Touching base to share this week’s episode of Cold As Balls from Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud featuring e-sports legend Ninja. In the episode, Ninja dishes on the real reason why he left Twitch for Microsoft in favor of growing his brand, how to successfully make money in the gaming world and that he’s received technicals at tournaments for sh*t talking his opponents on the metaphorical field.
Episode Highlights include:
- Ninja dishing that there are currently 2 billion gamers in the world and 4 billion people in the world with access to the internet. He says the only way to make streaming bigger is through more awareness.
- Ninja revealing that the reason he moved from Twitch to Microsoft Mixer wasn’t a money play, but rather because it was a better opportunity to grow the brand.
- Ninja shares that there are two ways to make money in the gaming world — through content creation and through competing against everyone else in the world for large prize pools.
