The lifestyle has changed and so the way to earn money. Though the old ways to earn a living still remain a choice, it's 2020 and now it's time one can earn from blogging, Youtube channel, Instagram and yes even through online gaming.
Playing games has always been an addiction, but playing video games was never appreciated. At the end of 19s everyone played games like ALADIN, mario, prince, car racing, till last year the most popular game was PUBG. But as mentioned earlier, gaming has never gained the required prizing. A person who can make an app was always admired, but a person who coded games never got any fame. But time has come where passion can really change one's lives.
