainly is going to remain a titan in the gaming and social media realms for a very long time.
