Coins are Crowd Control’s in-app currency. Viewers use coins to purchase Crowd Control effects. There’s 2 types of coins:
Global Coins: Global Coins aren’t attached to any channel and can be used to interact with any Crowd Control streamer. Global Coins can be acquired via any streamer’s Interaction Portal.
Local Coins: Local Coins are attached to the channels they were acquired in. Local Coins include coins acquired through Twitch Bits, Channel Points, and donations to charity. Free and Twitch Subscriber Coins are also Local Coins.
IMPORTANT: Global Coins generate revenue when they are used to purchase effects while Local Coins generate revenue the moment they’re purchased.
