Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is no stranger to donating excess amounts of money to Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins in order to see his on-stream reactions.

First held in 2016, the annual ‘Guardian Con’ live stream brings a collection of personalities and streamers together with the goal of raising as much money as possible over the course of a week for St. Jude.

The inaugural live stream in 2016 raised $564,000, while the following year managed to bring in a staggering $1.35 million for the children’s research hospital, and bring more attention to the cause.

For the 2018 installment, Guardian Con set a goal of $2.4 million, due to that being the average cost to run St. Jude’s Hospital on a daily basis, which ended up being surpassed for a total of $2.7 million raised alongside the assistance of major streamers.

One such streamer was Ninja, who managed to bring in a massive amount of money throughout the duration of his streaming segment and had different incentives for viewers to donate, including dropping his current weapon for $250, all materials for $500, and no healing with only gray weapons for $1000.

With this in mind, popular YouTuber MrBeast tried his best to get Ninja to lose games by periodically donating a total of $50,000 in extremely inconvenient instances, leading to a collection of hilarious moments.

Twitch star Sykkuno officially reveals he’s moving to Las Vegas after dropping hints

Twitch superstar ‘Sykkuno’ has seen an explosive rise to internet stardom in the past few months, and after dropping a few hints that he’s making major life changes, has officially revealed he’s moving house.

Sykkuno’s is a unique and surprising case in online fame; while he’s been making content since 2011, the influencer saw a huge rise in YouTube subscribers during the last few months of 2020, skyrocketing him from 400k subscribers to over 2 million.

This impressive growth has been applauded by fans and fellow streamers alike — and it makes sense, as the creator managed to score a jaw-dropping 1.6 subscribers in just four months’ time.

It seems that his newfound success is also kicking off a major life change for the streamer, as hinted at during a broadcast in early January.

Data from VideoAmigo shows that Sykkuno’s subscriber count on YouTube started rapidly growing from August.

The star teased that he would be moving out of California, where he previously lived with major streaming group OfflineTV before exiting the collective to pursue his own personal projects in November 2020 — right when his subscriber count began to climb.

“I will say this, though, guys — I’m actually moving soon,” he said during a January 8 broadcast. “I don’t know if I should say where. But you guys will know, and it’ll happen within a month, probably. I will say this, guys… there’s a decent chance I won’t be in California anymore.”

It seems that Sykkuno’s hint was a bit more on-the-nose than fans expected, although he isn’t moving too far away; on January 15, the streamer revealed that he is moving to Las Vegas, home to several other major content creators.

However, it looks like Sykkuno’s streams will be on the back burner until he’s all settled in — but it doesn’t seem that his fanbase is too worried about that particular drawback.

“Moving to Las Vegas!” he tweeted. “I’ll be back on streams soon!”

Sykkuno’s post has been met with hilarious reactions from a slew of other top streamers, with the likes of Mizkif replying with a video of himself merely saying, “Bye.”

This move to Vegas marks another in a major series of life changes for one of the net’s biggest stars as he continues on his high rise to fame.
