2018 has been a really wild year for the 27 year old. He became the first professional video game player to be featured on the cover of ESPN the Magazine, helped drop the ball in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and became the first streamer on Twitch to reach 10 million followers.
Those followers watch Ninja’s daily “Fortnite” streams religiously; Ninja plays for about 12 hours a day from his basement studio, accepting donations, interacting with his audience, and welcoming new subscribers throughout the session. The long hours help the world’s most famous professional gamer earn more than $500,000 a month( speak of hard work pays).
