  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. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. You can earn bits by hosting channels that are live. This will be limited to 5 bits per host, and only receiving this reward once a day.

  8. 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.

  10. 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. With Subs, Subgifts and Donates it is possible to farm points on different platforms (Stream Elements, Streamlabs etc.). The only thing whats missing are the transfer of bits to points. ( example: some one cheers 1,000 bits and earn 1,000 points in the ANKH bot; currently you can farm points with subs and donates). The policies of twitch of 2018 denied this kind of use. Its time to end this and give us the points for bit cheers :)

  14. Bits that are given to you by your community should be able to be used further on to support other people if you desire or alternatively cashed out taking them out of your bits wallet and into your payout wallet which will get payed to you when you meet payout requirements.

  15. 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 have personally experienced issues with being able to watch adds where the adds are not available to be watched sometimes for days or up to over a week at a time. I think that if the person watching the stream wants to earn bits thru adds they should be able to at will.

  17. 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.

  18. Instead of having to wait to get money to be sent to your online banking to use it on Bits and stuff like that, what if there was a way to buy bits with the money that you earn on Twitch. Like if you have earned $2 on ads, then what if you could use that $2 to spend on Bits. I hope this makes sense! If not, please comment your question and I will answer it.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
