Ninja reveals that he earns almost $500,000 United States dollars a month through live streaming his advanced skills at conquering any obstacle in Fortnite. Also, his popularity is evident from the fact that he - with help from some celebrities including Drake - recently managed to break Twitch's record for most concurrent viewers of a solo streamer with about 650,000 viewers witnessing the stream.

Though Epic borrowed the concept of parachuting onto an island and competing against a large number of other players from PUBG, the developer has a few key advantages over its PC-focused rival.

Twitch Prime allowed him to collect the revenues generated by playing Fortnite. Fortnite is now playable on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and iOS with an Android version of the game in the works, friendly fire is a massive component for most shooters.

This is likely not intentional, as these premium skins can be bought, and this kind of purchasable advantage would label Fortnite as pay-to-win, something that I'm sure Epic Games is trying to avoid. Amazon Prime users have also been able to access the premium version of Twitch, as part of its membership. Much of that comes from Twitch, though Blevins also has more than five million subscribers on YouTube. Forbes.com says it's visually appealing, the building aspect is unique to the genre and really works, and no other game offers a similar "battle royale" scenario, in which many combatants duel until only one remains.

"I'm very goofy. I do impressions, and just insane shenanigans". All the kids out there, you can't just drop everything and focus on playing video games for a living. Of course Blevins adds a bit of flare to it, but not $500,000 worth of flare. Epic Games doesn't just want to talk about the new features, they want to show them off too! But it's not hard to understand why people would want to follow in Blevins' footsteps. His advice to students was never to just give up on education and leave it in the middle of their days as students. No one, not even Blevins, knows how long this cash cow might last.
