Ninja Back at it Again: Hits 100,000 Concurrent Viewers on First YouTube Stream
Arguably the world's most successful streamer, Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has hit more than 100,000 concurrent viewers on his first Youtube stream.
After his short-lived but lucrative exclusive deal with Microsoft's streaming platform Mixer (north of $20 million, YIKES) was cancelled due to Microsoft shutting down Mixer, Ninja's next move in the streaming world was unclear. He reportedly turned down a similarly lucrative exclusive deal with Facebook (which was working with Microsoft to absorb their existing streamer contracts), and had his first YouTube stream not too long ago.
With a peak of over 100,000 concurrent viewers, it was clear that his fans were clamouring for his attention on the platform (they haven't seen him in nearly 3 weeks!) Even with such impressive numbers, he did not reveal his plans for the future in terms of his chosen streaming platform or other deals, but opted to just have fun on the stream instead.
Even so, Rod 'Slasher' Breslau (a popular esports source) reveals that Ninja is currently negotiating a new exclusivity deal with one of the big streaming platforms. Be it Twitch, Facebook Gaming, or YouTube, chances are we'll be seeing the blue-head wonder again very soon!
