What are Bits on Twitch
Bits are a virtual currency that you can use to support content creators on Twitch. When you use bits on a channel, the streamer will earn $0.01 for every Bit you used to cheer.
Generally, you can purchase bits via Amazon Payments and PayPal. But the good news is there’re also ways to get bits free of charge!
Option 1 – Complete Survey on Twitch RPG
Twitch has a survey system called Twitch RPG (Twitch Research Power Group) through which Twitch can present users questions about the platform, and improve the overall user experience with feedback.
After you complete a survey, you will be rewarded with 500 bits (sometimes less, sometimes more depending on the type of survey you receive). You can see how many bits you will receive for surveying before you start.
To claim free bits through this, all you need to do is to visit the TwitchRPG page, sign up for it, and taking surveys!
Option 2 – Watch Ads on Twitch
Another way to earn free bits is by watching ads on Twitch. But depending on where you live, you may not have the option to earn Bits from this. This is because advertisers will choose which area their Ads are shown and exclude certain locations. In this case, you might find the Watch Ads button grayed out.
To collect bits through watching ads, you need to find the Get Bits button after you enter a channel you followed. Click the button and you’ll be prompted “Get 5 or more bits by watching short ads”.
Each ad will take 30 seconds to watch. In most cases, you’ll be rewarded with earn around 5 or 10 free Bits, but some ads can reward between 50 and 100 Bits. You can view ads on both desktop and mobile devices. Just make sure you disable any Ad-blocking software or extensions.
