As you already know, twitch is one of the biggest platforms used by gamers from all around the world to live stream their video games to entertain other gamers who view their live streams. Twitch was founded back in the year 2011.
In the beginning, there was no way for streamers to support themselves financially on twitch. However, the twitch corporation noticed how much their small streamers were struggling to put up content on their twitch channel due to not being able to support themselves financially.
This led twitch to introduce their new feature twitch bits which enables twitch streamers to earn money by collecting donations from their viewers from all across the world.
Twitch users can buy ‘bits’ which is known as the currency on twitch.
They can buy 100 bits on twitch for $1.40 and spend them in the way of their favourite streamers on Twitch.
You can easily buy bits on Twitch by clicking on ‘Get bits’ in the upper right corner of the screen or by clicking on the bits icon in the bottom of the chat of any streamer’s channel. You can donate these bits by going to any channel on Twitch that has activated the cheering settings. Click on their chat room and type ‘cheer100’ which will enable you to donate 100 bits to the streamer. You can enter any number of bits that you want to donate to the live streamer on Twitch.
Another way to set up donations on twitch is through donorbox.
Donorbox is a third way platform which collects donations for streamers on twitch. Streamers can get this feature and add a donate button next to their twitch channel. By clicking on the donate button, the twitch viewers will be able to submit their donations to their favourite streamers on Twitch. You can submit your donations through PayPal or Amazon account or bank transfer. All the live streamers on Twitch can get the donation feature by going to their channel’s settings and enabling the donation option.
