Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins shook up the streaming world when he switched from Twitch to Mixer, and now fans might have an idea of how much money he is making as a result of the move.

When Ninja made his leap to Mixer, he might not have realized it at the time, but that was just the beginning of a streaming war.

Since his high-profile switch, we’ve seen Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek move to Mixer and 100 Thieves creators Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop and Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter jump to YouTube Gaming.

Ninja started the trend of streamers switching platforms and securing new deals.

There are several other names that have made big moves, and there will continue to be more in the future, but Ninja is the one who kicked it all off.

Many suspect that he was paid millions to leave his 14 million followers behind on Twitch, but nothing official has ever been revealed.

Shroud was the next major domino to fall in the streaming war.

According to a report from CNN on January 26, Ninja is making between $20 and $30 million to stream on Mixer. This information comes from Justin Warden, CEO of Ader, who says he has direct knowledge of the deal.

A Bloomberg report claimed both Ninja and shroud were making as much as $40 million over three to five-year deals, so these latest numbers are more conservative.

CNN reached out to Ninja’s agency, Loaded, who declined to confirm the actual numbers of the signing.

Do we finally know how much Ninja is being paid by Mixer?

Nevertheless, it seems clear that Ninja had a lot of incentive to move to the smaller streaming platform. His signing, along with shroud’s, was supposed to bring more eyes over to Microsoft’s platform, but it hasn’t had much of an impact as of yet.

What it has done, though, is get more people talking about Mixer as a real competitor, even if the viewership isn’t there quite yet.

The four major players in the streaming war remain Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Facebook Gaming, and Mixer, with all three of them having more viewers than Microsoft’s platform. Facebook Gaming has even gained Disguised Toast and Corinna Kopf, showing they are open to spending some cash to bring over big names.

It’s far too early to determine if the money the Mixer star is reportedly being paid will actually be beneficial, but it’s looking like that’s going to end up being Microsoft’s problem to worry about more than it is Ninja’s.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
