What are Sparks on Mixer?
Here on Mixer, we've got some of our own site-wide currencies for you to earn, spend, and use to share some love with your favorite steamers. The most fundamental among those are, without a doubt, Sparks.
Sparks are earned by watching streams and streaming yourself. That's it!
As you earn, you can use Sparks on our site-wide Skills (such as Stickers and Rallies), and Partners have the ability to create Stickers all their own and price them however they wish. And, if you're watching a streamer with a particularly customized stream, you can also use them to engage with their MixPlay Board.
Do take note that, while Sparks are usable site-wide - Partners get an added bonus to the Embers they earn! Depending on how many Sparks are spent on a Mixer Partner's channel, they can get increasingly powerful bonuses as a result of the Spark Crystal, just below their stream window. (Each Partner's Spark crystal will keep track of this for you, so check in often!)
How do I earn Sparks?
Stream to Mixer, and watch Streams on Mixer. That's all you've got to do!
But in addition to watching and streaming on Mixer, there's a great many ways to increase the number of Sparks you earn. If you're Pro, you'll get an additional multiplier - and, same with when you subscribe to a channel.
That's why we made this handy-dandy graphic to help you keep it all straight:
