Richard Tyler Blevins, but you may know him by his nickname ‘Ninja’, is one of America’s most successful YouTubers.
He’s also one of the highest-paid Twitch streamers, and now we know exactly how much he makes.
And it’s probably even more than you think.
During a recent live stream on Twitch, Ninja accidentally displayed his Twitch dashboard, which revealed the massive amount of money he made in the last 30 days.
Ninja primarily plays Fortnite and it’s clearly paying off, big time.
His mistake revealed that he earned $142,177 from October 17 to November 15, 2023.
That means he’s earning nearly $5,000 a day, on average.
And this, bear in mind, doesn’t include earnings from YouTube and other streaming services, and it doesn’t include sponsored content and so on.
The 32-year-old quickly realized what he’d done and immediately closed the browser window.
“Ah! You got a little sneak peak of [my] TTV earnings this month, guys,” he said.
Twitch and YouTube streamers regularly share their screen and this means they have to be extra careful when it comes to the tabs they leave open.
In Ninja’s case, this little mistake was harmless.
However, not that long ago, a crypto influencer made a similar mistake and it cost him big time.
Brazilian influencer Ivan Bianco, who goes by Fraternidade Crypto, inadvertently showed his 35,000 YouTube followers the private keys to his crypto wallet.
Bianco only took a few seconds to realize the terrible mistake he’d made but it was already too late.
Somebody had already used the keys to access his MetaMask wallet and drain the account.
All in all, Bianco lost nearly $60,000 worth of crypto but, on the upside, he’s been able to recover some of those funds.
