I realize that cheering may be quicker than donating for effects in the game and I may have an easier time of noticing it, as such I am updating the option to use bits to affect game play with the equivalent donation option.
You can find the whole list of Donation Rewards here, but I’ve put them into each Tier of Reward for simplicity.
$1 Tier Rewards = 100 Bits
$2 Tier Rewards = 200 Bits
$5 Tier Rewards = 500 Bits
$10 Tier Rewards = 1,000 Bits
$20 Tier Rewards = 2,000 Bits
$40 Tier Rewards = 4,000 Bits
$50 Tier Rewards = 5,000 Bits
For each Bit that you Cheer, the Streamer sees around 1 cent worth of that Revenue. Therefore if you Cheer 100 Bits, I receive $1 USD. All of my Donation Rewards are in CAN, my local currency, which is $0.65 CAD per $1 USD.
Due to the way that Twitch takes a cut of the Cheer money, and on top of that I get taxed extra for being outside of the US by Twitch (30%), I don’t see all of that Revenue, as opposed to Donations where I see 100% immediately, but since my currency value is so much lower it works out to be nearly the same so I have kept it as such for simplicity sake.
Some advantages to using Bits rather than Donations:
- Along with receiving your regular Donation Reward, you earn different Badges to stand out in chat that display your support for the show
- The Badges remain forever so everyone knows that you’re a big supporter for the stream
- It’s a different and simpler option for Donating to the show
