  1. Enable bits to be used to purchase subscriptions for channels.

    Give discount on channel subscription cost, based on bits purchased or bits in stock.

    Would save twitch money on payment/card processing fees per subscription as money already with twitch.

    Would encourage more people to sub to channels to get good discount worth the % fees paid to get bits.

    Subscribing to XX channels based on % would give cover any % payed to get the bits, this would encourage use of bits, and give discounts to those that supported more channels with subscriptions, and more usage of bits.

    Would save…

  2. This would be similar to a Cash Back option through Amazon, where people can receive bits from purchases directly through Amazon. Would be a great way to get some extra bits to give to the streamers they love all while supporting Amazon.

  3. Free bits randomly depending on the daily stream time in the last 30 days.

    -Range 1: Minimum 2 hours of stream per day, you could get up to 10 to 100 random bits for viewers.

    -Range 2: Minimum 4 hours of stream per day, you could get up to 50 to 500 random bits for viewers.

    -Range 3: Minimum 6 hours of stream per day, you could get up to 100 to 1000 random bits for viewers.

    (Bit amounts may vary, I just put those amounts as an example)

    Only one person who is writing in the chat will receive…

  4. Currently, you must use paypal balance, even though it is through Amazon, to purchase bits, and are unallowed to put the funds already in your amazon account towards these purchases. I believe that it would be beneficial to allow using the amazon balance toward bit purchases so I can put my pre-existing balance toward twitch streamers.

  7. I would like to propose something to twitch, create little games on twitch or like a once a day lottery ticket u can do to earn bits, because there's some ppl who can't afford it but still want to support their favorite streamer, other than chatting and redeeming channel points.

  8. This option would allow streamers to bank uncashed out bits and use them to donate to other channels, if they want. For example, one of my viewers sends me 500 bits. Those bits are banked and I can use them when making donations in the future.

  9. hm.. i don't know if this is the right place to post it, but considering it involves bits and channel points, i will post it here.

    basically, i want to redeem all of my various accumulated channel points to bits, and support my favorite streamers with them. I'm not against buying bits, but i'm not really going to buy any. and since i'm not american, the 'watch ads for bits' option is.. kinda defunct and useless to me

    of course, there needs to be some balance to not just give out all the bits to the people with a lot…

  11. Have Broadcaster create a list of selective Anonymous names to use in lieu of "Anonymous Cheerer" for controllable options for either specific people, or channel branding.

  12. Twitch removed the option to watch ads for bits and I want it back.

    Being able to send free earned bits had been an amazing opportunity for those who can not afford it but still want to support their favorite channels.

    Taking away that feature for Multiplayer Ads is a huge downgrade, it does not allow each individual to have a freedom of choice with the earned bits as it used to be.

    Please bring back Ads for Bits.

  13. As a Twitch streamer, I believe these can be improved to make bits a more fun and rewarding options for viewers:

    1. Up to 5 Animated emotes as an option for bit emote rewards that streamers can put in any slot.
    2. Allow streamers to give their bot access to using bit emotes. Currently, partnered streamers can give permanent tier 3 subs to bots, but this doesn't give the bot access to bit emotes.
    3. Currently, bit badges go up to 5 million. It should go higher.
    4. Expand the current channel points system to include redemptions with bits

    I think these improvements would…

  15. My idea to stop fraudulent bits and their impact on streamers is twofold: 1) Create a system or process that listens and supports streamers impacted by the complete removal of cheering for channels triggered by fraudulent bit donations. 2) Emphasize assessing security behind the bit donating process/software rather than punishing streamers who have received these bits from users taking advantage of this obviously weak security flaw.

    Fraudulent bits are obviously a large problem for Twitch as a business; however, more importantly, these faux donations are a larger problem for streamers: the financial backbone and foundation of Twitch.

    Currently, Twitch has…

  16. Viewers should decide where do bits go.

    I mean, a viewer should be able to choose whether they want their bit to go to the streamer or to the mods. This would give any sort of revenue to mods, who work freely.

  17. Once subscribed to a channel, a user will get access to the normal unlocked things but also access to a new tab next to "Gift Subs" called "Gift Bits." Gifting bits directly through a channel the viewer is subbed to will provide a discount. For example we'll say $1 = 100 bits. One option would be $1 = 110 bits if subbed...or, you could implement it as .90C = 100 bits.

    You could scale bigger discounts based on longevity (consecutive months subbed) or through level of subscription (Tier 1, T2, T3.)

    I do not have financial information on twitch but…

  18. Bit Magic is like the Chat Effects or Stream Effects (a.k.a. Mixer's Ember Effects).

    I found a way to do the chat with animations the similar way. It just needs implementation from the Developers.

  19. Something new that "could" be added to bits is when any viewer redeems 1 or more loot with Twitch Prime on any affiliate or partner channel, that channel owner could automatically get 0.15% off bits per viewer who have redeemed 1 or more loot when on that channel. It would take 100 viewers redeeming loot to reach 15% off bits for that specific channel.

    The cap of the percentage off bits for the channel owner could be 5%-15%. Once a channel reaches the cap the channel owner could have one-to-two weeks to buy the bits with a percentage off, from…
