Twitch Cheer Bits are an in-stream currency that Twitch utilizes in its streaming platform, and is a method to support your favorite streamers by cheering for them.
Essentially, viewers can purchase bits on Twitch by heading over to their streamer’s channel of choice, locating the chatbox, clicking on the bits icon, selecting the Cheermote you want to use in your cheer, then selecting the number of bits to cheer with. Each cheer bit is equivalent to one cent. (USD)
Twitch Bits denominations:
- 1 Bits = $0.01 USD
- 10 Bits = $0.10 USD
- 100 Bits = $1.00 USD
- 1000 Bits = $10.00 USD
- 10,000 Bits = $100.00 USD
Sometimes the math can become a bit confusing when random values of Twitch Bits are donated. For instance, if 695 bits are spent on a streamer, what is the value of that in USD?
An easy way to remember how much bits are is to take the last two digits and put a decimal in front of them. Therefore, 695 bits = $6.95. Additionally, the more bits you cheer with, the more expressive the Cheermote animation, and the more badges you’ll unlock. There are also top cheerer leaderboards that streamers can activate on their channels that recognizes their top cheerers.
