Some people may have noticed talk of ScottCoins and are wondering what they are and how to use them, I'll attempt to answer all questions and how to use them below, if you have any other questions regarding ScottCoins, reply here and I'll do my best to answer it if it's not answered already.
What are ScottCoins?
ScottCoins are a loyalty system within my stream where people can earn ScottCoins in numerous ways, these can then be exchanged for prizes or used in auctions for other prizes.
Is it a "Cryptocurrency"?
No, ScottCoins aren't anything like a Cryptocurrency and are merely a virtual credit system with no value to them, (akin to coins in Mario or rings in Sonic, except you can exchange these for goodies rather than extra lives).
How do I earn ScottCoins?
ScottCoins are awarded in many ways including the following, (all are manually given and out and are on an equal basis unless otherwise stated):
1. A minimum of 1 coin every 5 minutes given out automatically.
2. I feel the community love, (such as a lively discussion within the chat).
3. Someone helps me within a game if I request the help.
4. Random handouts.
6. Bonuses when donations are made via PayPal/TwitchAlerts whilst the MrScottBot is active, (automatically adjusted).
7. There are other "mystery" ways.
Do I earn still ScottCoins if I'm not talking in the chat or AFK?
Yes, though not when you're offline or there's no stream.
Do sponsors/partners get extra ScottCoins?
This is discussed during negotiations.
Can I buy ScottCoins?
No, it's not possible to buy ScottCoins, though you'll automatically receive bonus ScottCoins if you make a donation via PayPal/TwitchAlerts whilst the MrScottBot is active.
How many bonus ScottCoins do I get through donating this way?
The current rate is 1 ScottCoin per £1.
I've donated to you, can I get some free ScottCoins?
You're more than welcome to request a few ScottCoins, however don't expect to be a millionaire because of it, please also see the answer above, this is to keep things fair for other viewers and to keep the economy of the ScottCoins balanced and fair.
What do you mean the economy of ScottCoins?
As the stream becomes more popular and more people collect ScottCoins I'll have to analyse the economy of the coins so I'm not giving out prizes and rewards every 5 seconds.
Can I transfer my ScottCoins to another account?
Not at this time, again, this is to keep the economy balanced and to avoid any inconvenience.
How do I use ScottCoins?
You can redeem set amounts of ScottCoins for prizes or use them in auctions, (check the bot commands topic for more information).
How do I redeem ScottCoins?
If it's a reward with a set amount of ScottCoins required, send me a PM on Twitch, I'll confirm your balance and then adjust your balance at the end of the stream and provide you with your chosen reward).
What prizes are there?
These vary and are listed on my Twitch info section though they can include free VOIP server hosting, Steam games, or the option to have the "ScottCoins" banner link to your Twitch page.
