What Can I Do with Crypto?

1. Streaming

One of the most prominent live-streaming platforms on the internet is Twitch. This site allows anyone to livestream video content, including gaming, art, education, or even just chatting with viewers. As of February 2020, Twitch has over 140 million users and a whopping 3.8 million streamers.

This is only possible for two reasons:

  1. Subscriptions: Online viewers who enjoy streamers’ content can sign up for subscriptions that usually come with some kind of perk in exchange for a monthly fee.
  2. Donations: This is where the cryptocurrency comes in. Viewers on Twitch can send “tips,” or small amounts of money, directly to the streamer. Twitch has made it possible to “tip” streamers with a choice of four cryptocurrencies that go directly to the streamer’s digital wallet: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum. The process is quick, safe, easy, and helps spread the use of cryptocurrency.

2. Movies

“Imagine a world … where everything was virtual … even the money.” (Read in a deep “movie trailer” voice with lots of drama and strategic pauses!)

3. Charity

Beyond the entertainment listed above, cryptocurrency can also be used to do more philanthropic activities. Various charity organizations have begun accepting digital currency as a means of donation. Care USA, Electronic Frontier, and Tony Hawk’s Skatepark Project, for example, allow donors to send digital currency directly to the cause.
