Virtual Gifts are digital stickers that can be sent to users while they are live streaming. When you send a Gift, the recipient earns credits that can be exchanged for cash or for our own cryptocurrency (known as FANZ tokens).
Send Gifts To Get Noticed
It’s not just broadcasters that benefit from Virtual Gifts. When you send a Gift, your member name and avatar appear on the stream’s Gift leaderboard for all viewers to see (with the top three supporters earning a spotlight right under the stream). What’s more, when you send a Virtual Gift, viewers who are watching the stream with you see an animated on-air graphic that acknowledges your generosity.
Send Instantly, Globally
One of the main benefits of Virtual Gifts is that you can easily support your favorite SportsCastrs regardless of their location. Virtual Gifts are sent instantly, have no transaction fees, and can be cashed out by the recipient in either USD or tokens, depending on their preferences.
Use Virtually Any Wallet
SportsCastr has a built-in wallet called the “FanWallet” that acts as home-base for buying and earning on SportsCastr. Users who elect to get paid in tokens can keep their earnings in the FanWallet, or can send them to any ERC20-compatible wallet.
All You Need Is Tix
To send Gifts, you need to buy credits known as “Tix”. You can buy Tix in packages that start at $2.99 (for a Bundle of 220 Tix) or you can save money by buying in bulk (for example, you can buy an enormous Truckload of 30,000 Tix for only $299). Buying Tix is easy: You can either use Apple’s In-App-Purchase to buy Tix with one click from within the SportsCastr iOS App, or you can use any major credit card right on SportsCastr.com
Gifts For All Occasions
Not all Virtual Gifts are worth the same. Gifts range in value from 20 Tix for a Thumbs Up to an impressive 4,000 Tix for a Diamond. When choosing a Gift to send, you’ll see the Tix cost listed right below the Gift. The more expensive the Gift, the more the person you’re sending it to earns. When you send a Gift, we will automatically deduct the cost of the Gift from your Tix balance.
Sending Virtual Gifts are a great way to support your favorite SportsCastrs. However, if you’d prefer to simply send a straight cash donation, we make that easy, too. Hit the Donate button and you’ll be able to send any amount of cash directly to the user of your choosing*.
* Credit Card donations are only available for members who have reached Member Level 2. SportsCastr takes a percentage of the credit card donation to help cover the cost of running the platform.
