Cryptocurrency donation support for streamers

This would allow streamers to accept both PayPal and cryptocurrency donations. Cryptocurrency donations allow viewers to mine their own donations for streamers and benefits streamers by reducing charge backs through PayPal. Crypto currency is an extremely fast way to accept donations.

Personally I'd like to see fast cheap coins implemented that gamers can mine. This allows them to mine their own donations for streamers. Mobile wallets are essential to allow users to donate easily. 

I'd suggest Groestlcoin as a nice fit myself

    As others have said, we have support for multiple cryptocurrencies over at https://1upcoin.com and are open to adding new features/services. So you could start accepting different cryptocurrencies today with 1upCoin and if StreamLabs brings out their own then great. But in the meantime you can do it now with little setup!

    What you are really looking for is Brave browser. Anyone can receive cryptocurrency (BAT) donations if they are verified on their platform as a publisher. Then they can easily convert these BAT into $$$. Check it out yaaaaaaaaaw. https://basicattentiontoken.org/

    This is an absolutely fantastic idea, crypto is here to stay. Choose a cryptocurrency with transactions that are extremely fast (<30 seconds) and low transaction fees.

    There are alot of emerging a fully regulated Esports cryptocurrencies like UKG aka UnikoinGold backed by Mark Cuban and WAX by Opskins as well as more coming up and allow Twitch to interface with such tokens will grow Esports tremendously. Also we are seeing browser implemented crypto with BAT with the Brave browser. I believe crypto is the future and the sooner you add it to Twitch the easier payments will be with no risk of bank fraud or charge backs, and other issues we get from people who send money and cancel later.

    NANO instant and feeless !!

  • TheQueost commented
    February 16, 2018 11:28

    Groestlcoin would be a good fit for this. It's fast, low fee, asic resistant meaning gamers can mine, has mobile wallets for ease of use and is fully tested. 


    Bitcoin etc are too slow for notifications as you wouldn't want the alert being too late. Nano would be a good fit too but it's too new and unproven to be working. It also has no wallets yet for mobile devices yet

  • Eugene Pienaar commented
    February 16, 2018 11:31

    Groestlcoin please. Lightning quick transactions, mobile wallets across all platforms (iOS, oSX, Android, Blackberry) making is dead easy to make and receive payments, cheap transaction fees and great to mine. Perfect for gamers!

  • Kuddel55 commented

  • FelixGREN commented
    February 16, 2018 13:04

    Groestlcoin is very promising and I particularly like how it is ASIC resistant so actual gamers can mine, it's a good fit for streamlabs. However, I think that the future is mineless so I'd personally go with Nano when they get proper mobile wallets. I think it would be ideal to support multiple cryptos :)

  • Whalle commented
    February 16, 2018 15:15

    This would fit our community and I would recommend NANO. Just a currency and it's instant and no fees so all of the donations could actually go to the streamer. It's also scaleable to work even with small amounts.

  • Rahim Kandjy commented
    February 16, 2018 15:24

    Vote goes to Nano!

  • Christopher Wichert commented

    have u seen fees and the speed of transactions? it's incredible! please, do it!

  • Yokomoko_Saleen commented
    February 16, 2018 15:47

    I'd suggest a coin that you can mine with a GPU. Then gamers can effectively mine the tips that they want to give, rather than using their paypal accounts!

  • [email protected] commented
    February 16, 2018 15:49

    GRS must be a nice option, better than NANO and has privacy available like XMR

  • julienclaude5 commented
    February 16, 2018 15:51

    Nano doesn't have mobile wallet yet when Groestlcoin has multiples :)

    but thinking about streamers, they should be able to receive more than one coin for sure to allow them maximising income I think. As long as it is instant and cheap for everyone !

  • [email protected] commented
    February 16, 2018 15:58

    Nano is definitely designed for this exact thing.  Its the only instant and feeless cryptocurrency out there, which is pretty much a requirement for tipping.  Imagine paying a huge fee for just trying to tip $1, or waiting hours for the tip to go through.... Nano doesn't have those problems.  

  • Victor Palumbo commented
    February 16, 2018 16:12

    I vote for Groestlcoin or Verge. Transaction fees are low and very fast speeds. All around great for this.

  • Barhe commented
    February 16, 2018 16:13

    Nano without a doubt :)

  • Balys Gintautas commented

    NANO would be ideal.

  • Tyr808 commented
    February 16, 2018 16:55

    Crypto would be great, but due to transaction times and especially fees, Nano (XRB) is nearly instant and entirely free (as in you send $1, they get $1, nothing shaved off). This is functionally the best crypto currency to actually use as currency .

  • Silveriozak commented

    Great idea. Bitcoin has slow transactions time, however it should be included just because its Bitcoin. Coins like Litecoin, Ethereum, and XRP/XLM should be included for their much more faster transaction times and substantially lower fees.

  • wernerderchamp commented
    February 17, 2018 00:00

    GRS is clearly a great fit for this. It's a little under the hood but has a big community, extremely low fees (really, who cares about 0,0001$ fees) and working wallets for all devices. An exchange has been hacked recently, nano is probably not save for implementation yet.

    Litecoin and Ethereum have a lot of adoption and also fees <,1$ so I'd suggest to add them as well.

    I think this is an excellent idea.

    In my opinion, a set of currencies should be selected which:

    1: allow cheap and fast transactions, and

    2: are decentralized and mineable with GPUs that gamers who watch Twitch would likely have.

    Toward this end, Groestlcoin and Vertcoin would be good options, and Gridcoin would be an interesting option as well.
