Bits go towards donation goals.

Since, for me personally, bits are used way more often than donations now, would be great to have bits count towards our donation goals!

    Sadly we are not allowed to implement this as it would break the Twitch terms of service:https://www.twitch.tv/p/bits-acceptable-use

    I was hoping for this, since I cannot support donations on my stream only bits!

    According to the Bits acceptable use policy:

    Broadcasters may set goals for Bits usage by the community in a certain time period in order to provide content-based or other community benefits, or create leaderboards or other community experiences and benefits in connection with Bits usage.

    Broadcasters may trigger content or give community rewards for collective Bits usage (e.g. manipulate their broadcast if a cumulative Bits goal is reached, ask viewers to vote with Bits for particular content, or arrange a meetup for the community).

    Both of these permissions fall well into the realm of what I think most people use the Donation Goal for, so I'm not sure what portion of the ToS you're referring to.

    Likely, the idea of lumping in bits in the same pile as money may constitute it as "exchanging it" as money in a really loose sense.

    What COULD work though is just having multiple colors in one progress bar. This is what I was going to make for myself and my friends, since it still keeps everything separate but combines it into one bar.
