How does Ninja spend his time?

When a fan asked, “Outside of gaming, what are some things that bring you joy?” Ninja explains that family time is something that is very dear to him. This time is usually spent on activities like visiting restaurants, riding rollercoasters, and watching movies with his wife.

Ninja got his first taste of the Esports world as a professional Halo player. He went on to become an important character in Cloud 9’s team, following which he took a liking to streaming. Initially, Tyler streamed games like H1Z1 and PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds. However, it wasn’t until Fortnite came around that Ninja became a worldwide phenomenon.

At the time, he went by the name Ninjashyper, which was apt for the character he played. Soon, Tyler was the face of the game and is a major reason for its success. Ninja has gone on to become the richest streamer in the world since then amassing a net worth of $25 million.

Despite the immense amount of wealth he has, Tyler still faces the dilemma of money. According to him, “if you have money, 90% of the time or more, you’ve sacrificed a lot… and then, you have that money and guess what, now you don’t know who to trust.” Blevins even became the first streamer to make 100 million from gaming alone.
