  1. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. With the new ability to unlock emotes with bits badges, it would be nice for streamers to give aways bits codes to their community. Streamers currently can gift subs, this would be another way that they could give back to their community.

  8. I noted on twitter the UI for the auto bits has no restriction on time (ie refill X amount of times per month). This could be exploited on a compromised account that set up the auto buying of bits, as the bits would be spent and then twitch would automatically buy more.

    Also people do get heated in a "bit war" and I could see this leading to issues where it it draws multiple times to keep the donation war going.

    Simple changes would include: 1) a way to restrict how often bits can auto refill and 2) A confirmation…

  10. A Cheermote that is only unlocked on a streamer's birthday that gives extra bits on top of a cheer (10-25% more). It would incentivize people to purchase more bits for a streamer's birthday and give the streamer a nice birthday gift!

  11. 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…

  12. I think it provides an option for streamers to award loyal viewers or viewers who won a bet, etc. The bits can then be cashed in by the viewer to PayPal, etc.

  13. We already have sub gifting, why not add bit gifting too? It could allow for so many possibilities like one streamer had the idea of making a game in Unreal Engine if we had the ability to gift bits. It would still benefit twitch and streamers because people would still be buying bits possibly even a bit more if they can gift the bits to other people to be able to support streamers.

  16. I just purchased 1500 bits ($15 to streamer) for $19.95 -- a $4.95 markup. This made me think about the amount of bit donations vs. PayPal donations I've seen over the years, and the fees associated with PayPal are much more attractive.

    Bits however are very interactive and entertaining. The novelty of getting a bit badge and having your cheer posted at the top of the chat is likely a reason why people choose to pay the premium. That being said, for every person that buys bits, the other person donates on PayPal because its cheaper. If Twitch wants to…

  17. Allow viewers to use BITS (cheer) currency to buy micro ad-free viewing blocks for channels.

    0.10 Bits for 1 Hour
    0.20 Bits for 2 Hours
    0.25 Bits for 5 Hours

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
