A few years ago Twitch has launched a new program called Bounty Board. This program allows streamers to earn rewards by playing games and completing tasks provided by participating brands. To put it simply, bounties are paid sponsorship opportunities that streamers can accept directly from their Twitch dashboard. In this article, we will explore what Twitch Bounty Board is and how it works…
Twitch is much more than just a streaming platform. It’s also a place where creators can earn a living by monetizing their content through subscriptions, donations, and sponsorships. And one of the ways they can do that is through Twitch Bounty Board.
This way, Twitch has become the middleman in connecting creators with brands to stream specific games as sponsorships. Now the streamers won’t have to do any of the work in handling the relationship and payment. So you can focus on your live content! And today, many streamers successfully use this program, some of whom have a high income.
Probably many remember the fuss over streamer Georgie “Pokelawls” in December last year when he accidentally showed his Twitch Bounty board during the broadcast. It was revealed that the streamer was offered a $7,365 reward for playing “Genshin Impact” within an hour and even $992 for watching a minute-long movie! Imagine, how much money will get top Twitch streamers like Kai Cenat or Felix “xQc” Lengyel.
What is Twitch Bounty Board?
Twitch Bounty Board is a program that connects game developers and publishers with Twitch streamers. The program offers streamers the opportunity to earn money by playing games and completing specific in-game challenges. The challenges are designed to promote the game and generate buzz among the Twitch community.
This is an invite-only program for Twitch Partners & Affiliates who meet certain criteria. Next, Twitch's goal is to expand the Bounty Board program to more streamers, because today this is only available to select Partners & Affiliates in the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, and France.
How does Twitch Bounty Board work?
Twitch Bounty Board works by allowing game developers and publishers to post bounties on the platform. These bounties are essentially challenges that streamers can complete by playing the game and achieving certain objectives.
For example, a bounty might require a streamer to play a specific game for a certain amount of time or complete a specific level or challenge within the game. Once a streamer completes the bounty, they will receive a payment from the game developer or publisher.
The payment for completing a bounty can vary depending on the game and the specific challenge. Some bounties may offer a flat rate payment, while others may offer a payment based on the number of viewers the streamer has during the stream.
What Are the Benefits of Twitch Bounty Board?
Twitch Bounty Board benefits both streamers and brands. For streamers, it's a great way to earn rewards while doing what they love - playing games. It also provides an opportunity for smaller streamers to get noticed by big brands, as bounties are open to all streamers regardless of their size or following.
For brands, Twitch Bounty Board is a way to get their game or product in front of a large and engaged audience. By setting tasks for streamers to complete, brands can create buzz around their product and generate excitement among Twitch users.
How to Participate in Twitch Bounty Board?
Partners from the above-mentioned countries can sign up to be on the waitlist by taking the onboarding survey by filling out the Google Form (where they should answer questions like favorite brands, stuff, etc.). After approval, streamers are added to the program, and Bounty Board will be accessible from the Twitch dashboard menu.
There, creators can search and accept paid sponsorship opportunities (bounties). Platform manages brand relationships and also processes all payments. As a result, creators can focus on streaming and growing their community.
