2019 was a wild year for the gaming and esports industry. Alongside a lot of AAA video games being released and multiple huge esports tournaments, the content creating scene has seen a huge year in 2019 too. One of the biggest surprises in the content creating scene last year was the movement of Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins from Twitch to Mixer.

Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins was the number one streamer on the Amazon-owned streaming platform, no doubt about that. But in August 2019 this man held a press conference to announce that he would be an exclusive part of the Microsoft-owned streaming platform. At that point, Mixer was so small and unpopular that almost nobody knew the existence of Mixer. But things have dramatically changed since then. People know Mixer more and more, and the moment of Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has ignited a series of huge movements of other famous streamers.

When Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has just announced his decision, his fans were really angry with Twitch. We all know that Microsoft has a huge wallet, and it has certainly paid Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins an incredible amount of money for his agreement. But then, at that point, Twitch did not show much effort to keep Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins. That is why the fans were angry with this streaming platform. However, a new report has suggested that things were not like that. This report also confirms the amount of money Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins received from Mixer for the exclusive streaming deal.

This new report says that at first, Twitch offered Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins a three-year deal, with the payment of $15 millions dollars per year. But that deal did not mean anything because Facebook Gaming and Mixer both gave our streamer a much better deal. Meanwhile, $15 millions dollars per year was the highest number Twitch willingly paid the streamer because it believed that Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins could not bring much media value for the platform. Twitch has already been the biggest name in the streaming platform scene at the moment, so it does not need our streamer much now.

Mixer, on the other hand, has gained huge progress since Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins’ arrival. It manages to get Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek on broad too, and the popularity of this streaming platform skyrockets. Although Mixer is still extremely small, in comparison with other streaming platforms, it has been going up steadily. This proves that the investments of Mixer are paying off.
