Donating and cheering for your favorite Twitch streamer is a great way to support and encourage them. It helps them keep doing what they do and entertain their audience. So, take a look at this article to understand how much 10000 bits on Twitch are worth, and what you need to keep in mind before donating to your favorite streamer.
‘Bits’ is an easy and efficient way of supporting your favorite Twitch streamers. You can buy ‘Bits’ using a variety of payment methods like, PayPal and debit/credit cards. The bits donated to a Twitch streamer are portrayed as a cheer! So, moving back to the question…
How much is 10000 bits on Twitch?
To put it simply, 100 bits equals 1 dollar. Hence, 10000 bits will have a value of 100 dollars. Many streamers have a limit to the lowest amount of bits that can be cheered. For example, a twitch streamer with a huge following may set the lowest possible cheer to 500 bits. And a streamer with fewer followers will set it to 1 bit. If we calculate using the values given above, a 1 bit cheer will be worth 1 penny.
Buying these bits on twitch will cost you a bit extra than its actual value. This is the profit that Twitch gets to keep. All the cheers and direct donations are given to the streamer without Twitch taking its cut. If you are planning to buy a substantial amount of bits, keep in mind that 250000 is the most you can buy at once. Luckily, you won’t have to worry about the bits ‘expiring’. You can keep your Twitch bits stored for as long as you wish and cheer a streamer whenever you want.
How to cheer?
Sending a streamer on Twitch some ’cheers’ is very easy. You just need to type in ‘Cheer’ in the chat and the amount of bits you want to cheer next to it. Example: Cheer10. This will send a cheer worth 10 bits in the chat. You can also customize your cheer by adding an emote and a message to it. Just click on the ‘Bits’ icon in the chat. You can also donate anonymously if you want. Neither the streamer nor others in the chat will know your username.
Depending on the streamer you are cheering for, you can avail benefits that will make you stand out from the rest of the chat. Similar to the badges given to the subscribers of the channel, there are badges for the people who cheer using bits on Twitch. Depending on the amount of bits you have donated to a specific streamer you can get different badges. These badges will be displayed in front of your username every time you use the chat to communicate with the streamer. A streamer can also have customized badges for their viewer if they want to. But that’s completely up to them.
Viewers can also donate a certain amount of money directly to the streamers. This is an easy way if you want to donate a large sum of money to the streamer. Again, as mentioned above, Twitch doesn’t take away any money from the direct donations and bits that are given to the streamer.
