Popular Twitch streamer and content creator Ninja Blevins believes that the newly created streaming platform Kick will be even more successful than Twitch.
Richard Tyler Blevins, better known in the online community as Ninja, is a famous American Twitch streamer, YouTuber, Professional gamer, and internet personality. Initially, Ninja started streaming Halo 3, then later gained massive popularity for playing the popular Battle Royale game Fortnite in 2017. Currently, Ninja is one of the biggest streamers in the world and has more than 17.4 million followers on Twitch, making him the most followed. Ninja currently earns more than $15 million a year, according to estimates.
Back in August 2019, Ninja signed an exclusive deal with now closed Microsoft-owned streaming website, Mixer. At that time, it was the biggest streamer deal in the world, and sources suggested that Ninja was signed for more than 10 Million to stream on Mixer. But after Mixer’s shutdown, Ninja came back to stream on Twitch and reportedly got $20-30 million from the Mixer deal.
Now with the release of Kick.com, Twitc’s newest competitor, Ninja believes that Kick will ultimately become more successful than Twitch.

Ninja Believes Kick will be more successful than Twitch
During his April 6th Stream, Ninja was asked, “Why do you think they can succeed when Mixer did not?”
Ninja’s answer was, “The main issue with Mixer compared to Kick, and it’s abundantly clear that it took too long to get things done. There was like 80 different billion people that had to reach out to somebody else, who had to reach out to somebody else, who had to reach out to Microsoft, who had to reach out to somebody up top at Microsoft even more to get confirmation to change anything.
When I went over to the platform, my moderators had several calls with Mixer employees about improvements that everyone in my stream and myself included, thought they could be doing to make improvements to the site. Several calls hours wasted, and one of them simply being there needed to be an easier way”
Since Kick does not have that problem, Ninja believes it will eventually be more successful than Twitch.
