Turns out the massive success of Fortnite is not only responsible for growing capitalization of Epic Games and Tim Sweeney's ranking among world's 500 richest people, but also helps those who contribute to this success in a different field. Tyler Blevins - know as Ninja - is one of the most popular Fortnite streamers in the world, and his popularity has brought him almost $10 million throughout 2018.

That's right, Ninja earned a huge amount of cash by playing games - that's a fact you could use when arguing with your mom while playing Fortnite. 2018 was actually the best year in Tyler's life, as CNN reports. Ninja has told that 70% of his profits come from YouTube and Twitch-streaming. And while he acknowledges the contribution these services make into his success, Ninja sill complains that Twitch is not capable of doing a great enough job to encourage players to spend more while watching streams.

The remaining 30% of income Ninja gets from his sponsors - huge corporations like Samsung, and Tyler says he's doing his best to keep sponsors satisfied with him so that he receives a steady flow of rewards. This dedication leads to working a 12-hour shift almost every day playing Fortnite, which resulted in half of the previous year spent on videogames.

You might think that such amount of work is too much for a 27-year old lad, but all he has to do is to keep this pace for no more than a couple of years - and he'll secure a stable financial status for the rest of his life.
