Ninja raises eyebrows probing the legitimacy of xQc $100 Million Kick Contract – In AFK w/ Ninja Podcast, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins delves into the world of streaming deals, casting doubt on the specifics of Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s colossal $100 million contract with Kick. Ninja, renowned for his own groundbreaking deals in the streaming realm, labeled xQc’s deal as “misleading” and raised questions about its true nature.
Ninja, reflecting on his time at Mixer and the reasons behind its downfall, highlighted the legitimacy of his exclusive streaming deal with the now-defunct platform. He then turned his attention to xQc’s recent deal with Kick, asserting, “Even the xQc deal, like the hundred million deal, dude, it wasn’t like 100 million cash.” Ninja speculated that the money might be tied to gambling, involving stakes or percentages, rather than a straightforward cash payment.

This speculation prompted xQc to address the curiosity surrounding his Kick deal, clarifying that the $100 million wasn’t a lump sum of cash. Confirming separate agreements with both Kick and Stake, he emphasized their independence, stating, “They’re not lumped in. They’re not one.”

He further revealed that if gambling was integrated into the Kick contract, the deal would have exceeded the initially announced $100 million, potentially reaching a staggering $275 million when combined with the Stake deal.
