Bit Badges and Cheer Leaderboards

Bits are virtual currency that is available on the streaming platform Twitch. They are made to encourage streamers and thus support them. You also get a chance to win a shout out from your favourite streamer, get highlighted in the chat through the use of special emoticons, get recognition through badges and get acknowledged by streamers. You even get a chance to obtain loot from during esports events like Overwatch League Cheering. 

Rather than donations or prime subscriptions, bits are “cheered”. Cheering unlocks animated emoticons, special badges and many more. Cheering shows your support towards the streamers of twitch and thus giving them encouragement. In return you get Cheer Chat Badges so that your support is recognized by the channel that you are supporting for. 

Twitch Bit Badges

Bit badges are customizable badges that streamers can customize with a custom design and name to create custom branding for their channel and their audience. Bit badges are now available to all streamers, partners and affiliates. Bit badges can be applied to the following 

  1. Single bit 
  2. Hundred bits
  3. Thousand bits
  4. Five million bits (This is also called a top level bit badge)

Bit badges help your community stand out for their support. 

Bit Donations Leaderboardtwitch-cheer-leaderboard

Leaderboards are a great way to show your support towards your channel to other viewers. Channels that have enabled Top Cheerers, top 3 cheerers are displayed on the top of the chat window. 

When does the Bit Donation leaderboard reset?

Weekly leaderboards are reset every Monday at 12.00 AM PT (Pacific Time). Monthly leaderboards are reset on the last day of the month.

How long do you keep your bit donation leaderboard, and bit badges?

If you manage to get on the leaderboard, you will retain that spot as long as someone overtakes you. Once you are overtaken you will lose that badge and will get another badge. For example if you made the number 1 spot, you will hold that spot unless someone overtakes you and obtains the number 1 spot. You will then lose the number one badge and the assigned another badge. If the creator has turned the leaderboard to “weekly”, then the leaderboard will be refreshed every Monday at 12.00 am PT. If the creator has turned the leaderboard to “monthly”, then the leaderboard will be refreshed on the last day of every month. Once the leaderboard is refreshed, then the existing top 3 badges will lose their spots and new badges who have qualified for the top 3 spot are displayed. 

What happens when a Top Cheerer or Gifter is banned / unbanned from a channel?

Once a top cheerer is banned from the channel, they will lose their badge and everyone below him will move up. If he/she is unbanned then they will become eligible to take part in the leaderboard but they will not retain their previous position and will have to qualify for that position again. These bans will not have an overall effect on the leaderboard. If however the channel is banned, then it will affect the leaderboard settings. 

What if I don’t want to be included on a leaderboard?

If you don’t want to be in the leaderboard and want to remain anonymous about or cheers, turn on Hide Progressive Gifter Badge and Gifts Given Count in your Security and Privacy settings.
