Gifts and Earnings
- Partner earnings are based on the Bars value of the gift given by an audience member. Earnings are not directly proportional to the amount of likes that gift gives. Likes vary depending on the gift, and the more likes a broadcaster receives, the more they can trend, gain levels, and earn perks.
