You may not recognize the name Richard Tyler Blevins, but you're definitely familiar with the streamer Ninja. They're one and the same. Today, the popular streamer announced that he would be streaming exclusively on Mixer going forward. This should attract a lot of his fans to the streaming platform because Ninja is extremely influential. He streams Fortnite mostly.
The terms of the deal are unclear at the moment, but it seems like Microsoft paid Ninja for exclusivity. Given the fact that Mixer is still a relatively new streaming platform, high-profile migrations should help it grow. If you have an account on Mixer, you can subscribe to Ninja for free at the moment.
Ninja is also a former professional Halo player, so the partnership may extend to Halo Infinite. However, only time will tell. In order to grow, Mixer needs a lot more influential streamers. We'll have to wait and see how this affect Mixer's user count.
