Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins might be a pro at Fortnite, but he just couldn’t click with Minecraft during the first week of Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem’s Minecraft Monday.

KEEMSTAR’s Minecraft Monday kicked off today, with internet personalities such as Jimmy ‘Mr Beast‘ Donaldson, and ‘DolanDark’ taking part. The event pits all sorts of YouTubers, streamers, and influencers together as they try and earn the most points.

While the event was a succes with a whopping 400,000 viewers at its peak, Ninja just could not click with the game, and ended up leaving after playing just four games.

Twitch: NinjaNinja quit the game after just four rounds.

What made him quit?

While teamed up with MrBeast, the pair discovered a chest with a block on it, making it extremely difficult to open. The scuffle to open it caused his teammate to die, but not before Ninja got extremely frustrated, stating, “it won’t let me open it!” MrBeast tried to explain that it was because of the block, but ended up getting stabbed to death.

“WHY IS THERE A CHEST WITH A BLOCK ON THE TOP?” MrBeast exclaimed bewilderedly. Ninja replied frustratingly with “What the F is going on, man?! Come on, dude!”

“That’s so dum- I’m not watching this game,” the Fortnite pro uttered in defeat before exiting out of the game. “I’m out, that’s it, that’s my last one, dude. I can’t. I can’t do it anymore.”

He then thanks his viewers for watching and supporting Minecraft Monday, and explained that he’s “tapping out.”

It’s easy to see why Ninja got frustrated, seeing as the pair died quickly in every game they played, and just couldn’t seem to mesh well with it – anyone would get annoyed at that.

Luckily, KEEMSTAR wasn’t bothered by his exit, tweeting, “Thank you Ninja & MrBeastYT! Ninja had to Dip he’s running no sleep but still showed up to support [hashtag] MinecraftMonday.”

The Fortnite pro replied to the DramaAlert host, admitting that he needed to have more practice with Minecraft, but enjoyed it all the same.

MrBeast then responded to that with a simple “Same.”

You can’t be mad at the dude for trying, and honestly, the best part of the whole thing was watching him and MrBeast having fun together.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
