In the dynamic realm of online streaming, the spotlight has fallen on xQc following comments from Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins regarding xQc’s reported $100 million deal with Kick, a platform vying to challenge Twitch‘s dominance. Ninja characterized the deal as “misleading,” prompting a response from Kick and Twitch star xQc as he addresses the skepticism raised by Ninja.
For those unfamiliar, the Kick streaming platform was unveiled last December by the well-known content creator Trainwreck. Shortly thereafter, the platform unveiled its Creator Program, boasting substantially higher payouts in comparison to industry giant Twitch. Since its establishment, Kick has successfully secured agreements with several prominent content creators. However, Kick reached a significant milestone in June by securing the signature of xQc, one of Twitch’s most influential streamers. As expected, this high-profile signing generated ripples throughout the streaming community, with the magnitude of the financial arrangement sparking widespread surprise and conversation among industry enthusiasts.
xQc Addresses Ninja’s Concerns Regarding His Kick Agreement
Recently, the streaming community witnessed Twitch streamer Ninja raising questions about xQc’s lucrative deal with Kick. Ninja expressed skepticism, suggesting that the deal, much like other high-value contracts, might not involve a straightforward cash payment of a hundred million. He speculated that there could be elements tied to gambling money, stakes, or some form of financial involvement beyond a direct cash transaction. Responding to these concerns, xQc provided a detailed clarification on his agreement with Kick, saying the contract is straightforward and does not have any connections to gambling, stakes, or cryptocurrencies.
The 24-month contract involves monthly compensation, and xQc elaborated on a slowdown in payments due to an initial signing bonus and advance, ensuring a substantial income during the initial stages of the deal. Additionally, xQc referenced other prominent streamers like Pokimane, Hasan, and Ninja, expressing his frustration over the unfounded doubts being cast. Emphasizing that the speculation is more cringe-worthy than personally hurtful, xQc extended an offer to share the entire contract under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to dispel any lingering uncertainties.
It’s noteworthy to mention that this isn’t the first instance of skepticism surrounding xQc’s multi-million dollar deal with Kick. In July, Logan Paul, the YouTuber-turned-boxer, also expressed doubts about the substantial amount involved in xQc’s agreement with Kick. Furthermore, the deal captured the attention of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, who found the details surprising. Shaquille O’Neal playfully cautioned xQc, suggesting that he might soon face competition, given the appeal of earning by simply turning on a camera and having people watch.
