A week ago, the world’s top gaming streamer, Ninja, announced he was leaving Twitch to stream exclusively on Mixer, and he has already accumulated over a million subscribers on the his platform.
Many suggest that those subscriber numbers are highly inflated as Microsoft’s streaming platform Mixer is allowing free subscriptions through September, and that those followers will likely fall out when required to pay for the subscription.
Today we hit 1,000,000 active subscribers on mixer ^-^ thank you for all the incredible support. I haven't felt this good in a long time. pic.twitter.com/kdLgBJk0Ud

However, putting up a million new likes in only a week shows what a loyal fanbase Ninja (real name Tyler Blevins) has. He has likely given Mixer significant exposure to future customers and possibly made other top streamers investigate the potential for making the shift from Youtube and Twitch.
Ninja had been pulling in approximately $500,000 per month as a result of his involvement in the gaming industry. He had over 14.7 million followers on Twitch and primarily plays Fortnite.
